Team Top Tip….
W.O.F for your Spectacles!
Your car needs a regular warrant of fitness. You wouldn’t expect your car to last long if you didn’t get the mechanic to check the nuts and bolts? So don’t put up with your specs ‘hanging’ off your nose or waiting for that temple (arm) to fall off over the long weekend ( Murphy’s Law!). Come in and see the friendly team at Te Awamutu Eye Care for your spectacle W.O.F. No appointment is necessary!
Bevan Young- Optometrist
Bevan was born in Napier and grew up in a family of 5 boys. He was keen on sport, playing most nights of the week, and has kept up with tennis, table tennis, badminton, and volleyball. After completing his optometry degree at the University of Auckland in 1997, he worked in Paraparaumu for 3 years, followed by a year in Wellington City.
With a keen interest in travelling, he went to London and enjoyed travelling Europe for a couple of years. He returned to Auckland, where he met his wife and completed the optometry Post-Graduate course in Therapeutics. This course was aimed at advancing optometry knowledge in eye diseases and the prescribing eye medications to treat common eye diseases and conditions.
“In the time I have been practising, I have seen a significant shift in the profession that has advanced us technologically and professionally. There is so much more we can do now, that was not available when I graduated in the late 1990s. It makes for exciting times. I love working with and for the people we see at Te Awamutu Eye Care.
