Optometrist and Owner of Optom-Eyez Elia has been an Optometrist for over 16 years. After obtaining her Bachelor of Optometry from RAU University (now University of Johannesburg), her career started in 2003 with a mobile optometry practice serving Gauteng-based corporate and industrial clients including: the Development Bank of South Africa, Momentum, Bell Equipment and Nestle, among others. She then spent over 4 years at a franchise-group practice. In August 2010 she took the leap and acquired a practice of her own and renamed it Optom-Eyez. She is passionate about providing her customers with exceptional service, quality and value for money products.


A close family member of mine was diagnosed with a brain tumour after being referred to a neurologist by an optometrist after going for an eye exam, and was thus inspired to go into the profession. I was amazed that by going to what most people would think is an ordinary check-up, a really serious issue can be picked up and make a big difference in someone’s life“.

Optom-Eyez is doing everything in our control to keep you and our staff safe.

The following measures are put in place:

  • On entering the store all clients and staff to sanitize their hands with sanitizer provided. 
  • All clients to wear their own mask or cloth face covering upon arrival to the facility.
  • Staff will be wearing face shields, and masks when in close proximity to clients.
  • We will be working on an appointment only basis. This applies to all services including frame repairs, adjustments and spectacle and contact lens collections. This is to try have only one client in the store at a time, as well as to be sure we have all surfaces and stock sanitized in between appointments.
  • Companions should remain outside of the facility and not accompany the client unless they are a parent/guardian or if they are a true care giver and need to assist the client
  • Please inform us if you are not feeling well, we will be happy to reschedule your appointment.

Your patience and understanding during this difficult and stressful time will be greatly appreciated.

See you soon!

Comprehensive eye exams include refraction for eyeglasses and a thorough evaluation of the health of your eyes. We also do testing for glaucoma as well as dry eyes. We set aside between 30 to 45 minutes for a consultation.


Contact lenses are an excellent alternative to wearing glasses especially for the more active individual. We provide various brands of soft contact lenses, as well as cosmetic coloured contact lenses. We determine the proper contact lens prescription to ensure the best comfort and vision based on your visual demands. We provide one-on-one training for beginners on inserting, removing and taking care of the lenses. We can also fit people that have astigmatism as well as people who wear multifocals.
