Please note: Ontario optometrists have made the difficult decision to withdraw from delivering OHIP paid exams, due to neglected eyecare funding from the Ontario government for the past 30 years.
Online booking is still available for non-OHIP paid exams, and we are open for retail.
Please call the office to be put on a waiting list if you are an OHIP paid patient. We apologize for any inconvenience.
If you would like to help, please visit or call your MPP.

Rachel Towriss, Cert. of Opticianry


After completing a co-op placement in high school at a small town optometry office, Rachel headed to Georgian College in 1999 to pursue a career in Opticianry and graduated in 2001 with honours. She began her career right away in Guelph and has worked in many different facets of the optical industry from small independent offices to large chain stores. Her passion has always been to educate people about their eye health and to connect with people and build relationships while helping them see better. She especially loves working with children and the elderly.

Rachel moved to “The Greatest Town on Earth” in 2008 for love and is proud to call Petrolia home. Along with her husband, kids, and various pets, Rachel finds Petrolia to be an amazing place to raise a family. Rachel is a passionate knitter, enjoys doing lab work and making glasses, and is a lover of the outdoors.
