Dr Ellen Zhang - Optometrist

Dr Ellen Zhang is an optometrist with a strong interest in anterior eye, myopia control, contact lenses and ocular disease management.

Ellen graduated from Optometry at Deakin with distinctions. She has completed clinical training in various metro and rural locations including the Australian College of Optometry, Barwon Health, Lorne Community Hospital, Specsavers and various primary schools doing vision screenings. 

 

Ellen has a passion for patient education and is helping patients learn more about their eye health and the importance of regular eye tests. She actively attends different optometry conferences around Australia throughout the year to ensure she is updated with the best evidence to manage her patients. 

When she isn't testing eyes, Ellen loves to bake various desserts (which she brings in to the team) or laze around with her head stuck in a good novel. She also has two rescue cats called Miko and Haru and a love bird called Tobi, who all cause a lot of mischief and mayhem at home.
