About Ian Donald Optometrist

Founded by a legend

Our practice was founded in 1957 by Wallaby legend Rob Heming. Rob’s passion for his patients was the reason he gave up his international rugby career, and that passion continues today.

Ian Donald joined the practice in 1983 as a teenager, and was mentored by the rugby great.

‘Rob positioned his practice around clinical excellence in eye health. He wanted the best of everything for his patients, and ensured his equipment was state of the art.’

‘He is also the nicest gentleman you could ever meet. A real Manly personality.’
