Stephen Brady Principal Optometrist

Stephen Brady

B. App. Sci. (Hons)

Stephen has been practising optometry for over 25 years and has been working at the practice since 2000. Stephen has relished furthering his education, completing masters subjects in Behavioural Optometry and is a member of OA, ACBO and ACSO.

In his spare time, Steve composes digital music and enjoys reading. No wonder he’s done so much study.

Our Optical Dispenser

Stuart Optical Dispenser


Stuart has over 25 years of optical dispensing experience. He has been with BBE since 2014 and has been greatly received by the patients ever since.

In his spare time, Stu spends time with his wife and four kids, practices yoga, is an avid surfer, and posts jokes to Facebook. Not really. OK, really.

Our Retail Team

Belle Practice Manager


B. Ed

Belle came to the business in 2007 after a career in teaching and event coordination. Belle is the Practice Manager and co-owner.

Belle enjoys eating, cooking and gardening. Especially eating.



Ellie is a long term local. When she’s not helping the clients at work, she’s enjoying furthering her optics career by studying in her own time. When she’s not doing that, you’ll find Ellie dining out and socialising. (We all love doing that around here!).

Ellie has had extensive training in the graceful art of ballet and shares a birthday with Fern!
