Daniel Farrugia
Principal Optometrist
BSc Optometry, Therapeutically endorsed

I’m the co-founder of Insight Vision Care. I’m a behavioural Optometrist and have completed extensive training in children’s vision and the treatment of visual dysfunctions and visual processing issues that can present as learning difficulties; advanced contact lens fitting, such as multifocals and ortho-K lenses and I’m therapeutically endorsed allowing me to prescribe a range of eye drops for eye disease.

I’ve been wearing glasses since I was 5 years old and remember putting on my first pair and being able to see the leaves on trees! Since then I’ve always wanted to be an Optometrist and I feel it’s an honour to be able to do that for other people.

I live locally with my wife and 2 sons, and my dogs, Barney and Shadow.

BVSc, MOptom.

I completed my Bachelor of Vision Science and Masters of Optometry at Deakin University in Geelong and have an interest in children’s vision, myopia control & contact lenses.

I was born & raised in Werribee and love being a part of this diverse community. I first started at Insight Vision Care as an optical dispenser while I completed my Optometry degree. I decided to become an Optometrist because I love getting to know people and being able to help them.

Outside of Optometry, I enjoy playing netball and spending time in the outdoors.  I continue to live locally with my partner Adam, daughter Elsie & fur baby Mozzie.
