Richard Watt


Hi. I’m Richard. I grew up in Brisbane and graduated optometry in 1981. I’ve lived and worked in Rockhampton, Emerald and Moree. I moved to Hervey Bay and established my practice in 1989. My special interests in optometry include childrens’ vision, diagnosing and co-managing eye disease with ophthalmologists, contact lenses and helping people with low vision who have lost their vision as a result of eye disease. For me, Honest, Friendly, Professional is not just a business catch phrase but a way of life.

Life outside of the optometry practice is rather full with my time divided between our rather large family, Rotary, and Church. If I had more time, we’d also going sailing on our catamaran which is hidden under a layer of dust in the shed.
