Deakin Optometry Faculty New Appointments

Deakin Optometry has announced two more members of its faculty, with the dual appointments of Sean Martin and Steve Maskell in the role of Ophthalmic and Retail Optical Coordinator.

Mr. Martin trained with, and worked at OPSM until 1984 before taking on an eyewear franchise, then developing a well-known Melbourne boutique, Eyewear on Collins. He has also held positions with Luxottica and with lens giant, Essilor.

The University said Mr. Maskel was an experienced optical dispenser, who was instrumental in the modernisation of RMIT’s Certificate IV in Optical Dispensing, adapting it to the needs of both consumers and employers. He is the owner of the Victorian Eyecare Network, which has met the spectacle requirements of the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital for the past 15 years.

Deakin University said both men are passionate, energetic communicators. Through a series of workshops, lectures, symposia and site-visits, they will provide students with authentic, detailed, real-world exposure to ophthalmic and retail optics, the university said.
