Andy Muir founded Muir Optometrists in 1986 and has led it through its growth with professionalism and sensitivity to patients and the community.

Andy Muir is well known in the Knysna community through his exploits in Rotary, Golf, Tennis and previously with the formation of Oakhill School in Knysna. He offers Rotary vision screening for indigents when possible (using recycled frames for the needy) and he understands the unique needs of sports persons.

When you walk into Muir Optometrists' Reception, you will immediately sense the care and patient-centric approach that sets us apart.

Muir Optometrists' ethos of patient-centric, sensitive care is cultivated in all staff members. Our quality care spills over into environmental awareness meaning all obsolete plastic optical products, like frames, lenses and disposable contact lenses are recycled where possible, or disposed of responsibly.

At Muir Optometrists Knysna we really care about each patient and love catching up when you visit us for your eye check-up.

Being community focused is at the heart of Muir Optometrists. Amanda Vlok was our very first patient in 1986; at 93 years old, she was still a valued patient and she cut the ribbon and eloquently declared our new premises open decades later! Even contractors and workers enjoyed coffee & biscuits at the opening.

Member of the College of Optometrists (UK) and in SA - your eye care is in Andy Muir's capable hands!
"After getting rushed service and faulty lenses from a competing chain that was running a special, I sheepishly returned to Muir Optometrists. Thank you for welcoming me as warmly as ever and taking my needs seriously until my new spectacles were perfect."
