Peter S. Dick
About Me and My Practice
I gained my Bachelor of Optometry in 1986, following in the footsteps of my father, grandfather, and great-grandfather in the Optometry field.
After graduating, I worked in Christchurch for two years for a practice which specialized in children with reading disabilities. Following this, I gained experience working in Australia and the United Kingdom before returning to New Zealand and joining my father's practice in 1991.
I continue to work alongside my father in our Moray Place practice, Visique Peter Dick Optometrists. Our practice also extends to Mosgiel, where I regularly meet with clients at our Optometry rooms on Glasgow Street.
We particularly specialize in contact lenses but also have a wide selection of frames, sunglasses, and eye care essentials.
