Melissa Le

Optometrist, University of Waterloo

I graduated from University of Waterloo School of Optometry and Vision Science in 2018. While in school I had the opportunity to work in Waterloo, Calgary, and Pinellas Park, Florida, as well as volunteer in Chisinau, Moldova with Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity. I’m thrilled to be back in the city I was raised in and I’m excited to bring my skillset and passion for eyes to the Dresden family. I have a special interest in contact lenses and dry eye management. My goal is every patient who sits in my chair not only receives exceptional care, but also leaves their exam a little more knowledgeable. I’m fluent in **English** and conversationally fluent in **Vietnamese**.

I’m a therapeutically-registered optometrist licensed to treat eye disease such as glaucoma and I’ve practised in both England and Canada. My philosophy is all about education and prevention, and I like to make the eye “exam” an enjoyable and informative experience. I believe that your appointment should be an open dialogue between doctor and patient without any barriers. I hold a special interest in dry eye management and I see myself as a preserver of eye health before anything else.

Dharani Devathasan

I grew up in Markham, Ontario and graduated with a Bachelor in Science (Specialization in Biochemistry) and Doctor of Optometry from the University of Waterloo. I am fluent in both English and Tamil. During my clinical rotation in Salt Lake City, I was exposed to a wide array of ocular diseases with particular emphasis on primary open angle glaucoma treatment and management. I enjoy practicing full-scope optometry and fitting contact lenses. In 2016 during my time in school, I also participated in a mission trip in Moldova, where I completed eye exams and co-managed a variety of ocular conditions with the ophthalmologists onsite. I hope to participate in more mission trips in the future and give back to my hometown. When I’m not busy working at the clinic, you can find me travelling, doing yoga, working out, or enjoying my time with my close friends and family members. I absolutely love the fast-paced environment and energy that downtown Toronto embodies. I am ecstatic to be able to provide quality eye care to the residents of Toronto.
