Dr. Dedhar is very excited to have joined the wonderful team at Heritage Optometric and to be back in his hometown of Ottawa. After completing a Bachelor of Science degree at Carleton University in 2007, he went on to complete a second Bachelor of Science in Ophthalmic Medical Technology at the University of Ottawa Eye Institute in 2009. During his training, Dr. Dedhar gained valuable experience in ocular diagnostic testing and imaging while working alongside ophthalmologists in a variety of sub-specialties. This experience spurred his interest into pursuing Optometry at the University of Waterloo where he received his Doctor of Optometry degree in 2013.

He is especially passionate about applying his clinical knowledge to help others by providing volunteer optometric care. During his time in school, he served as an executive committee representative for VOSH (Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity) and had the opportunity to volunteer in clinics in Morocco, Peru and Nunavut. In his final year he completed an internship at the Lions Sight First Eye Hospital in Malawi, Africa, for which he was awarded the David Johnston International Experience Award.

In his spare time, Dr. Dedhar enjoys playing hockey, golf and tennis. He also enjoys spending his evenings at the local arena where he is a referee for minor hockey.

Dr. Dedhar looks forward to being your eye care provider and becoming more involved with the local community.

Thank you to all of our patients for your continued support and advocacy. We are happy to announce that we are resuming eye exams for ALL OHIP-insured patients as the Ontario Association of Optometrists and provincial government agree to enter into formal negotiations.

We ask that you remain patient as we work through the backlog of appointments that were either cancelled or rescheduled. Our staff will be contacting ALL patients who have been added to our cancellation lists due to the job action to prioritize their appointments. We will continue to triage emergency visits and try to accommodate where possible.

Thank you again to all of our patients, we are excited to see you all soon! We ask that you continue to treat our staff respectfully as they work diligently to ensure that everyone is seen in a timely manner.
