Optometrist Gosford and Killarney Vale



Central Coast Eyecare has been providing quality eye health care to the Central Coast for 75 years, and we are extremely proud to stand apart from the discount and franchise outlets that you may see so heavily advertised. Where they have a strong emphasis upon quick patient turnaround and retail sales, our commitment is absolute peak eye health care and appropriate prescribing of quality products for the best visual correction and eye health management that you can have.



We are the longest running optometrist practice on the Central Coast, having started in 1945. Being a family owned local business, our proprietors and staff are the same friendly faces you will see year after year. On average, our staff have been with us for ten years, so you’re not going to come in, and have to reintroduce yourself to us every time we see you. Everyone is different, so we get to know our patients well, in order to provide the quality and service they require and need.

Our Team

Highly qualified, experienced and friendly team of optometrists, consultants and assistants.

Dr Philip Crossfield

Director / Optometrist  B.Optom(Hons)

Practising since 1993, Philip has always been interested in scientific and medical things and wanted a career where he could combine this with relating to people and helping them. Optometry was a good career choice to do both.

Dr Katy Casey

Director / Optometrist   
B.App.Sc. (Optom), Grad.Cert. Ocular Therapeutics, Credentialed Optometrist (Aviation)

Practising since 1995, Katy was always keen on science subjects at school and having worn glasses since she was 15 years old, optometry seemed like a good option. Katy is both professional and caring to her patients.

Dr Shauna Elsworthy

Optometrist  B.Sc.Optom(Hons)

Practising since 2007, Shauna also gravitated to a science/medical career where she could help people. Loving travel, she completed her optometry degree in Ireland. Shauna had been a patient of CCE since she was 14.

Sarah Tait

Optometrist BSc BOptom(Hons)

Practising since 2014, Sarah combines her love of science and meeting people to clearly and effectively communicate with her patients. After volunteering for Cambodia Vision, she appreciates how lucky we are in Australia to have access to great healthcare.

Emma Kemp


I have had a fascination with biology since I was in primary school. Optometry has been a good fit for me because it allows me to use science to help people in real world settings.
Since starting my career in 2017 I have worked all over Australia, and enjoy seeing how my work improves the quality of life of my patients. I find seeing children especially rewarding as good vision is such an important component of being able to learn effectively at school.
In my spare time I love cooking and hunting down the best restaurants.
