Ina-Marié is our hard contact lens manager and is responsible for our patient contact lens training, specializing in pediatric training and management. Her training specialities also include soft and rigid lenses (Scleral, Orthokeratology and Precision Contact Lenses).

After matriculating, she completed a diploma in Computer, Secretarial and Marketing at Northlink College. Thereafter her love for children motivated her to spend 5 years overseas as an au pair. During that time she completed a Child Growth and Development course in the USA.

Returning to South-Africa, Ina-Marié started her career with Charl Laäs Optometrist at reception and quickly added soft contact lens management and training to her portfolio. To date she has successfully completed the SAOA (South African Optometric Association) Optometric Assistants course, Ciba Vision’s Advanced Optical Assistants course and the Bausch&Lomb’s Contact Lens Marketing course.

Ina-Marié has a sincere love for children and copious amounts of patience, and that resulted in her becoming a very successful pediatric contact lens instructor. Every child (and parent) leaves Ina-Marié genuinely comfortable in the management of their contact lenses.
