Our optometry practice started 40 years ago when the motorway ended at Smales Farm. Hard to believe the change in the area over that time. Originally, the practice was at the intersection between Kitchener and Shakespeare Roads, but the building it was in was knocked down to produce a throughway to Omana Road. It has been in its present location for many years. Over that time period, optometry has had a lot of technical development. We now have more equipment than ever to measure different parts of the eye – like the curve of the cornea which allows us to do specialist contact lens fitting. We can also accurately measure your peripheral vision and have an OCT machine that can take scans and photographs of different parts of the eye. Contact lenses have developed over the years too, with a large emphasis on the daily use of contact lenses or myopia control contact lenses. Optical lenses are now better than ever- progressive lenses allow people to see easily at all distances with minimal peripheral distortion. Optical frames are constantly evolving – and the best way to keep up to date with this is to talk to us.
MEET OUR TEAM
Optometrist and Owner
I started at Milford Optometrists in 2003, just after graduating from the University of Auckland with Honours. It was always my dream to own my own practice and I was lucky enough to achieve this dream early on. Optometry offers a great variety of people, and I enjoy the problem-solving aspect of patient demands.
This job offers great variety and I have been at Milford Optometrists for over 10 years. Difficult frame repairs and adjustments is something I particularly enjoy, as well as running the practice as efficiently as possible. I also enjoy working with a large variety of people at different ages and stages.
I joined the Milford Optometrist team in 2022. I have special interests in ocular therapeutics and can offer various methods for controlling short-sightedness such as Atropine drops, Orthokeratology, and MiSight soft contact lenses. I am also a glaucoma prescriber which means I can co-manage glaucoma cases alongside ophthalmologists.
