Dr. Melanie Hoo-Fatt


Dr. Melanie Hoo-Fatt attended Waterloo University’s Pre-Optometry Program and graduated in 1991 with a Bachelor’s of Science.  She continued on to receive her Doctor of Optometry degree in 1995 from Nova Southeastern University in Florida. Soon after graduating she began her optometry career as an associate practicing at several clinics across the Lower Mainland in British Columbia.

Working as an associate created a desire to open her own practice where she could focus on family eye care providing the everyday needs for all members and dynamics of a family. In 1996, Dr. Hoo-Fatt opened Eyetopia Optometry, in Maple Ridge, BC. Her practice included a full functioning eyeglass dispensary and laboratory, contact lens dispensary, for the visual needs of each patient, as well as visual field equipment and an OPTOMAP camera to assist in the health needs of each patient. It was Dr. Hoo-Fatt’s goal to create an environment of comprehensive eye care for each patient, as well as providing all the visual needs that an average family could want.

Throughout her 20 years in private practice, she also established herself in the community of Maple Ridge with her passion for Hawaiian dancing where she taught and performed the art of hula.

In 2016, Dr. Hoo-Fatt wanted to be closer to immediate family and made the move to Ontario. The same values and focus for family eye care has remained her driving force in her profession and she is looking forward to growing with the community of Thornhill through the Promenade Optometry Clinic.
