MEET THE TEAM

KEITH MILLER

OPTOMETRIST 

Keith qualified in Optometry in 1982 at Auckland University and spent the next five years working in New Zealand, Australia,  and the United Kingdom.

Settling in Tauranga, he developed an interest in preventing and improving vision problems, rather than purely compensating for poor sight. He is one of the few New Zealand graduates from the Optometric Extension Program Foundation (OEPF) Clinical Curriculum in Behavioural Optometry. This specialisation in all areas of vision has led to Visique Greerton becoming a referral centre for all aspects of learning-related vision problems. Our patients benefit from a unique skill set to solve vision problems which is unavailable elsewhere in Tauranga. Away from work, Keith is a volunteer lifeguard at Papamoa Surf Life Saving Club and stays fit running and open water swimming. 

BRENTON CLARK

OPTOMETRIST 

 

Brenton graduated from Auckland University with a Science Degree in 1989 and his Optometry Degree in 1992. 

He worked in Nelson and Queensland (with locumships around New Zealand and Australia) before returning to New Zealand and settling in Tauranga in 1997. An interest in children's vision led him to embark on postgraduate training at the University of New South Wales where he completed a Graduate Certificate in 2007. He has also completed the OEPF Clinical Curriculum in Behavioural Optometry, and is a member of the Australian College of Behavioural Optometry (ACBO) and the Neuro-optometric Rehabilitation Association (NORA). Outside of work, Brenton enjoys reading, cooking, growing edibles and armchair cricket, with activities such as running, geocaching, Bokwa and biking keep him active.

TONY SIMPSON

DISPENSING OPTICIAN 

Tony worked with Dollond and Aitchison (one of the UK's biggest optometrists) for 32 years before moving with his family to Tauranga in 2008.

At Dollond and Aitchison he worked in a number of roles including as a full time contact lens optician, branch management and regional management. Tony is married with two sons and two granddaughters. Tony is a big sport fan, mostly cricket, golf, rugby and motor sport. During summer you can find him umpiring local cricket matches for Bay of Plenty Premier Cricket. He also enjoys getting out and walking his dog and takes every chance he gets to go flying in his friend's gyrocopter! He's rather fond of red wine, blue cheese and pizza straight from his very own wood fired pizza oven. When it comes to his job, Tony is passionate about finding the perfect eyewear for every client and enjoys having such a wide range of great quality products to choose from at Visique. "It's amazing seeing a child with poor sight react to a whole new world of vision when they put their glasses on for the first time", says Tony. 

SUSAN

DISPENSING OPTICIAN

 

Susan is one of our Dispensing Opticians who will help you find the perfect pair of glasses.

 

Originally from Gisborne, Susan and her family relocated to the beautiful Bay of Plenty on 2005. She qualified as a Dispensing Optician in 2001, and has since discovered the joy in working with young children, especially when they put on a new pair of glasses and realise they can now see things they couldn't before. Outside of work you'll find Susan dining out, photographing newborns and spending time with friends and family - she just loves snapping photos of her three beautiful grandchildren. If you're going to bribe Susan, white chocolate will get you a long way! 

SALLY

OPTICAL ASSISTANT / RECEPTIONIST

 

Sally is another smiling face you'll see on reception here at Visique.

 

Sally has been living in the Bay and working as an Optical Assistant and Receptionist for the past 14 years. She has a passion for travelling, trying new wines (she particularly loves a good Pinot Gris) and is a bit of a foodie so enjoys testing out new restaurants with intriguing menus. Sally also loves gardening, getting outdoors for walks and spending time with her grandchildren. Her three chickens and two rather high maintenance Birman cats also keep her well occupied! When it comes to her job, Sally really loves meeting all our lovely patients and enjoys seeing the difference we make in people's lives with the use of Optometry.
