Dr. Andrew Patterson

Dr. Andrew Patterson’s career with the McLeod Optometry Clinic spans over three decades.

After graduating from Sir Robert Borden High School, Dr Patterson enrolled in the University of Waterloo. He completed his clinical training in Jamaica in 1979, before graduating in 1980 with a Doctorate of Optometry.

Born and raised in Ottawa, Dr. Patterson chose to return to his hometown and to join the family practice, originally working with his father, Dr. R.W. Patterson. The practice was truly a family operation, with both father and son working in together performing the eye exams, and Mrs. Patterson overseeing the administration of the office.

His dedication to the profession has continually seen Dr. Patterson pursuing opportunities to better the field, producing a long and diverse career within the Optometric Community.

From 1983 until 1995, Dr. Patterson was an active member of the Canadian Vision Caravan, a charitable organization providing free eye care to third world countries. Additionally, he also sat on the Quality Assurance Committee of the College of Optometry from 1990 until 1991.

Dr. Patterson was an advisor to the Canadian Examiners Board, which reviews and updates the national optometric licensing examinations. His current practice includes an extensive focus on contact lenses and laser vision correction.

In Dr. Patterson’s free time, he enjoys skiing, golfing and fishing.
