Tell me more


Meskin Optometrists have been a household name in Cape Town for over 40 years.

  • Bernie Meskin

    Bernie Meskin returned to South Africa in 1998 after a two year sojourn in the U.S. and was inundated with requests from former patients, for him to provide the quality of care they had sorely missed while he was abroad.

  • Matthew Meskin

    Matthew Meskin qualified as an optometrist in South Africa and the UK and has gained extensive professional experience in both countries.

  • Sea Point Practice

    The father son duo opened a new practice in Sea Point in 2001. The practice has grown exponentially and Meskin Optometrists offer clients first class professional care. This includes incorporating the latest technology and the new techniques which continue to advance eye care worldwide.
