Hello! My name is Louisa and I’m currently a 4th year optometry student. I look forward to meeting you and I hope that you will have a great time at university!
My past work experience related to optometry was an optical assistant at Specsavers, and at an independent optometry store. Currently, I’m a lens cleaner at Oscar Wylee, ensuring the display frames are free of fingerprints.
My hobbies include reading, drawing and finding images of cute or funny dogs on social media, especially shiba inu’s. I like to play indoor sports such as badminton, when I have the spare time.

My name is Aaron Tse, and I am a Vision Science/Optometry student progressing into my 4th year at UNSW. As a passionate optometry student, I aim to extend my academic abilities by currently working in the optometric workforce as an optical dispenser, tending to the visual needs of patients requiring eyecare services. As university can be a rewarding yet challenging experience at times, I also aim to maintain a balanced lifestyle by actively involving myself in sports such as swimming and tennis, as well as committing to weekly activities at my local church.
As a peer mentor, I hope to enlighten students’ understanding of the optometry profession and the privilege of having the opportunity to study a prestigious degree at one of the leading universities in the world.
