Optometrist – BSc(Optom) GradCertOcTher
I have been an optometrist for over 25 years, and have completed postgraduate studies in ocular medicines, as well as further training in children’s visual function. My special interests include the early detection of eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration. I was a member of the Optometry Board of Australia for 9 years. In 2014 I felt privileged to receive an Order of Australia Medal for my contributions to the optometry profession. I am a Fitzroy local who combines working at Dresden with teaching in the optometry program at Deakin University.
Optometrist – BScOptom CertOcTher
It’s been more than 25 years since I began practising optometry in Melbourne, and I’ve worked in both corporate and private practices over that time. I’ve owned and operated an optometry store too, so it’s been really interesting joining Dresden, which does things so differently to everyone else – especially the making of glasses in store. My particular interests include detection of eye disease such as glaucoma, diabetes and paediatrics. I’ve recently completed postgraduate study in ocular therapeutics.

Optometrist – BOptom(Hons) TPA qualified
I’ve been full-time at the Smith St store since we first opened our doors to Fitzroy customers and wider Melbourne. I’m a therapeutically endorsed optometrist and have previously worked in private and corporate practices in New Zealand and Australia. I enjoy the clinical side of things. Areas that especially interest me include contact lenses and dry eye disease. I’ve collaborated on some interesting research into warm compress treatment for meibomian gland dysfunction, which has been published in two international optometry and vision science journals.
