Amelia Na Jiao
Amelia has been practicing for several years prior to joining us at Leverett and Kindler in 2018. She was inspired to be an optometrist because of her interest in medicine and health care. Her philosophy of practice is looking at vision problems holistically. In addition to addressing the presenting visual needs of the patient, she looks to also investigate why and how these visual problems developed and offer advice on any indicated prevention.
Amelia has a special interest in children’s vision and learning related vision problems, as well as neuro-optometric rehabilitation for patients with visual symptoms of concussion, whiplash, stroke, head injury, visual snow and neurological conditions, collectively known as acquired brain injury (ABI). She has done extensive postgraduate studies in this area including a Master of Optometry from University of New South Wales and Vision Therapy Courses. Amelia has pursued research and was involved in a pilot study investigating the use of virtual reality in vision therapy. She has had experience in advanced treatment for dry eyes and fitting orthokeratology lenses.
Outside work, Amelia enjoys cooking for her family and catching up with her friends.
