Lee Pepper, optometrist and orthokeratologist graduated with honours from the University of NSW and has been registered to practice optometry for over 30 years. He has extensive experience in primary eye care in the Hills District and has particular interest in the prevention of blindness in adult and elderly patients as well as inhibiting the development of myopia in children. Orthokeratology is one of his particular specialties.
Lee has served as a clinical supervisor of budding optometrists at UNSW and has lectured part-time in spectacle lens design and patient communication. He has been awarded prizes in clinical optometry and contact lens practice and has been involved in research in multifocal spectacles and contact lenses.
Time spent working as a consultant optometrist in clinical instrumentation has allowed him to focus on developing equipment that caters to the needs of practising optometrists and their patients. Lee put this knowledge into practice when setting up Vision Excellence, establishing a centre in the Hills District providing a high standard of optometric care.
Living in the Hills District, Lee has three sons and has always had a strong involvement in football and futsal (indoor soccer) as a player, coach and administrator. He had played in the Hills District and for UNSW and is a keen fan and tragic of the Arsenal Football Club.
