Heather was born shortsighted so had a limited view of life for her first few years.  Finally someone realised she needed spectacles and she discovered there was a whole new world at the end of the street.  So optometry was the perfect choice of career.  With new technologies and continued education there have been new challenges and the job remains as exciting as it was early on.

 

When not at work, Heather can be found playing her fiddle with gusto for Scottish dances, exploring the Outer Hebrides and learning Gaelic.

 

Specialty interests: low vision, children's vision, advanced contact lenses (including keratoconus)

Hadyn graduated from the University of Auckland Optometry School in 1998.

 

He has since worked in practices in Wellington, Auckland, Adelaide and throughout southern England and Wales. Education and study is a big part of working as an optometrist and in addition to his initial training, he has studied at City University, London and has also completed his post-graduate certificate in ocular therapeutics.

Hadyn has worked in the glaucoma clinic at both Greenlane and Middlemore Hospital.

He is currently the Vice-President of the New Zealand Association of Optometrists.

 

Specialty interests: dry eye, glaucoma, myopia control, children's vision and advanced contact lenses (including keratoconus)

Robert was born and bred in Auckland and graduated with honours from the University of Auckland and is therapeutically qualified to prescribe medications to treat various eye problems.

 

He is also a Teaching Fellow/ Clinic Supervisor at the University of Auckland where he is involved in teaching optometry students in their specialty contact lens clinic and is the lead investigator in various research studies. In 2021, he was awarded the University of Auckland's Dennis Pickup Clinical Educator Award.

 

Robert has worked in the glaucoma clinic at both ADHB and CMDHB.

Currently, Robert is a member of the Optometrists and Dispensing Opticians Board's Competence Review Committee.

Originally from South Africa, Sandhya grew up in Pakuranga and graduated from the University of Auckland in 2008 and is therapeutically qualified to prescribe medications. She has spent time working in windy Wellington before moving back up to Auckland.

Sandhya also works at the Manukau Superclinic and Middlemore in the diabetic eye and glaucoma clinics and has completed Australian College of Optometry's Advanced Certificate in glaucoma.
