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!
Melissa graduated from Latrobe university with a Bachelor of Arts and diploma of Education. She was a primary school teacher for 12 years. Melissa is an accredited vision therapist with ACBO. Melissa is excited about the process of vision therapy and the changes that she sees in her young charges. Her knowledge of training, child development, and the visual system all help with the positive outcomes in our vision therapy programs.
Melissa has 3 young, very energetic sons, one with a lazy eye who she is currently putting through the vision therapy program. She is a strong part of her community in Point Cook and is actively involved in fundraising at her children’s school. In her spare time, Melissa enjoys Friday night movies with her boys, jigsaw puzzles and family adventures.
Mariah is our youngest member of staff and is really enjoying learning all there is to know about eyewear. She especially knows what our more grown up kids like to wear in glasses. Mariah loves being with her friends and helping her mum in her business too.
