New optometrist wants to meet you
EYECARE Plus Optometrists have welcomed Corrine Frazer to their business in Cannonvale.
Sunny and bright, like the region she now lives in, she is expected to be an excellent addition to their team, who celebrates World Sight Day today.
Corrine Frazer has been working at Eyecare Plus in Cannonvale for three weeks.
She graduated from the University of Auckland in 2011 and spent the last three years working at a practice in Wollongong, NSW.
In her new role at Eyecare Plus, she will run comprehensive eye examinations and prescribe sunglasses, spectacles and contact lenses for patients as well as conducting regular check-ups and doing her best to ensure her patients maintain healthy eyes.
After five vigorous years of study and three years of practice in Wollongong, Ms Frazer is confident in the skills she is bringing to the region.
She was inspired to be an optometrist after watching a documentary on aid-workers repairing a young boy’s vision in a third-world country.
“I remember they gave him the gawkiest pair of thickrimmed glasses and his life had changed forever – I wanted to do just that,” she said
Her passion for optometry grows as the industry does.
“We are now trained in therapeutics so we can prescribe eye care medication and cover aboard range of optometry so we are prepared for all situations,” Ms Frazer said.
Having taken the job without visiting the area, Ms Frazer said something just felt right about this opportunity.
With a long-term goal of volunteering her services in third world countries, Ms Frazer is currently working on understanding and becoming part of the Whitsunday community.
“I want to be that friendly face you can trust,” she said.
