BSc(Hons) BOptom Grad.Cert.Oc.Ther

Peter graduated in 2002 with a Bachelor of Science (Hons) and Optometry from the University of Melbourne and completed his Certificate of Ocular Therapeutics in 2004.  He is the owner and principal optometrist of Pezzimenti Nixon Optometrists.  Prior to joining Pezzimenti Nixon Optometrists in 2013, he was the Lead Optometrist of Children’s Services at the Australian College of Optometry. Peter has a strong interest in children’s vision, development and welfare.

He has managed projects working with disadvantaged primary school children as well as students from a specialised deaf school. He also has extensive experience in contact lens fitting, in particular, for keratoconus, corneal grafts and aphakic children.

Peter volunteers as an optometrist in Nepal with Rotary International every year, working in remote villages under the shadow of the Himalayan Mountains. He also enjoys cycling, kayaking, hiking, swimming and running, but as a father of two small boys, he doesn’t get out there as much as he once did. Peter finds working with people of all ages to be a fun and enjoyable experience, with enormous satisfaction achieved when vision improvement is found. He strives for excellence and a holistic approach to optometry practice.
