Judi Coey Optometry is a family owned boutique practice nestled in the Maleny Hinterland. We bulk bill all of our comprehensive eye examinations! Our practice is completely independent, so does not belong to any buying groups or chains. This enables us to provide our patients with tailored options to suit their individual needs, free from any bias.

Judi graduated from QUT in 1989 with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Optometry. She started her career in Central Queensland with her husband Ken, servicing Mackay and the surrounding mining towns. In 2002 the Coey’s sold up everything to live on a catamaran and sail the east coast of Australia with their three children. Judi managed to work as a locum optometrist between sailing, schooling the two eldest children and changing nappies.
In 2006, the family bought a 50-acre property in Maleny where they started up a cattle farm called Maleny Wagyu. Since establishing herself here, Judi has spent the last 10 years working as an optometrist in Maleny as well as immersing herself in local book clubs, the Maleny Business Network Group, the chaplaincy committee and previously the P&C committee at Maleny State High School.
Judi is a member of the Optical Association of Australia and is strongly committed to continuing education and attends a number of courses each year in addition to many training modules. Judi’s particular interests in optometry are in eye health, pathology, paediatric vision care and low vision.
Outside of optometry Judi loves sailing with family and friends when she gets the chance. She also enjoys skiing (although she is still perfecting her skills) and traveling. Other interests of hers include keeping fit, exploring the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and catching up with family and friends.
Recently Judi completed the Ocular Therapeutics course through the Australian College of Optometry in Melbourne. This has enabled her to treat and manage eye diseases such as glaucoma, conjunctivitis, herpes keratitis and many more.
