Born and raised in Sault Ste. Marie, Dr. Myles went on to study and receive degrees in Biology, Toxicology and Neuropharmacology from several universities. She received her final degree of Doctor of Optometry in 1990 and began her solo practice. Dr. Myles always makes sure she keeps up-to-date with the latest techniques, drugs and procedures. She treats people of all ages and provides a sense of comfort to her patients. She feels every patient has the capability to teach her something new. Off work, Dr. Myles loves to spend time with family and friends, golfing, kayaking and travelling to far-off places.
Heather Paat is the certified optometric assistant/receptionist/eyewear consultant/insurance specialist and office manager. She has been with the practice since its inception in 1990 and has played a very important role in our ongoing success. She is a graduate of the medical office assistant programme and was certified in the first Optometric Assistant programme offered by the Canadian Association of Optometrists. Heather is the ‘frame buyer’ and knows how to source the right products. She also teaches contact lens insertion and removal. Her warmth and friendliness have become synonymous with the clinic.
We offer a two-year frame and lens warranty. If for any reason under normal wearing conditions your frame breaks, we will replace it for two years. If you scratch your plastic lenses, we will even remake your lenses once during the first two years. If your contact lenses become unwearable, we will find another lens in a more comfortable material.
We accept new patients any time and invite you, your family and friends to call us.
