A New Optometrist/Orthokeratologist
This February we welcomed Optometrist/Orthokeratologist, Shonit Jagmohan to the Envision Optical team.
Shonit is one of the leading Orthokeratologists in Australia, fitting a wide scope of Orthokeratology including short-sighted, long-sighted, astigmatism and vision for over 40 years old. He is passionate about Orthokeratology and contact lens fitting, with his specialty in myopia control which slows children and young adults progression of short-sightedness and need for stronger glasses. Shonit has extensive knowledge in rigid and scleral contact lens fittings of keratoconus and post-graft corneas.
Having worked at a leading specialty contact lens practice in Adelaide, Shonit has built a reputation for achieving excellent vision results, receives regular referrals from health care professionals and comes highly recommended by current patients.
Shonit’s passion for optometry and contact lenses started in New Zealand. He graduated from the University of Auckland in 2008, excelling with honours and received a scholarship to work at a renowned contact lens practice in Wellington.
Since moving to Australia in 2011, Shonit furthered his experience not only in contact lenses, but also in dry eye and ocular disease management. For 2 years, he was the primary health consultant for managing eye related disease in rural areas throughout the country.
As part of Shonit’s commitment to empowering optometrists to offer contact lenses as an alternative treatment to vision correction, he was on the national board, and the South Australian president, of the Cornea & Contact Lens Society of Australia in 2012 and 2013. He brings this commitment, and his true passion for giving people the gift of excellent vision, to Envision Optical.
Shonit is excited about fitting a whole range of patients with Ortho-K, and proving them with vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses. He is happy he is part of a team dedicated to providing the best quality of service with access to the full range of technology available for the most comprehensive eye examinations for patients.
Outside of work, Shonit likes to keep active and keeps busy by doing activities such as working out, playing soccer, snowboarding and he says he is definitely a water baby! Shonit also likes to play the guitar and travel the world, having spent periods of time living and travelling overseas.
