Heather Paat

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 been a very big part 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 her lines and frame availability well. If we don’t have it she will find it based on what you think you would like style-wise or colour wise. She also teaches contact lens insertion and removal. Over the years our patients have seen her become a mom and recently a grandmother. We often have a session of trading grandkid pictures with our patients.

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 saveeyecare.ca. If you have more questions please call us. Thanks for 30 years of support and friendship.
