Siann Aburn (B.Optom)

I grew up in Auckland & after completing my degree in 1991 I started work in Palmerston North at Stephens & Giles. After travelling overseas for a few years I worked down south for a number of years before returning to Palmy in 1999 to join Peter Giles in partnership at Eyes on Broadway. I enjoy all aspects of practice and love meeting new people.  My spare time is taken up with following my 2 boys sporting teams and activities. We love outdoor things like biking, trail running and triathlons though they are starting to leave me behind now!


Peter Giles (Dip Opt)

Peter graduated in 1981 and has been in this practice since 1984.  His special interests lie in contact lenses and childrens vision associated with learning difficulties. He enjoys Palmerston North and its environment, being actively involved in the community through the Lions club. He is a past councillor of the NZAO and chairman of the Optometric Vision Research Foundation.


Melissa Kern (BOptom (TPA))

Melissa has recently joined the team of Optomotrists at Eyes on Broadway. She graduated with a Bachelor of Optometry from Auckland University in 2013.
