Dr. Lorelei F. Zeiler, O.D
Dr. Zeiler graduated from the Optometry Program at the University of Waterloo in 2002. During her studies at Waterloo, Dr. Zeiler interned at the Omni Eye Care Clinic in Baltimore, Maryland.

In October 2003 she opened to patients behind AAJones Optical in Caledonia, then in August 2005 Dr. Zeiler bought the optical dispensary from AAJones. Dr. Zeiler’s full scope optometric practice continues to grow thanks to her excellent patient care and word-of-mouth referrals.

She also works with local elementary schools conducting vision screening for Senior Kindergarten students and has an excellent presentation on eyes geared for students in Grades 4 & 5.
