Who are we?


Weck & Danner Optometrists (oldest practice in Paarl) and Clear Vision & Hearing (previous Spectacle Warehouse) merged together in September 2018 to form Optique Paarl.


Optique forms part of a bigger vision and has a sister practice in Sandton and in Bloemfontein.

Our vision is to simplify eye care.


The process of getting an eye test and perhaps glasses/contact lenses should be:


Easy. Fun. Interesting. Affordable. Professional.


We don't believe in being a sausage factory nor giving you a bill which you have to sit down for. It's simple - you get what you sign up for...awesome and affordable eye care.


Optique means "Optical" in French... but we think its a nice combination of Optometry and Unique. Our logo represents a bunch of prisms which exposes a spectrum of colour and diversity. We really love optometry and think it's awesome what we get to do. We hope you do too!

What makes us different?


1. Our eye examinations are 45 minutes and only R99.


2. We do have payment plans available for up to 6 months.


3. We accept all medical aids, VISA, Mastercard and cash.  


4. We offer 2 years of FREE accidental breakage cover on all of our eyewear...which means if you break it, we will replace it.

5. Buy-a-pair-give-a-pair: If you purchase eyewear from us, you can nominate a less privileged person and we will give them a free eye test and a pair of glasses if needed.​


6. We have invested in the latest in equipment to ensure ultimate eye care.


7. We have dedicated parking right in front of the practice.


8. Our frames are updated every 6 months to the latest trends and the frame in the stores are only show units. You get a brand new frame out of the box...every time.

Excellent customer service, very friendly, professional and efficient. Leon is very thorough, he's good at what he does and he pays attention to every small detail. It only took a few days and I had my pair of glasses, already recommended to quite a number of people. Thank you

Fantastic service, the office is beautifully laid out, easy to choose frames. They went over and beyond my expectations by taking an interest in my fibromyalgia and how it could affect my eyesight. Thank so once again and see you in 6 months time

Brilliant service-everyone is friendly and they make you feel welcome.

Leon was very thorough when he did the tests and gave sound and expert advice on my contact lenses, eye drops as well as glasses.

Well done and thank you Leon and ladies, keep it up!
