Zahn qualified as an Optometrist at the Behavioral School of Optometry, Rand Afrikaans University in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1990. She has practiced as an optometrist in South Africa, Zimbabwe, and New Zealand. She started her career in Australia in Albury, NSW.
Zahn and her family moved to the Sunshine Coast in 2009, when she took over ownership of Optikus Optometrists and has settled into the community offering a wide range of experience and knowledge.
Zahn’s training in behavioral optometry has molded her passion for her patient’s visual and ocular health needs. She has a holistic approach to vision care and is a strong believer in staying on top of the latest information and technology. She finds the multi-faceted industry of optometry exhilarating and as an owner-optometrist has the opportunity to be involved in all of them. There is no time to be bored in optometry!
Her favorite cup of tea is a Spiced Chai.
Her favorite pastimes are baking, cooking, and gardening – especially her orchids and veggies.
Her favorite meal is either ‘pap & wors’ or a Nando’s take away when she is too tired to prepare a meal.
Her wish is for cheaper optometric equipment and a speedy release of the next season of ‘The Witcher’.
