Brett Jenkinson

Everton Park (Brisbane) and Maroochydore.

Brett completed his Bachelor of Optometry degree at Melbourne University, graduating in 2001. His first job was with Laubman & Pank Optometrists in Kingaroy. While there, he met his wife, Carmen. They were married in 2004 and moved to Hobart for a fresh start in 2006. In Hobart, Brett became the youngest partner of the largest locally-owned Optometry group, Total Eyecare. He took an active role in the Optometry Association and became Tasmanian President in 2012. Also while in Hobart, Brett became a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry and completed his Graduate Certificate in Ocular Therapeutics, allowing him to prescribe optical medicines. In November 2017 Brett was appointed to the Board of Directors of ProVision, a national member organisation supporting over 400 independent optometrists. During his almost 20 year career, Brett has developed a keen interest in contact lenses, orthokeratology (overnight contact lenses for short-sightedness that allow lens-free daytime vision) and in particular found a challenge in complex cornea and contact lens fitting. With their two children, Sean and Amelia, Brett and Carmen return home to Brisbane in June 2017 to build upon the success of Kay and David Webster’s long-running practice.
