Hello. I am Sallyanne Morrison, the Director and Principal Optometrist of Morrison's Family Eye Care Centre.
After gaining my Bachelor of Optometry degree from the University of NSW with Honours, I worked for a few years in a Paediatric Eye Clinic in Perth Western Australia. Being born, bred and educated in Dubbo, the lure to return to NSW, and be closer to my family was too great. In 1992 I started my own Eye Clinic in Dubbo, where I have been in providing eye tests ever since and I still love what I do.
My professional Optometric interests are in prescribing and problem solving all the issues associated with contact lens wear. I also really enjoy assessing and treating children's vision problems. During 2009 I stared my Post Graduate Diploma in Ocular Therapeutics. The course will allow me to not only diagnose, but to treat anterior eye conditions such as conjunctivitis, removal of foreign bodies and objects from eyes, corneal ulcers and in-growing eye lashes.
Outside of work I have a keen interest in rural business, rural health and rural cultural development. In the past I have held director's positions and Vice Chairman's roles on the Board of The Dubbo City Development Corporation. I am also the Australian Optometrists Association's Central West Media Liaison Officer.
In my spare time I keenly enjoy trying to keep active with a walk. I spend most of my time 'taxi-ing' my children to their various sports; I enjoy spending quiet time around our home with my family and our menagerie of pets. They keep me grounded and young at heart.
