Principal Optometrist, BAppSc (Optom) QUT CertOcTher (ACO)
Catherine has worked in independent Optometry practices since 2004. She purchased Noosa Optical in 2007 and has been the principal Optometrist since then. Catherine is responsible for the clincial and eye care side of the practice.
She has completed post-graduate training in ocular therapeutics. She is a current member of Optometry Australia (OA) and ProVision and is registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
Charlie joined Noosa Optical in January 2022. He graduated from Flinders University in South Australia with a Bachelor of Medical Science (Vision Science) and a Master of Optometry.
He is endorsed to prescribe ocular therapeutics and is a current member of Optometry Australia (OA). Charlie is registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
Shane is the managing director of Noosa Optical and is co-owner with Catherine. He is certified in advanced optics and he also brings a personal enthusiasm for customized eyewear solutions.
Behind the scenes, Shane takes care of the administrative side of things, so the practice runs smoothly. As an independent practice, there isn’t any head office to do those jobs for us. So Shane’s role is to cover those bases.
