Danielle Winstone (née Ross)
From September 25th 2020, Danielle will begin maternity leave, returning to the Wanaka clinic in mid-2021 and to the Queenstown clinic in late 2021.
Danielle is an optometrist with a comprehensive skill-set and a strong background in paediatric eye care. With extensive experience in the medical management of myopia, infantile aphakia, orthokeratology and contact lenses - Danielle’s passion lies within a niche speciality known as Behavioural Optometry, which enables the treatment of developmental delays and learning difficulties by looking at how the brain processes what eyes can see. Danielle is one of the few Behavioural Optometrists in the Queenstown Lakes Districts, and is also a binocular vision specialist.
A driven entrepreneur, Danielle is the owner and director of the OCULA group and is committed to providing the highest level of care. In 2016 and 2019, OCULA won the Chamber of Commerce’s Outstanding in Professional Services award, and was a finalist for the same again in 2017 and 2018. Danielle spends a significant amount of time researching and up-skilling to stay ahead of the latest techniques, as well as ensuring only the most advanced technology is being used within her practices.
