Presenters

Jason Holland
Jason graduated from Queensland University of Technology’s School of Optometry in 1994 with honours. He spent the first 6 years of his career as a locum Optometrist for the Optical Superstore in practices throughout Australia. In 2000, he began working with Dr Andrew Apel, a leading Brisbane Ophthalmologist who specializes in the anterior segment. Jason was the founder in 2006 of a clinic specialising in Dry Eye treatment and Glaucoma co-management. The clinic is the pinnacle of Dry Eye management in Australia using advanced technology and leading practice protocols. In 2002, Jason’s role at The Optical Superstore advanced to the point where he now manages the Optometrists for 60 Optical Superstores nationally. He frequently recruits newly graduated optometrists to join his team of over 90 Optometrists. Optometry Australia represents Optometrists in Australia. Jason was elected as a Director in Queensland in 2008 to later become the treasurer in 2013. He was also nominated to represent Qld on the National Optometry board in 2014 - 2017. In 2011, Jason was invited to be on Deakin University’s Advisory Board when they were developing the Optometry program. He gave advice on key issues such as clinical placements, and industry expectations. He frequently lectures across Australia and in South East Asia.
Assoc. Prof. Mei-Ling Tay-Kearney

She has held various positions including Head of Department at Royal Perth Hospital, RACE examiner and QEC Chair responsible for the ophthalmological training program in WA. She is very active in the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmology and is presently a Selection Board member, Training Progression Committee member and a Training Hospital Inspector. She is also a member of The MAC at RPH and is part of the LEI’s Clinical Leadership Committee. She consults at RPH and the LEI and is active in Clinical Trials, focused on new drug treatments for infectious and non-infectious ocular inflammation and continues to participate in tele-ophthalmology research.
Leigh Plowman
Leigh Plowman believes that dry eyes shouldn’t affect people’s quality of life or doing what they love. Leigh studied Optometry at University of Melbourne. He also did a clinical externship at Illinois College of Optometry. Leigh is a current Clinical Residential Placement Host for Deakin University Optometry Students. Leigh is a Key Opinion Leader (KOL) for Oculus Asia. He is a consultant for Lumenis Australia.
Jason Teh
Jason Teh is a member of the Optometry Australia Association and has been practicing Optometry for more than 19 years.  He started up a myopia management clinic more than 10 years ago and his uncompromising passion for eye care also led to him setting up one of the earliest dry eye clinics in Melbourne. Jason recognised that the next major threat to eye health comes in the form of tear film dysfunction, and he now runs a busy Dry Eye Group out of 3 locations with his team of passionate Optometrists.
