Meet our charity board

The purpose of the Foureyes Foundation is to identify & treat New Zealand children with eyesight problems (especially those in low-income families). Our Board members are:

Grant Dabb  DipOpt, CertOcPharm, FACBO

Foureyes Foundation Board member Grant Dabb

Grant is a behavioural optometrist who has been in practice for 30 years. His major interest is children’s vision and visually related learning difficulties. Grant works with people of all ages to manage functional problems such as focusing, tracking and lazy eyes; and has a special interest in resolving the effects of stroke and brain injuries on visual function.

Grant is a Member of the NZ Association of Optometrists, and a Fellow of the Australasian College of Behavioural Optometrists. He is involved in providing vision care in the Special Olympics. 


Renuka Rao  CA

Foureyes Foundation Board member Renu Rao

Renu is a chartered accountant with 17 years experience in both commercial and not-for-profit entities. She has a Bachelor of Management Studies (with an accounting major) and Bachelor of Laws from the University of Waikato. Her current role is as a Financial Accountant in Local Government.  





Ravi Dass BOptom, CertOcPharm

Foureyes Foundation Board member Ravi Dass   

Ravi is the co-founder of Mr Foureyes, with wife Steph. He has been practicing optometry since 2004, when he was lucky to start his career (with Grant) in a practice specialising with children. Throughout university and into his career, he has been active in the volunteer space - doing charity work in the Pacific Islands through Volunteer Ophthalmic Services Overseas, and working at Pacific Eye Institute in Fiji (part of Fred Hollows). 



Steph Hill  MSc

Foureyes Foundation Board member Steph Hill

Stephanie has a background in public sector environmental management. In mid-2015, she left her public sector role to spend more time on Mr Foureyes, as well as raising two children (Manu, 5, and Nila, 1). Her decade and more working in fisheries management seems like a distant dream, but her skills in project management and analysis are now called into play managing the Mr Foureyes website and assisting with planning of the charity programme.
