Jane Duffy

Optometrist – BSc(Optom) GradCertOcTher

I’m loving working with the Dresden team in Fitzroy and Brunswick, right where I live. I’ve been an optometrist for over 25 years, and have done postgraduate studies in ocular therapeutics and further training in children’s visual function. My special interests are the early detection of eye diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration – it can make such a difference for people. I’ve served on the Optometry Board of Australia and was pretty chuffed to receive an Order of Australia medal in 2014 for my contributions to the optometry profession.

Sue Schulzer

Optometrist – BScOptom CertOcTher

It’s been 25 years since I began practising optometry in Melbourne, and I’ve worked in both corporate and private practices over that time. I’ve owned and operated an optometry store too, so it’s been really interesting joining Dresden, which does things so differently to everyone else – especially the making we do in store. My particular interests include detection of eye disease, diabetes and paediatrics, and I’m currently doing postgraduate study in ocular therapeutics.

Zenia Jaitley

Optometrist – BOptom(Hons) TPA qualified

I’ve been full-time at the Smith St store since we first opened our doors to Fitzroy customers and wider Melbourne. I’m a therapeutically endorsed optometrist and have previously worked in private and corporate practices in New Zealand and Australia. I enjoy the clinical side of things. Areas that especially interest me include contact lenses and dry eye disease. I’ve collaborated on some interesting research into warm compress treatment for meibomian gland dysfunction, which has been published in two international optometry and vision science journals.
