Not selling, not retiring!

Yes – Adelaide’s worst kept secret is true. At the end of March (Easter) I will be closing my Parkside office and relocating my patient records to the independent practice Optometry on Osmond. This will allow me to continue working and providing quality eye care whilst giving me more time to go fishing cycling!

I plan on working from October to May each year (and I’ll continue working in remote Indigenous community clinics). This means that I can still see patients on a regular basis, but if you have an emergency or other immediate problem David O’Brien or Gavin O’Callaghan can look after your needs. I highly recommend their professional competence and skills. Gavin and David have provided back-up cover for me for the last few years and we’ve always had very positive feedback.

Ann will be retiring – travel and grandchildren beckon. We’re both looking forward to the next stage in our lives. From 24th March 2016 the phone in my Parkside office will be diverted to Optometry on Osmond where all future appointments, orders for contact lenses and solutions and repairs will be undertaken.

Optometry on Osmond is at Suite 2/ 78 Osmond Tce, Norwood SA 5067 (on the south eastern side, very close to the corner of The Parade). Phone 8332 1444. Their new website will be launched in a few weeks time.)

To my ‘old patients’ – thank you for your past loyalty – I hope we can continue our professional relationship for many years to come at Optometry on Osmond.

To new patients – see you at the new place!

We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

We’re taking some R&R time so the office will be closed from 4pm on Christmas Eve to 9am on 11th January 2016.

We’ll be monitoring the answering service so you can leave a message on 8373 2210 and we’ll return your call as soon as we can.

Thanks for helping to make 2014 another busy year.  We look forward to seeing you in 2016.

Local film-makers Urtext Films were commissioned by Sight For All to make a documentary about their work in Lao (I was involved with one of the SFA projects in 2013).

Urtext have done a great job – and the film will have it’s New York debut in June.

You can see it here (watch for the “WOW’ just after the 3.12 minute mark!).
