Our History

Eyecare Plus Altona is an independent, Australian owned business in the heart of Altona.  We were originally located at Altona gate shopping centre for over 30 years but decided that Altona Village was the best spot for our new location. Here we have more space including 2 consultation room and a large vision therapy room for our vision therapy clinic, known as Vision Advantage. You’ll find us right next to the dentist. You’ll see an incredible artwork on the wall outside our new practice. See how many eyes you can find!    

Liz Muller

Principal Optometrist

Liz received her Optometry degree from the Queensland University of Technology in 1990. She has post-graduate training in behavioural optometry and vision therapy. This interest grew from wearing glasses as a child and participating in vision therapy aged 5 for a lazy eye. Liz completed the behavioural optometry component of the UNSW Masters of Optometry in 2002 and then completed fellowship of the Australasian college of behavioural optometry (ACBO). Liz provides full scope optometry care for glasses, contact lenses and eye health, and is also interested in managing myopia (shortsighted) progression. Liz is passionate about the changes that can occur by training the connection between the eyes and the brain. She has developed programs that work with vision problems impacting on reaching our full potential at school and life; including eye movement problems, convergence insufficiency, turned or lazy eye, and also children with special needs. Liz is also interested in working with adults who may have vision problems and adults with neurological conditions. You are never too young or too old to improve your vision.
