Our eye sight is such an important part of our everyday lives. I take great pride in being able to improve our patients daily life by helping them see their best. I feel protecting this precious vision by providing an extremely thorough eye health assessment exam to screen and detect early conditions that may hamper or threaten vision is just as important.
I have had the privilege of being an optometrist and serving the Stoney Creek and surrounding community at Stoney Creek Eye Care (formerly Dueck Optometry) since 2001. I became the new owner of the clinic in October 2017.
I attended the University of Waterloo where I studied in the Honours Science program in my undergraduate studied and then attended the Doctor of Optometry program also at the University of Waterloo. I graduated with both an Honours Bachelor of Science Degree (B.Sc) as well as a Doctor of Optometry (OD) degree.
As part of my optometry training I did my externship at the prestigious Omni Eye Institute in Baltimore, Maryland. I gained extensive experience in diagnosing and managing ocular health conditions, working alongside glaucoma, cataract, retina, cornea and uveitis specialists. I also worked at their satellite location in White Marsh, MD, where I worked alongside a paediatric ophthalmologist where I spent time gaining practical experience in children’s vision.
I have also spent two summers while in Optometry school as a researcher at the world renowned Centre for Contact Lens Research (CCLR) at the School of Optometry, UW where I learned about the latest in contact lens technology.
I enjoy meeting new patients and learning about their visual needs and make sure to take time to answer all questions and concerns and to provide a customized solution to their particular situation.
I practice comprehensive optometry where I enjoy primary eye care, children’s vision, contact lenses, dry eyes, computer vision syndrome, LASIK co-management, and ocular disease diagnosis and management. I am certified in TPAs (Therapeutic Pharmaceutical Agents) and routinely prescribe medications as needed in the treatment of various eye conditions.
I an an active member of the Ontario Association of Optometrists (OAO), Canadian Association of Optometrists (CAO) and the Hamilton and District Society of Optometrists and I am a TLC Laser Eye Centres affiliate doctor.
We are fortunate to be in an area where we have excellent ophthalmology colleagues in various sub specialties that we have a great rapport with. I provide timely referrals as deemed necessary for any surgical needs or other issues beyond our scope of practice. I enjoy the variety of helping patients from all age groups whether it is a young family with children, a professional with work related visual concerns or a senior with ocular health issues. I take my time to determine the perfect prescription for your needs.
In my spare time I enjoy swimming, going to the gym and spending time with my wife Cynthia and our two young boys, Pierre and Leo!
I have been fortunate to meet many great patients in our clinic over the years and have enjoyed seeing their families grow and look forward to meeting and servicing the visual needs of many more over the coming years!
