Chantelle Brits
Optometrist

As the owner of Vision by Design,
Chantelle endeavours to provide
high quality vision care for the
whole family.

EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND

Chantelle obtained her optometry degree at Rand Afrikaans University (now UJ) in 2000. She has been in private practice since, and has furthered her studies in Advanced Contact Lens Fitting (Newenco 2009) and Ocular Diseases & Diagnostics (UKZN 2011). She has practiced abroad (United Kingdom and Trinidad & Tobago), but is proud to call South Africa her permanent home.

FIELD OF INTEREST

Though Chantelle enjoys all aspects of optometry, she has a special interest in paediatric optometry as well as speciality contact lens fitting. Before starting her own practice in 2020, Chantelle was a partner in a well-established paediatric practice in the north of Johannesburg for 9 years. During this time, she became experienced in assisting children with various difficulties such as learning disability, dyslexia, cerebral palsy, etc.

GIVING YOU A FRESH START

Chantelle is extremely passionate about speciality lens fitting and assisted many patients with corneal conditions such as keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration and corneal grafts to achieve vision they never imagined would be possible. With orthokeratology, she has provided many adults and children the freedom to enjoy their sports and hobbies without being hampered by spectacle wear.
