About Us

Our History

Our practice, initially called Essar Segal Optometrist, has its roots in Malvern, Johannesburg. Leslie Sessel followed the trends of the fast developing eastern suburbs and relocated the practice to Bedfordview in 2000. Upon moving to Bedfordview, the practice was renamed Leslie Sessel Optometrist.
