Budget Optix Hermanus

Budget Optix was started by Jan le Roux Plettenberg Bay as he saw a need for affordable spectacles for those without Medical Aid. Johan Pretorius from Pappin and Pretorius Optometrist was Hermanus Rotary Club President for two years and is a Paul Harris Fellow in conjunction with Dr Anton van Biljon. Together we did over two hundred cataract operations for indigent patients in Hermanus at the Provincial Hospital and Hermanus Medi Clinic.

Johan that have been practicing in Hermanus for the last 21 years knew there is a huge demand for affordable spectacles for the needy, hence the opening of Budget Optix at Hermanus Vision Centre. Johan was joined by fellow optometrist Fred ten Have, no stranger to Hermanus that practice here a few years ago. We supply spectacles including a basic eye test from R495 inclusive of a recycled frame for single vision but also supply bifocals and multifocals all-inclusive under R2 000.

We are one of the few optometry practices that are NHI Ready (National Health Insurance). We do eye-tests, glaucoma screening, colour vision, driver’s licenses. Please bring your employee’s, domestic-, farm- workers that we be of service to them.

We are incredibly unique, in that we supply recycle spectacle frames that have been completely refurbished, sterilized and new nose and earpieces fitted. We also supply brand new NHI, Playa and Sightique Optical frames.
