Kirily Bowen

Principal Optometrist / Director

With special interests in emergency eyecare, ocular disease and children’s vision, Kirily is currently multi-tasking as the practice frame buyer; an exercise in fashion, flair and spreadsheets. Joining us in 2000, Kirily has volunteered in Sri Lanka after the Boxing Day tsunami, and in between her role as clinical practice supervisor for the University of Melbourne she also manages regular speaking engagements.

Kirily is proud mum to Campbell, a lively and articulate school boy. In her spare time she also enjoys sewing, craft, music and theatre.
