Jonathan Sykes
Optometrist – BSc(Hons) MCOptom GradCertOcTher

I graduated with honours from the University of Wales in 1986, and have been a member of the College of Optometrists since 1988. I’m therapeutically registered in the treatment of anterior eye conditions and glaucoma, and my optometry career has taken me to Europe, Africa and now Australia. As a clinic supervisor at UNSW I specialise in low vision rehabilitation and Aboriginal eyecare.

I am the inventor of WolfChart, an open source eyechart that works in an internet browser. All of our Dresden practices use it, plus it is in use by community orthoptists, researchers at the George Institute, and even in a Hebrew version in Israel.

Community involvement is important to me and so is sustainability – so Dresden is a great fit. As a home brewer, I love wearing frames that are made from recycled beer keg caps!

Hey, I’m Cat - a therapeutically endorsed optometrist. I have worked in both independent and corporate practices since graduating in 2016.

I love being part of the Dresden community and am very passionate about their sustainable approach to custom eyewear.I believe that vision care is of vital importance to every person’s future and that looking after our eyes and managing any optical issues are protective of general function, independence and quality of life overall.

Every person’s needs are different and unique to their own situation. I believe that an individualised approach in looking after your visual health is important - My aim as your optometrist lies in individualised care and providing you with education around maintaining healthy eyes.
