Dr Malinda Halley
 
OPTOMETRIST & OPHTHAMIC MEDICINES PRESCRIBER
B. Optom (Uni NSW, Hons), Grad Cert Oc Ther (Uni NSW, Hons)

 

Malinda is the principal optometrist of the practice.

She is an Illawarra local, who graduated from the University of New South Wales in 1994 and completed her therapeutic post-graduate qualifications there in 2010, allowing her to access the PBS eye medications and manage a wider range of eye care in-house.  She has been in private practice in Dapto since 1995 and moved to her current location here on Baan Baan Street in 2004. She has a particular interest in ocular health: dry eye, macula disease, glaucoma and cataract management.

Malinda has recently completed the OEP curriculum (www.oepf.org) on vision therapy to resolve visual dysfunctions.

When not caring for her patients, Malinda enjoys cooking, eating, spending time with her family, friends and the great outdoors. 

 

Malinda has / had membership of these professional associations:

    OA  - Optometry Australia (formerly known as the Optometrist's Association of Australia, which was a lot harder to pronounce)

    The Australian Ausoptom professional email forum

    Way too many eye-related facebook groups... :-)
