Charlotte graduated from QUT in 2015 with her Bachelor of Vision Science and Master of Optometry with training in ocular therapeutics. In 2014 she travelled to Mexico where she performed eye tests and supplied glasses to the locals in a small town. Charlotte enjoys working with contact lenses and during her studies, she received the Cooper Vision Contact Lens Prize.
Charlotte is very excited to be working in a practise which will allow her to develop her skills not only in general optometry, but also areas like therapeutics, contact lenses, paediatrics and behavioural optometry. She feels very fortunate to be receiving excellent mentoring and support from Eyes@Narangba’s senior optometrists, Lisa and Mel. Her happy disposition and keenness to be thorough in testing has made her an important part of the team.
