Matt Kowalski

Principal Optometrist

Matt grew up in Brisbane and completed his Optometry degree at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in 2008, graduating with first class honours. He undertook further education in 2012 allowing him to prescribe pharmaceutical eye drops, completing his certificate in Ocular Therapeutics, also at QUT. He has since worked at several optometry practices across Southeast Queensland, and has recently returned from a two-year role in New Zealand.

He has a particular interest in helping patients explore all facets of contact lens wear, from the simple to the complicated. He also enjoys keeping up with the latest technology in optometry, from new spectacle lenses to the best equipment to help diagnose eye disease. He prides himself on providing a calm environment for his patients, getting to know them (not just their eyes), and taking the time to explain all of the information they might need clearly and completely.

Matt has fond memories of family holidays in the 90s at Alex heads, Maroochy and Maleny, and is looking forward to now calling the Sunshine Coast home. He enjoys hiking, football/soccer, kayaking and beach walks with his wife Louise (also an optometrist) and their puppy.
