We are a Pretoria based Optometrist, passionate about eyes and focused on your well-being and giving you the best vision care possible.
It was back in 1957 that my father William (Bill) Heath began practicing optometry in Pretoria. In those days the practice was in central Pretoria in Pretorius Street.
I, Colin Heath, qualified in 1979 and began there with my dad, and we soon opened the first practice in the heart of Pretoria in August of 1980 in Glenfair Shopping Centre. Marthi Wentzel and I formed a partnership in 1997 and thus the name Heath and Wentzel was formed. In 2007 we opened up our second practice in Hazeldean Shopping Centre.
Since then we have dedicated ourselves to providing the most up to date, comprehensive vision care, with emphasis on family eye care. We have extensive knowledge in child vision, vision related learning problems, contact lenses as well as forms of vision corrective care in ageing patients.
Marthi Wentzel qualified in 1991 and joined the practice in 1994.
Marthi is loyal and committed to all her patients, and has been particularly instrumental in continuing and enhancing the child vision care in the practice.
Michael Heath, my son, qualified in 2012 from the University of Johannesburg and we employed him in 2013, to be the third generation “arm” of the business. He brings the necessary flair and balance for the firm and can relate to all the young adults requirements.
As a team we are here to serve you, young and old, in testing and determining the optimum vision correction for your lifestyle.
We look forward to seeing you shortly.
Colin, Marthi and Michael.
