Dr Renee Bridges

“Optometry is a dynamic and challenging profession, and there is nothing more rewarding than making a difference to people’s vision.”

Renee Bridges completed a six month placement with Woonona Eyecare in 2014 during this time Renee impressed not only us, but our patients so much that our senior Optometrist Dirk den Dulk offered Renee a position on completion of her studies. Renee felt so much at home here with us, that in December of 2017 she purchased the Optometric side of Woonona Eyecare From Dirk.

Renee is a Wollongong local, and completed a degree in Biotechnology with Honours at the University of Wollongong. Having completed her degree Renee then went on to work for the Garvan Institute in the area of pancreatic cancer research. While a very important and rewarding career Renee always had a desire to pursue further studies.

Renee applied for and was accepted in to a Bachelor of Vision Science at Deakin University in 2011 and then went on to complete her Masters of Optometry in 2015.

Renee’s passion for Optometry is evident, with a special interest in primary eyecare (The diagnosis of ocular conditions), soft contact lenses, Orthokeratology, and children’s vision. When asked why Renee chose optometry, Renee said “Optometry is a dynamic and challenging profession, and there is nothing more rewarding than making a difference to people’s vision”

Yet again the team at woonona eye care have excelled with everything. Great service and great products. Thanks to Shane and the entire team.

I have been Shane's customer forever! (more than 20yrs) Shane goes out of his way to make sure that his clients only get the best -the best service, the best product and at the best possible price. 5 out of 6 members in our household wear specs, and we are all lifelong clients of Shane. Highly recommend Woonona Eye care to everyone!

Exceptional customer service. It was all about what was best for me at this current time. Once my eye sight has settled I will be back to get a new script and glasses. Thanks again Shane & Renee I can now comfortably go outside and not get an instant headache.
