Martin began his career wanting to follow the old adage “prevention is better than the cure”.


As such he divided his time between testing children in north Queensland and working with Dr Gary Brian, an ophthalmologist with the Fred Hollows Foundation, providing services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders living in Queensland. This enabled Martin to see first-hand how devastating life could be with a major loss of vision and underlined the necessity of regular, thorough eye examinations in the maintenance of healthy eyes and healthy sight.

Martin moved onto owning practices in central Queensland covering an area several times the size of Tasmania. In 2006 Martin sold these practices and he and his family moved to Hobart looking for a change in lifestyle. Martin says ‘it was the best move we ever made’. He is happily married to Natalie and a father to two teenage boys.

Originally situated in the Elizabeth Hope Priceline Pharmacy, Martin’s Eyecare has been operating at the current site since 2009 and remains one of only two completely independent practices in Southern Tasmania. Located in the heart of the Glenorchy shopping precinct, Martin’s Eyecare can be found in the Shiploads Building on Main Road with plenty of free parking nearby.
