Thank you Tom!

August 3, 2023


Tom Cheers


After 20 years of dedicated and professional service to Ezekiel Eyes, our terrific Optical Dispenser and Technician Tom Gordon has retired.

I am sure there are many of you who have had the privilege of Tom’s service.

In particular, Tom had amazing skills in resurrecting patients’ damaged frames.

Some of these frames had been sat on, stepped on, destroyed by children/grandchildren or lovingly chewed by dogs.

I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge Tom’s incredible commitment to our team and to our patients, and wish him all the best in his retirement!

Rhiannon has a Masters from the Queensland University of Technology and has worked in various roles in Queensland and Western Australia.

She has settled in to Ezekiel Eyes very well and is quickly learning our different processes and systems.

As well as finding motivation in knowing her patients have received the best care possible, Rhiannon is particularly experienced in the examination of children’s visual systems and is undertaking the fitting of all our various contact lenses.

Optometrist Rhiannon Richer

Rhiannon enjoys a challenge and a laugh. This has led her into various roles with a drive to expand her clinical skills, including working for multiple Ophthalmologists in Brisbane as a student, and in Perth as a graduate.

This ambition to learn led her to contract work where she worked for numerous clinics around regional Western Australia.

She brings this drive to Ezekiel Eyes and is excited to meet you.

When not at work, you’ll find Rhiannon learning a new skill, on her boat, camping or with her nose in a good book.

I know you will join me in making Rhiannon welcome.
