Peter Stewart OAM, BSc (Syd), B Optom (UNSW).
I have been practicing since 1983, having graduated from the University of New South Wales with a Batchelor of Optometry. I also hold a Batchelor of Science from Sydney University (1979) majoring in Pharmacolgy and Physiology.
I have been practicing in Kew (High On Vision) for 23 years having previously owned country consulting practices in Victoria and my own practice in Sydney. It was a great honour to be awarded an OAM on the Queen’s birthday weekend in 2014 for “Services to the international community in the provision of eye health programs”
I was a member of a regular team that went to East Timor starting in 2006 for 7 years as part of the East Timor Eye Program (ETEP) I am a co-founder of the Sumba Eye Program (SEP) which was founded in 2007, training local nurses, and providing eyecare to people of the Island of Sumba, Indonesia. I was also awarded the “Chairmans award” from Optometry Giving Sight in 2013.
I am married with 3 daughters, living in and having schooled them within the local community. I have been a member of the Kew Rotary Club for 20 years. I have been active in many sports including Rugby Union, Squash, Sailing (9 Sydney Hobarts), Cricket and golf.
High On Vision was established in Kew after deciding to put roots down within the local community. Most of my staff have been local over the years and I have been privileged to have had and still do, wonderful people who have made the practice what it is. All of them have been patient focused, getting to know them and look after their needs.
