Did you know?  Baby's eyes are approximately 75% of adult size at birth. In fact it is the organ that most closely resembles its adult size! Baby's eyes have a "growth spurt" from birth to 12 months and then another one around puberty. They generally start at around 16.5mm and grow to approx 24mm.

We are very pleased to welcome Nicole Carter who took over from Wendy in August 2016 when Wendy went on maternity leave. Nicole graduated from the University of Sydney in 2012 with a Bachelor of Health Science and a Masters in Clinical Vision Science.  She received the Dean’s Scholar Award and Lance Jolly Orthoptics Prize for her academic and clinical achievements at university. In 2014 she presented at the Australian Orthoptic Conference and was awarded the Paediatric Orthoptic Award for her presentation on Ocular Motor Apraxia. Since February 2014, Nicole has worked as an Orthoptist at the Children’s Hospital at Westmead. She continues to work there part time. Nicole began working at the Children’s Eye Centre from August 2016. She works Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and runs the patching and exercise clinics. She is a member of Orthoptics Australia and is registered on the Australian Orthoptic Board.

Nicole joined us in August to
take over from Wendy.


Wendy and her husband Samuel welcomed their first child, daughter Chloe, into the world on 11/09/16. We're sure you'll agree she is a cutie! Wendy is suffering from the usual sleep deprivation but all are doing well. Wendy will be returning part time in 2017.


Welcome to the world Chloe!
