Aside from a subtle reminder of how old I am, I love that my patients trust me and Henderson Vision Centre enough to bring their kids, who in turn are bringing their kids. It reminds me that people really do value the great care we provide.” When he isn’t in the clinic or fulfilling duties associated with his professional obligations, Dr. Mundle can be found spending time with his wife (fellow University of Waterloo graduate, Dr. Michelle Georgi) and his three kids (Cameron, Kirsten, and Kent). He’s also deeply dedicated to his beloved Saskatchewan Roughriders - feel free to give him the gears about it when you come in. ;)

It feels really incredible to be a true multi-generational Optometrist” Dr. Mestito-Dao is a dedicated mother of two. A self-described “dance and stage mom”, you can find her at various dance events and behind the scenes as she encourages her daughters on in pursuing their passions.

I am honoured that my patients continue to see me year after year- it really shows the trust that exists between us.” When she isn’t at the clinic, Dr. Chow is running circles trying to keep up with her two energetic boys. Once she’s had enough cardio, her favourite treat is making ice cream (she makes her own at home) in all sorts of delicious flavours.

  • Doctor of Optometrist, University of Waterloo School of Optometry and Vision Science (Honour Roll)
“Henderson Vision Centre feels like home; I have been a patient here since age 4. Growing up, I was a patient of Dr. Reiss’ and it was her passion that inspired me to become an Optometrist. It is a pleasure to work alongside a great team of Optometrists.”

Dr. Melo has travelled extensively, and has volunteered in India at a local eye hospital. Her husband is from Mexico and she has 2 young boys. She is a “foodie” and makes great desserts!

Dr. Leanne Zimmer started her career at Henderson Vision Centre while she was studying to become an Optometrist at the University of Waterloo.

Dr. Zimmer is a self-proclaimed travel nut. Her most memorable trip was in 2012 when she traveled to Ecuador for an Optometry Mission through Volunteer Optometrist Services to Humanity (VOSH). During this trip, she provided vision care and performed eye exams for those in need. Locally Dr. Zimmer volunteers with Soup Sister’s Winnipeg and the Plug In Gallery. You can also find her playing tennis in her spare time!

Dr. Peloquin was first introduced to our team during the summer of 2017 when he completed a clinical externship at our practice. During his final year of optometric studies, he was exposed to a wide array of ocular diseases and became well-versed in pediatric eye care. Dr. Peloquin is excited to bring his knowledge to HVC. His academic and professional accomplishments include:
  • Bachelor of Science, Université de Saint-Boniface (honour roll)
