Young Optometrists

Mission: Optometry + Career + Success

Young Optometrists (YO) was started in 2012 by a group of recently graduated young optometrists, Rebecca Li, Rajeev Naidu, Jack Phu, Chris Pooley, Carina Trinh and Megan Tu, who were all in their first year of practice and had graduated from UNSW the year before. YO was established to represent optometrists in their first decade of practice and address needs specific to young professionals finding their way in the optometric profession.
