She has particular interests in children’s vision, myopia control, and ocular therapeutics. She undertook further courses in vision therapy through the Australian College of Behavioural Optometrists.
Karina is also involved in providing Indigenous eyecare in the area around Mildura, working alongside ACO optometrists as part of the Visiting Optometry Service.
