Arie Walker graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1988, and has practiced optometry for the past 20 years. His first job was in a paediatric optometry clinic in Narre Warren, where he gained experience in children’s vision.
In 1992 he started his own practice in North Melbourne and spent a few years as a teaching clinician at the Victorian College of Optometry. He also served on the Optometrists Association Victorian Division Council for seven years.
Arie, Joe and Lino started their partnership at Vision@Broadway (formerly Reservoir Optical Centre) in 1995, and then opened Vision@Mill Park in 1997. Arie successfully completed a Certificate in Business Management at Latrobe University in 2007.
Apart from optometry, Arie enjoys time with his wife and two daughters. He is also keen on fishing, swimming and the Carlton football club.
