Between us, the 2 in-house Optoms; Elsu van der Ryst and Lelani Rautenbach, we have more than 20 years’ experience in the field of Optometry. Pretoria East has always been our home and we are excited about our new name and location.

Our commitment is to listen to our patient’s visual requirements and needs; and together find solutions. Not only is our patient’s sight important, but also their insight of their diagnosis. We ensure that our patients leave the practice well informed of what needs to be done and why.

“Sight is a function of the eyes, but vision is a function of the heart”

so visit us at van der Ryst optometrist to see what vision is all about!
