Rich Faloon-Cavander

We are delighted to welcome Rich Faloon-Cavander at OCULA Merivale.

A true adventurer at heart, Rich, who grew up in Auckland, and fell in love with South Island after graduation, admits he is happiest outdoors. Over the years, this family man, inspired by his whanau, has worn many hats within the community, including being an outdoor instructor, a ski patroller, and most importantly for us – an optometrist.

Rich has gained a broad depth of optical and optometric experiences over the years, which includes working at an optometry clinic in Fiji as well as working with NZ Aid and Australia Aid on two visits to Tonga.

Initially working with John Anstice, specialising in behavioural and paediatric optometry, Rich decided he wanted to add more notches to his academic career, and completed a BA in philosophy. 

Being supportive and assisting others are part of his core accomplishments – a perfect fit with our OCULA team!
