Welcome to Early Career Optometrists Tasmania

The newly formed ECO group in Tasmania supports over 20 young optometrists located on the Apple Isle. There are two chapters of the group – one for southern ECOs located in Hobart and one for northern-based young professionals in Launceston.

ECO Tasmania has two co-chairs – Tran Dang and Shazaan Khambiye – who meet quarterly to discuss issues and initiatives to create a vibrant network of young optometry professionals. Together they work out an annual calendar of informal networking and social occasions as well as educational events with local pharmacists and optometrists also invited to attend
