Our Team

Our Team Kevin Hackett Optometrist

Kevin Hackett

After graduating from Auckland University, New Zealand in 1978, Kevin came to Western Australia to pursue his dream of opening an optometry practice.

Kevin moved to Geraldton in 1982 after being drawn to its laidback lifestyle. Kevin Hackett Optometrist was one of the founding stores when Northgate Shopping Centre opened its doors in October that same year.

Since then, Kevin has provided comprehensive eye care to many generations of Geraldton and Midwest families. Utilising the latest technology equipment for examinations, high performance lenses and unique eyewear collections as well as investing in ongoing training, Kevin and his team are dedicated to maximising you visual and ocular health, today and into the future.


Keira Hackett

Keira has been a part of the team for 14 years, helping out as a casual during school holidays until becoming a fulltime member nine years ago.

Keira is a skilled dispenser, and her eye for design and style has put her in charge of selecting, purchasing and displaying all of our optical frames and sunglasses. Keira’s talent in sourcing frames and matching these frames with faces, has helped Kevin Hackett Optometrist earn a reputation as being the place to go if you’re looking for high quality, stylish glasses that suit every personality.


Carol Martin

Carol has been a part of the Kevin Hackett family for over 27 years, starting at the ripe old age of sixteen. She has been an integral part of our day-to-day operation, providing high quality customer care and expert advice.

Additionally, Carol is our lab technician, specialising in the dispensing and fitting of lenses. Carol has also been known to work miracles on spectacles that have seen better days. Carol’s skills and expertise means we’re able to provide onsite lens cutting and spectacle fitting, ensuring better quality spectacles delivered much faster.


Tracey Collard

Tracey has been a valued member of the team for 17 years and counting. She is not only an experienced dispenser, but also Kevin’s skilled contact lens assistant.

She shows both new and seasoned contact lens wearers the best ways to insert, remove and care for contact lenses for optimum use, and excels at recommending the perfect pair based on the needs, vision requirements and preferences of each patient. She also assists Kevin with children’s vision assessments. Along with Kevin’s behavioural optometry training, this expertise means we can provide children with the best possible vision solution, giving their parents peace of mind.
