About Us.

We will always rebel against the norm. We live and we love. We say no to ugly glasses and yes to giving back. Our vision scares us a little but excites us a lot.

The Company

We help people not only see better but look and feel better than ever before. We love what we do!

In Optometry, we have a gift that we can give to others, the gift of sight. While most optometrists see (pun intended) people as patients, we also see them as human beings. Yes, people want to see better, but don’t they also want to look good and feel great?

Our Journey portrayed in a short Poem by Liscinda van Eck (Werner’s Sister)

One very long, very cold night and one very tall bottle of red wine, that is where it all began. A combination of passion and a smoke-filled room filled with dreams. That dream turned into 5 practices, 2 dogs and a wife. With music in our veins and family is our bones.

Jokes, tears, and a little bit of heavy sweat; A few times I might add. It started at Southern Cape., then Southern Gauteng. Southern Gauteng again. Southern Gauteng once again!

And now added. Remastered. Cultured. Brand New. Bril. Western Cape. Afrikaans. Want ons is.

Our promise

The eyewear industry is changing.

Not all people will like Bril, but hey, we may not like all people. That is okay. We have decided that we want to align our business with likeminded people that, like us, don’t take life too seriously.

How do we get these BRIL’liant prices? 

You will be forgiven for being a little sceptical about our great prices (our prices are based on happy numbers) and may be wondering how we can charge so little for handcrafted frames when the industry norm for similar quality and designs are two to three times more. The answer is pretty simple:

We cut out the middleman… 

We have found the right manufacturers that can make high-quality frames but still have a sense of style that is current and trendy. Our frames are amazing, even if we have to say so ourselves. We often travel overseas to source the best frames. We encourage people to compare our frames and lenses to any other online store. When we started our company we made a promise that we will never sell anything that we will not wear ourselves.

We are so confident about the quality of our products that we offer a 30 Day Fit Guarantee, 365 Day Frame Guarantee and 730 Day Lens Guarantee. We want to ensure you are comfortable buying from us. If you are, for whatever reason, not happy with your product in the first 30 days, you can return it for a refund or replacement.

Welcome to Hello Bril, or hello, welcome to Bril. Either way, we look forward to helping you find the perfect frame and enjoy eyewear at a reduced cost. If you have any prescription questions, contact us, we will be happy to assist.
