Our Team

Sarah Tait Principal Optometrist

I have moved over from Auckland, New Zealand, where I studied Optometry at the University of Auckland and was awarded a Bachelor of Optometry with honours and therapeutic endorsement. I chose to work at Sure Optical as I wanted to work for an independent optometry practice that provided comprehensive vision care and put the needs of the patient first.

As a career Optometry is both challenging and rewarding, it is an exciting profession where improvements in vision care are continually being made. You not only have to understand the science behind the principles involved, you also require the skills to clearly and effectively communicate this information across to the patient. Most people regard vision as one of their most important senses, as an optometrist it's great to be able to directly influence and protect the health of something people value so highly. 

At Sure Optical I am surrounded by passionate staff members who clearly love coming to work everyday and create a supportive work environment. Working here I feel that I can make a difference in the community and raise awareness about eye health.

I am a member of the Optometrists Association Australia (OAA).

Wendy Penn Patient Care Manager / Qualified Optical Dispenser

As a mother of 5 children, I have a pretty good understanding of, and repour with children

I am Sure Eye Care’ slomgest serving employee after Amanda. I started at Sure Optical, Lisarow in May 2010

I love that we can help everyone who walks through our door

I have developed a passion for preventative eye care, both because my grandfather went blind from Macular Degeneration and due to working with Amanda – her passion and drive is infectious

I completed my Cert IV in Optical Dispensing at Tafe 2015

I am passionate about giving our patients the best vision solutions possible

My creative side ensures that I love finding beautiful and stylish frames for our practice and then individually matching the most perfect frames for each of our patients requiring glasses

I genuinely care for people, for the individual. Your story will sometimes bring tears to my eyes but I am okay with that. I am very much aware that each one of us has our own story, our own trials and tribulations. This is what makes us who we are as individuals. This also connects us to one another.

Empathy is my top strength, if you’re not happy, I’m not happy and I will do everything I can possibly do to make sure that your experience at SEC is an extremely positive and caring one, and that in the case of getting glasses, you will love them – both the style and vision.

I have done voluntary work as a breastfeeding counsellor and chaplaincy work in a hospital

I would love to see you and to serve you at Sure Eye Care (SEC)!

I LOVE to cook….on occasions you may even get to try some of my fare at SEC!

Chesney Walker Optometric Assistant

I have a strong work ethic and I want to give our patients the best possible experience when they are here at Sure Eye Care.

I strive to further my knowledge and I look forward to doing the Optical Dispenser course soon so I’ll be able to do and help more with patients.

I enjoy working in a professional and harmonious environment using our high tech equipment throughout appointments.

I personally think eye health is incredibly important and a lot of people aren’t aware of that, I hope by working here at Sure Eye Care that I can spread the word and inform people and patients about how important it is to have your eyes tested annually and care about eye health because we care about your eyes at Sure Eye Care!

I have a background in fashion retail so I believe that I can help you find the right frames to fit you as I will listen to what you like and what you want and assist you in making your decision and make it as easy and enjoyable as possible.

In my downtime I enjoy reading, walking my dog, watching movies and catching up with friends and family.

Jake Vernon-Elliot Optometric Assistant (Saturday mornings)

I am the newest member of the Sure Eye Care team, a keen and enthused year 11 student at Central Coast Grammar School. When I saw an advertisement for a job vacancy at Sure Eye Care I immediately felt a spark of interest for the position because I am working to achieve a gaol of studying Medicine.

As a member of my family, school and broader community my main goal as a person is to develop my understanding and knowledge of the people around me and the world. Having been involved in an international student exchange program to the USA, I have dedicated myself to maintain a positive attitude. I constantly remind myself that to achieve great things you are required to work hard and have the right attitude and is hence from where I have developed my strong positive headspace that has been recognised by my co-team members, peers, teachers and family.

I have developed a solid set of skills and work ethics within the workplace.
