Shazaan graduated from the University of New South Wales with a Bachelor of Optometry (with Honours) and a Bachelor of Science with Majors in Vision Science.
During his final year of training at the University he did a placement in remote outback NSW which sparked his interest in regional optometry. After graduating he moved to a small country town outside Sydney and later took a job travelling to different regional clinics throughout outback NSW doing eye exams in remote communities who would otherwise not have access to an optometrist.
He has a keen interest in myopia control having recently completed the course myopia management run by the Brien Holden Vision Institute. He has also commenced his masters in clinical optometry and is looking to specialise in dry eye and advanced contact lenses fitting.
