Bernadette completed her B. Optom degree at Rand Afrikaans University in 2003. In her final year she was awarded the most competent contact lens fitter award. On completion of her degree, she worked for two large optometry groups. In 2007, she started Grand Optical in The Ferndale Village Centre with Stanley and De Kock and in 2010, Bernadette bought the branch over and it became an independent practice, Ferndale Optometrists.
Bernadette makes every effort to make your visit to Ferndale Optometrists as professional and personal as possible. She has a special interest in dry eye and contact lenses.
Irene has been the practice assistant at Ferndale Optometrists since 2010. She is very hard working and helpful. No task is too big for Irene and she takes full pride in working for Ferndale Optometrists
Bernadette is not only a pleasure to engage with but is a master of her trade and an absolute professional. The entire optometric examination was conducted very professionally with state of the art tech. Each one of my questions was met with a wealth of knowledge and a friendly and welcoming demeanour. After a well conducted diagnosis, Bernadette continued to take me through a very pleasant sales process of selecting frames which spoke to my needs and wants directly. I am thrilled with my new view of the world and I would recommend Ferndale Optometrists to anyone I meet.Alain Hewetson
I have been both a happy client and a satisfied patient of Bernadette Chadinha’s even before she took over the practice as her own.
The distinction of client and patient is necessary because both needs are separate and important. She is at once highly professional and personable and connects with everyone who goes there in a manner befitting our individuality.
She’s assisted by a very efficient and friendly Irene Koen.
I strongly recommend them to family, friends and even foesWinston Smith
