About Our Practice

At Downtown Optometry you will find an optometrist and staff who are dedicated to providing you with excellent vision and ocular care. Our patients find a friendly atmosphere where we welcome all ages and are set up for children to come and either play or accompany their parents into the exam room. We value these relationships with our patients and their extended families. We strive to offer advice and products that will improve the quality of your vision and visual health. We use state-of-the –art technologies in our practice and are confident that we are able to diagnose, treat or refer for any vision problems that may arise.

Heather is your first introduction to our practice. She will greet you at the front desk and help with any paper work or insurance forms, including online billing when we can. Dr. Myles will then work with you and provide a comprehensive assessment of the health of your eyes, your visual acuities and any corrections necessary. She is willing to answer any questions you may have about the exam, any referrals necessary or just the latest in contact lenses, optical lenses or eyewear. We still book a half hour exam so have plenty of time to talk!

Heather will complete your experience in our office by helping you to choose the right frame for your face, colouring and optical lens need.

Total Eye Health

The health of your eyes is our major concern. That is why we stand behind our products and services with unique warranties, and a professional and well-educated team. Different prescriptions require certain frame styles and lens treatments in order for your glasses to perform well and look great.

Our dispensary has hundreds of frames from which to choose, including a large selection of children’s frames. We can help you find the size, shape and color of frame that is perfect for all family members. When it comes to contact lenses we offer a full spectrum of the latest and best performing products. Even if you have been told before that you cannot wear lenses, we will work to find the contact lens for your needs.

Competitive Pricing

At Downtown Optometry we offer competitive pricing, affordable eyewear packages, and multiple pair savings. You are also welcome to take advantage of manufacturer rebate programs and special promotions through our office. Be sure to ask about our convenient contact lens direct shipping program.


We offer a wide selection of products in our office as well as through custom orders. We use only the highest quality materials and will courteously recommend eyewear and contact lenses that fit your lifestyle and fashion – all within your budget. We will also work to utilize and maximize the coverage from your insurance company.


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 at any time and invite you, your family and friends to contact us at the office number 705-809-3300.

Special notice from Dr. Myles: I have worked for 30 years in the optometric profession. Some patients are covered by OHIP children to age 19, seniors 65+ and partial exams for follow ups or patient initiated complaints. In those 30 years there has been less than a 3% increase in fees. That is the same as wages being $5.50/hr in 1990 and now paying $6.60/hr. Is it fair? No. We are now in the position of paying from our pocket to see OHIP patients. On June 15, optometrists of Ontario will be initiating a job action to bring the attention of MOH and OHIP to the failed negotiations that have gone on for 30 years. We hope you will understand and support us in these times. See the website If you have more questions please call us. Thanks for 30 years of support and friendship.
