Husband and wife optometrists Anthony and Letitia Dowling are relocating after 13 years at Horsham’s Wimmera Eye Care.
The pair will embark on a new venture in Ocean Grove with their two young children, taking ownership of established optometry practice Ocean Eyes Optometrists.
Mr and Mrs Dowling said the decision was made with a heavy heart given their love for Horsham.
Since 2006, the Dowlings have been involved in many community activities, including Apex Club 15, Horsham Fishing Competition’s committee, Bennett Road, Casuarina Kindergartens, Ss Michael and John’s Primary School committees and revival of the Horsham Music Eisteddfod.
They said their new venture was an exciting opportunity but admitted they would be filled with mixed emotions when they leave not only loyal patients, but also a highly supportive community.
“We have a real passion for looking after a regional community and owning our own business is something we’ve always wanted to do,” they said.
“The positive feedback and messages of support we have received from our patients since we announced our decision has been truly amazing.
“We can only hope to replicate that goodwill in Ocean Grove.”
“We also want to reassure our patients that although we will not be there, they will continue to receive excellent care from the Wimmera Eye Care team.
“We will also always be happy to provide ongoing support from a distance should that be needed.”
