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.

Andrew Attardo

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.
