A founding partner in Eye5 Optometrists since 2004, Andrew has a special interest in caring for patients with complicated eye conditions, particularly those with corneal conditions and cataracts. He has a keen interest in contact lens fitting for people who have Keratoconus or corneal grafts. He has introduced hybrid contact lenses to Western Australia to help people who find RGP or hard contact lenses uncomfortable. There are very few practitioners left who have a special interest in this area.
Andrew worked for many years at the Lions Eye Institute as a clinical optometrist. As the Institute grew he took over management of optometry staff across two hospitals along with management of the Lions Laser Vision Centre. Having seen the results of thousands of LASIK procedures and been involved in the development, installation and training of the latest in laser technology he is well placed to give advice on the full range of vision correction.
He has studied all aspects of contact lens wear and care for many years. He has even written a text book chapter on tears and contact lenses in Contact Lenses (5th Edition) Phillips and Speedwell.
He has also worked as a consultant involved in ophthalmology research for a start up company based in Orange County, California. This company raised over 125 million dollars for ophthalmic research and product development. He has also travelled throughout the world teaching and certifying eye clinics.
Since graduation from Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Brisbane in 2000 with a university medal, Andrew has continued his post graduate study receiving a Graduate certificate in ocular therapeutics in 2011 from the University of NSW. He is also a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
Andrew was the deputy chairman of the national office of Optometrists Association Australia based in Melbourne and was the president of the Western Australian division for many years. After 10 years helping optometrists throughout Australia, he is now concentrating on helping people to see better in Perth.
Bachelor of Vision Science/ Master of Optometry
Natalie Guillon moved to Geelong, Victoria, to study the Bachelor of Vision Science/Master of Optometry course at Deakin University. During her studies she undertook placement at the Australian College of Optometry (ACO) in Melbourne.
In addition to working at Eye5 Optometrists, she also works alongside a number of ophthalmologists at the Perth Lions Eye Institute, which compliments her optometry work at Eye5 by expanding her scope of skills, experience and knowledge. She is passionate about looking after her patients and their needs. She has a special interest in contact lenses, but is motivated to become accomplished in all areas relevant to optometry.
Aside from her work, she has a love for basketball, which she played competitively for the Perry Lakes Hawks. She also enjoys traveling and learning about new cultures/lifestyles, which she hope to incorporate into her optometry career through overseas volunteer work.
