About Tim Duffy

Tim graduated from UNSW in 1983 He commenced practising in Coonabarabran in 1984 and in 1985 opened the current practise in Gunnedah and has been servicing the district for 31 subsequent years. The Gunnedah practise has grown from one optometrist and one secretarial staff to its current 3 Optometrists, Lauren Jalkh, Alison Stuart and himself, 6 optical dispensers and 3 ancillary staff. In 2015, Tim purchased Richard Orr’s practise in Narrabri, another independent optometrist who has served his community for over 30 years. In this practice Tim now has 2 Optometrists practicing, Sebastian Egan and Debbie Baxter as well as 2 qualified optical dispensers and 3 office staff to continue and improve eye care for the Narrabri district. Tim was the first optometrist in the North West to complete his Ocular Therapeutics, and now co-manages and treats a vast array of eye disease and injuries in conjunction with local and metropolitan ophthalmologists. Tim maintains his enthusiasm for optometry by staying abreast of the incredible technological improvements, from the latest computerized imaging and scanning instrumentation, to the revolution of contact lens designs and materials, the increased sophistication of spectacle lens technology and the beauty and fashion of spectacle frames. The practise mantra is “total eyecare, quality eyewear”. He also enjoys passing on knowledge to University students. When not working, Tim spends his time chasing his 4 children with wife Katrina. He has just finished 15 years of coaching junior rugby and continues to keep fit with his involvement with cycling and triathlon.
