Paul graduated in 1994, and has always been committed to assisting people overcome vision problems. In 2003, he decided the best way to achieve this, was to offer a targetted vision therapy service to the Gold & Tweed Coast communities, and Harmony Vision Care was born! Paul is a Fellow of the Australasian College of Behavioural Optometry, an experienced contact lens practitioner, and is involved in the education of optometrists in vision training and other facets of vision care.
Paul believes that what he truly practices is “Optometry for the Individual”. Whether it be vision training, glasses, custom or disposable contact lenses, orthok or precision tinted lenses, Paul will consult with you, completely assess your vision and custom design a treatment approach that is right for you. If you want a fresh approach, then Paul is the Optometrist for you!
