MEET Maria Norris
An Honours graduate of UNSW’s Optometry program with over 30 years experience in independent optometry, Maria practices a broad scope of optometry and has a special interest in ocular disease and therapeutics, having completed her postgraduate Ocular Therapeutics qualification in 2017. She is also a member of the Contact Lens Society of Australia.
Maria practiced in both Australia and the UK in busy metropolitan optometry and ophthalmology practices before ‘settling’ in Concord in 2013.
“As an independent practice owner, I love that I’m able to offer my patients ‘the complete package’ – high quality clinical care, great vision and fabulous fashion eyewear.”
Maria loves Italian language and culture and in the distant past, she enjoyed a twirl around the ballroom dance floor. These days, it’s the less frenetic pursuits of a good film or book or a new theatre production.
MEET Sarah Fayle
Optical dispenser Sarah is the backbone of the business and completed her Optical Dispensing Certificate with Distinction at TAFE in 1999.
She has been assisting the people of Concord since 1997 when her optometrist friend, Elizabeth Wilson set up a practice here and insisted that Sarah join her. Sarah’s fabulous eye for detail together with her superb skills as a ‘fixer’ of things means that not only can she style and fit your eyewear perfectly – she can also tackle complicated repairs and those ‘dog ate my glasses’ moments.
Sarah has an incredible memory and will most likely greet you by name when you walk in the door even if she hasn’t seen you in years! In her downtime, she likes to play the piano, loves art and antiques and enjoys attending a variety of musical performances. She is unashamedly Elvis Presley’s greatest fan!
