My name is Stephanie

StephanieI’m on a constant pursuit to know more about the complexity of your eyes and your vision to improve the quality of your life. Dr Stephanie Yeo Optometrist BOptom (HC1) GradCertOcTher DOPT (Merit) CO Ophthalmic Medicines Prescriber.

My grandfather was a traditional medicine practitioner who devoted his life to his patients and lost the battle to Parkinson’s disease. His life story is the blueprint of what I am.

Having been in the field since 2003, I have been engaged in different roles and responsibilities during this time – clinical optometry, community outreach, a teaching role, youth expedition, low vision and research.

My special interests: children’s vision and community eyecare.

Being independent means we are all for you. E Eye Place is about having a nice experience at the optometrist and supporting good vision.
