Ms. Celine Zhang graduated from the UNSW Bachelor Optometry/Science course with First Class Honours. She is passionate about providing quality, individualised eye care to patients of all ages – no two pairs of eyes are the same! Before becoming an optometrist, she worked as an Optical Assistant at Eyecare Plus and looks forward to continuing that relationship with patients.
In university, she was awarded the Susan Larter Vision Trust prize, for “demonstrating clinical excellence and knowledge of paediatric optometry and vision training” and the Stage 4 Ocular Therapeutics Prize for the highest mark in therapeutics.
She has a special interest in paediatric optometry, myopia control, dry eye and therapeutic management of ocular disease. She is therapeutically endorsed and is qualified to treat a wide variety of eye conditions ranging from dry eye to co-managing glaucoma with ophthalmologists.
She continues to pursue postgraduate study in behavioural optometry with the Optometric Extension Program Foundation (OEPF) and Myopia Control with the Brien Holden Vision Institute Academy. She is currently undertaking a Specialist Certificate in the Management of Paediatric Patients (Optometry) from the University of Melbourne.
She completed an internship alongside renowned ophthalmologists (Glaucoma, Cataract, Oculoplastic and Retinal specialists) in OMNI Eye Services New York and New Jersey, where she gained knowledge of surgical and advanced therapeutic treatments for eye disease.
She regularly co-manages patients with Ophthalmologists, Occupational Therapists and Speech Therapists.
