About The Eye Scene

“At The Eye Scene I have created a haven; a beautiful boutique space which has more in common with an art gallery than an optical storefront. This is how important I believe it is to find the right glasses for you. I absolutely love what I do and can’t imagine doing anything else.”

-Lindy Goodman, Owner

Lindy Goodman

Owner/Optical Dispenser

A qualified dispenser for almost 30 years, Lindy is so much more… She is the heart and soul of The Eye Scene. She is determined to educate people that eyewear is so much more than a practical accessory. To Lindy, eyewear is a statement and one piece is never enough to suit any and all occasions. For this reason, The Eye Scene stocks thousands of pairs of glasses at any given time with new stock arriving every three months.

Opening The Eye Scene in 2003, Lindy has continued to serve Sydney’s Double Bay and surrounds with unique, stylish, fashionable, boutique eyewear. Lindy is consistently researching, building relationships with suppliers, attending trade shows and keeping abreast of the market. Travelling overseas on regular buying trips, Lindy ensures that her clients can select from the very best eyewear available anywhere in the world.

‘I buy every single pair of glasses with someone in mind. Whether that’s because they are colourful, different, unique or special. Eyewear is the very first thing people will notice about you (not your shoes) so you must get it right.

Fabian Mammarella

Optometrist

After graduating in 1982, Fabian took up locum work in various parts of Australia. This gave him the experience he needed to start his own practice and become the well-respected optometrist he is today. In 2005, he joined The Eye Scene, and it’s been a tremendously rewarding and educational journey ever since. Fabian knows each and every one of our clients and has been an integral part of our business for the past 14 years.

Debbie Narunsky

Optometrist

Debbie has a special interest in behavioural optometry and children's vision. She has an affinity with children and is passionate about ensuring that their sight is in the best possible care. Whether preventative or because an issue is suspected, Debbie will put your children at ease.

Debbie offers full-scope optometry including behavioural optometry, therapeutics, contact lenses and is familiar with new technology such as Digital Retinal Imaging and Ocular Coherence Tomography. She has extensive experience in frame selection, dispensing, adjustments, repairs and administration.

Janine Goldberg

Optical Dispenser

Janine joined The Eye Scene after a very successful career in Early Childhood Education. This is apparent in the patience and special attention she gives to our youngest clients. Janine's hands-on approach with all stock arriving at The Eye Scene means that she knows exactly what frames we have and will help you select the unique eyewear you’re after. Janine is a qualified Optical Dispenser and loves nothing more than helping and advising clients with frame selection.

Kati Frank

Optometrist

Kati graduated from UNSW in the ‘old school’ of Optometry where providing eye health, meeting optimal visual needs and dispensing comfortable, great looking spectacles were the collective responsibility of an optometrist. She has worked as an Optometrist in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs for almost 40 years.

During this time, she has also supervised undergraduate students in the School of Optometry at UNSW, chaired the Executive of the Contact Lens Society of Australia and lectured to Optical Dispensing students at UTS.

Kati is empathetic and loves engaging with people of all ages. Her warmth, humour and people skills, combined with her clinical knowledge and experience make her a favourite with her patients.

She is passionate and enthusiastic about her career and is very proud that her sons have followed her footsteps in healthcare; one of her sons specialises in Ophthalmology and the other in Rehabilitation Medicine.

Kati enjoys travel, walking and spending time with her amazing grandchildren.

Marion Max

Retail Administrator

A wonderful addition to The Eye Scene team, Marion goes that extra mile to help each client select the perfect glasses to suit their face, lifestyle, personality and style. Marion has spent 32 years of her working life running a large family jewellery factory in Cape Town, South Africa. After moving to Sydney, she felt the need to switch careers. It was not until she happened to walk into The Eye Scene one day that she realised that this was the practice she would love to work in. Lindy offered Marion a position in September 2008 and she has loved working in this practice ever since. She has watched the business grow from strength to strength and loves being part of this special team.
