BOptom (Hons) TPA CAA

Hunter obtained his bachelor of Optometry from the University of Auckland in 2003 Hunter first built his practical experience under the watchful eye of Laurence O’connell from 2003 to 2006 Hunter then continued to provide optometry services to the Central Otago community and took ownership of the Alexandra practice in 2006. He also created the Cromwell practice in 2009. This has been very well received by the local community, which shows how needed a new Cromwell practice was. You will enjoy Hunter’s highly professional approach and his thrive to innovate locally, for example by introducing specialised equipment for detection of Glaucoma and also pioneering the Orthokeratology treatment in the region in 2010. To make your experience more enjoyable, Hunter also likes looking at things with a touch of humour.
