About us

Herb Maynard is your Optometrist.

Herb has lived in Napier most of his life – his family moved here in the early 1970’s.

He went through Taradale High School and went on to Auckland University to complete his Bachelor of Optometry degree.

After working at several Optometry practices here and in the UK, he settled back in Napier and opened his practice in 1995.  He started off in a small building in Lower Emerson Street and moved to larger premises in Tennyson Street in 2002.

Herb believes very strongly in the importance of health professionals keeping their knowledge up to date and is currently doing part-time post-graduate Optometry study.  He’s a member of the New Zealand Association of Optometrists.

He lives in Napier, and when he’s not working he relaxes with fly fishing, cycling, and renovating his old villa.
