A Warm Welcome to Wellness Eyecare - Network Prospect

A Warm Welcome to Wellness Eyecare

 

Wellness Eyecare was founded in 2018 by husband and wife team , Lisa and Justyn Ho. Feeling uninspired by corporate organisations and retail, the couple have come together to fill the gaps that they could see in the eye care industry. Wellness Eyecare believes in ethical, durable, accessible eye wear and eye care that  feels good. Being meticulous by nature, the couple aim to provide attention to detail with old school quality service and a kind heart. To introduce Wellness Eyecare to the City of Prospect business community, we visited the new store to find out more.

Meet the owners:

  • Lisa Ho
    Director and Optometrist

Since 2007, Lisa has worked as an optometrist across regional and metropolitan South Australia, in both corporate and private practices. She spent much of this time in a specialty contact lens practice, and also facilitated the development of the Optometry Flinders course, acting as a guest lecturer, PBL tutor and clinical supervisor for many years. She was a key Optometrist in the establishment and design of screening and registration protocols for Cambodia Vision charity trips, helping to screen and treat close to 5000 locals in her time in Cambodia. Recently she was a fundamental partner in the development of electronic software for future screenings. Since 2014, Lisa has been the State President of the Cornea and Contact Lens Society of Australia, working with other industry members to raise funds for research, increase broader awareness and education around contact lenses, and to promote better relationships across the eye care industry.

Lisa believes in preventative eye care, and prefers to take a holistic approach to her work. She is often described as very thorough and caring by her patients, known to explain issues clearly. Her special interests include contact lenses, eye health and treatment. Born in Australia, Lisa speaks fluent Teo Chiu and basic Mandarin and Cantonese. Lisa enjoys animals and gardens of all shapes and sizes.

  • Justyn Ho
    Director and Mechanical Engineer

Justyn has worked as a mechanical engineer since 2008, in various areas including stainless steel, R&D and safety standard testing. Being married to an Optometrist, Justyn has attended his fair share of worldwide conferences and optical exhibitions, as well as volunteering with Lisa for Cambodia Vision, helping to screen the eye pressures of up to 5000 local Cambodians. Becoming disillusioned in the corporate environment, he decided to make a sea change and put his skills to use in an area where he can have a direct impact on people’s wellbeing. Known for his attention to detail and fine handywork, Justyn is experienced in soldering and has a broad knowledge of different frame materials and their mechanical designs. Being quite shortsighted, he has also worn spectacles for most of his life, and therefore shares most of the common frustrations of other people needing glasses. Born in Malaysia, Justyn speaks fluent Malay, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Hokkien. He likes a big bowl of vegetarian curry or char kue teow.
