-OPTICIAN & OWNER-
After 13 years of working for major Optical and Optometric companies, Neda decided to start her own practice by taking over an established optical shop. Eyes on Avenue has been serving clients for over 21 years. Her goal is to provide optimal, comfortable vision to all of her clients.
Neda has a degree in French Literature, and after migrating to Canada she decided to start a career in the Optical Industry. While solidifying her love in the industry for many years, she pursued a degree in opticianry herself, and successfully passed her board exams admitting her to the College of Opticians in March 2009.
Neda specializes in problem solving, assessing her client’s needs, and addressing any issues with their vison through their glasses and/or contact lenses. As a trained contact lens fitter, she enjoys instilling her knowledge of proper contact lens hygiene, habits and proper wear through education and direct supervision of her patients prior to dispensing any contact lenses. She is also trained in assessing vision for more complicated issues and arranging proper referral for her patients to seek further care if necessary.
She was elected as a Council member of the College of Opticians in Jan 2015 to serve the interest of public in Ontario. Her mandate is in governance, inquiries, complaints, and reporting.
Dr. NICOLE THEISS
Dr. Nicole Theiss was born and raised in the Toronto area and has always had a passion for education and health. After graduating from the University of Guelph with an Honours Bachelor of Science, she pursued her doctorate at the prestigious New England College of Optometry in Boston, MA.
Dr. Theiss is licensed to practice Optometry in both the United States and Canada, and after working in Boston for a year after school, she moved home to Toronto to be close to family. She is now a member of the Beta Sigma Kappa Honor Society, Ontario Association of Optometrists, and the College of Optometrists of Ontario.
Dr. Theiss loves to provide eye care to people of all ages, and is particularly interested in ocular disease, dry eye management and binocular vision. She strives to create an approachable, casual environment for her patients, and as an educator by nature, loves to answer any and all of their questions with time and care.
Outside of the office, Dr Theiss enjoys being involved in the community and frequently provides mobile geriatric care in long term care homes. She also travels yearly to the Dominican Republic to oversee optometry students and provide eye care to underserved populations. Her passion for education also found her involved in teaching and tutoring while at school, and now as a published author of optometry board exam study guides for students.
When she’s not at work or researching the latest in ocular health and technology, Dr. Theiss enjoys practicing yoga, listening to music, antiquing and hiking.
