Ben Chant

B. App. Sci. (Hons) Grad Cert Oc Therap

Ben Chant graduated his optometry education in 2011 from QUT with honours. Ben then embarked on further study and completed his ocular therapeutic qualifications in 2014 and is now able to prescribe treatment for a myriad of ocular conditions.

Through the course, he discovered a new passion for the diagnosis and treatment of ocular disease, especially glaucoma and dry eye. Ben’s passion first and foremost is patient care and the relationships he has created with his patients is the thing that he most enjoys about being an optometrist. Outside of work, Ben adores sport of all kinds and especially loves supporting his beloved AFL team, the Brisbane Lions.
