B App Sc.Optom, Grad Cert (Ocular Therapeutics)

Eleanor completed her Bachelor of Optometry Degree at QUT in Brisbane and has since worked in a diverse range of communities including regional NSW, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Townsville. Eleanor then returned to university to complete a Post Graduate Certificate in Ocular Therapeutics in 2008 to prescribe medicines to treat eye disease. These further qualifications led to work in ophthalmology practice and, therefore, Eleanor has a particular interest and knowledge in the management and treatment of ocular pathology for over 13 years.

Eleanor commenced work with Vision Michael Hare at the new Burleigh location in November 2019 and also continues her role as a Clinical Optometrist in Ophthalmology. Eleanor’s experience, in conjunction with the state of the art equipment at Burleigh, enables a comprehensive consultation to test for ocular disease as well as various retinal issues. Having worked on the Gold Coast since 1996, Eleanor has a loyal following.

Outside of work, Eleanor enjoys fitness and running. Eleanor and her husband are very proud of their young adult children.
