In July 1990 Shane purchased Woonona Optical and Hearing which later became known as Woonona Economy Specs and eventually in its present location as Woonona Eyecare. Over the last 36 years Shane has developed a deep understanding of the technical side of Optical Dispensing, particularly the dispensing of Multi-Focal lenses, he has also designed and imported sunglasses for flying, safety glasses for shooting and to this day still creates one off “special” lenses for shooters.
Being an avid sports fan but not particularly good at any of them, Shane does have a great appreciation for the visual requirements of various sports especially cycling and motorcycling. Currently Shane is completing a degree in Psychology with a focus on the cognitive and visual needs of children, this will complement the behavioural optometry that the practice has a special interest in.
