My name is Kiran and since early 2018 I have been chair of the ECO WA committee.

I graduated from the University of Auckland in 2013 with my Bachelor of Optometry (Honours) and since graduating have worked at an OPSM practice in the south of Perth. I have an interest in therapeutic optometry and in specialty contact lenses - especially for myopia control and for correcting keratoconic eyes.

As the chair of ECO WA, I hope to engage members in the issues that the optometry profession faces and to help be a conduit for members' issues to be heard by Optometry Australia.

My name is Roxanne Medhora and I’m currently on the board of Optometry Western Australia and the vice-chair of ECO WA.

I completed my Bachelor of Science (Biomedical Science) at the University of Auckland in 2010 before undertaking my Bachelors of Optometry (Honours) at the same university, graduating in 2015. Following graduation, I made the move to Perth and worked at an independent practice for over two years before deciding to become a locum so that I could travel around Australia and expand my scope of work. I mainly practise in regional and rural areas around Australia but have my home base in Perth where I locum as well.

I have a special interest in ocular pathology and enjoy the challenge of binocular vision work-ups and neuro-optometry. I also enjoy contact lenses and continue to expand my knowledge in specialty lenses.

By being part of ECO WA, I hope to help create a platform for new graduates to transition smoothly into work and to help them find that work-life balance. I was once told by one of my mentors that "optometry can be as interesting or as boring as you want it to be” which has motivated me to dig deeper and to think outside the square to keep things interesting for myself. Due to that, my passion for optometry keeps growing and I hope I can spread that passion using the ECO platform.

My name is David and I’m a former board director of Optometry Western Australia. I am a co-founder of ECO WA and and now serve on the ECO WA committee as an advisor.

I completed my post-graduate Master's degree in 2014 from QUT and I am now an optometrist partner at Specsavers Innaloo. I have a special interest in myopia control and contact lenses.

I am very passionate about the optometry profession and conscious that it is constantly changing. My hope for the profession to remain sustainable – whether from a corporate or independent – is for all optometrists to unite to work towards the common goal of expanding our scope of practice to provide better eye care, as well as advocating for higher monetary support from the government.

I hope that ECO WA can not only connect our early career optometrists but also inspire individuals to take pride in their chosen profession and become leaders in the industry.

I think it’s great ECO WA is here to guide young optometrists in the early stages of their careers and I hope that our member base will continue to grow and that we will see more new faces at future events.

My name is Kitty and I am the newest member of the ECO WA committee.

I graduated with a Master of Optometry from Queensland University of Technology in 2016 – so I’m still pretty fresh out in the world! I’m currently working at Specsavers Wanneroo and have a keen interest in ocular therapeutics and children’s vision.

I encourage you to join ECO WA as I believe it will offer you just as much (if not more) guidance and social support as it did for us.
