Our Story

Having graduated together from the University of Melbourne in 1997, Steve Dinh from Melbourne and Quent Wain from Gippsland began practicing in their respective communities and maintained a close friendship ever since. Six years and a few beers later the two realized they shared the same vision:

“We wanted the freedom to put our patients’ health first, without compromise. So we decided to create a brand of eye care that could deliver that.”

Since the establishment of their Doncaster and Sale stores in 2003, the pair have opened 3 more practices in Epping, Wallan and Vermont South.

“We genuinely care about our people and their families and you can really feel that when you walk into any of our practices,” said Quent. “For us, it’s about providing personable, quality patient care and building lasting relationships so that our patients feel truly valued.”

My career in Optometry has fulfilled my passion for health care and my fascination with the intricacies of the eye. When I’m not practicing I sit on the Optometry Victoria board which gives me insight into the latest industry developments and affords me the opportunity to help shape the future of Optometry in Australia. I also have a love for keeping fit and I cycle, run and swim when I can.

From the age of 8, I experienced the benefits of vision correction first-hand. Getting contacts at 14 was life-changing for my social life as well as my sports life. I wanted the opportunity to facilitate this kind of transformation for others. Optometry aside, I love spending time with my two young sons and participating in Iron Man triathlons.

My father has a rare genetic eye disorder and has been legally blind since he was 30. I was always curious to understand the root cause of his condition and feel passionately about helping to treat all sorts of infections and injuries. When I’m not at the practice, you can find me at the local CrossFit gym in Sale (where I grew up), walking my dog Django or painting and renovating my house.

Seeing the world clearly for the first time was so rewarding. I knew then that I wanted to be the one to facilitate that “WOW” moment as an optometrist. Building relationships is really important to me so that when patients come back they’re not just seeing an optometrist, but also a friend that genuinely cares about them and their health. Optometry aside I’m a footy loving, success-starved Carlton supporter and try to get to as many games as possible.
