Dr 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.

Dr Wala Shehnah

Wala completed her Bachelor of Biomedicine and Doctor of Optometry at the University of Melbourne. She has an interest in paediatric optometry, myopia control and anterior eye disease.

Wala pursued optometry because she is passionate about enabling people to have the best possible vision and eye health in order to improve their quality of life. She has performed a range of volunteer work over the past years including at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, for which she has received the Inspiring Doctor of Optometry Award.

In her free time, Wala enjoys hiking and baking. Having moved to the Western suburbs after a lifetime up north, she gladly welcomes any recommendations for the best coffee in the area.

Dr Amber Smith
Dr Amber Smith
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.
