Meet our Optometrists
Born and bred Queenslander. I have lived most of my life on the north side of Brisbane after spending the early years in country Queensland. School education was locally at Nudgee College.
My undergraduate study in Optometry was done at QUT and I graduated in 1988. On graduation I began work at Roberts and Alexander Optometrists.
Since graduating, I have completed a fellowship in Behavioural Optometry and developed special interest in children’s vision and learning, vision therapy, contact lenses, orthokeratology and sports vision. This was followed by additional qualifications in Ocular Therapeutics. Optometry has also given me the opportunity to travel and work overseas with working for an Aide group in India being a highlight.
Outside of optometry, sport has kept me fit and healthy which is why there is an interest in sports vision. These days with four children my time to participate in sport is limited to the odd game of golf or tennis.
Madeline completed her Bachelor of Vision Science and Master of Optometry at QUT, graduating with distinction. At the completion of her studies she was awarded the Optometry Australia QLD/NT Award for clinical performance in her masters degree.
Madeline is a caring and friendly optometrist who is passionate about eyecare for all ages. She carries a particular interest in children’s eyecare and vision therapy. She is well-practiced in the fields of myopia control and contact lenses. Madeline also has a passion for the management of ocular health and diseases.
In her downtime, Madeline lives an active lifestyle. She enjoys spending time with her young family.
Annabel started her optometry journey at Queensland University of Technology as a Vice Chancellor’s scholar, after moving from her hometown of Townsville, North Queensland. During her Masters, her group was awarded best research project in mini-scleral contact lenses; she was also given the opportunity to travel to remote indigenous communities in Western Australia to provide eyecare.
In building her clinical skills as an optometrist, Annabel developed an interest in paediatrics, myopia control including ortho-K, and therapeutics. She has also mentored students and university graduates, and been a guest speaker at various optometry events and webinars.
In her free time, Annabel enjoys social outings with friends and family, as well as spending time with her active blue-heeler dog. She also likes yoga, travelling, hiking through national parks and discovering new local cafes and restaurants.
