Dr. Horace Deal, owner of Vision Source Professional Eye Care located at 214 Savannah Avenue, welcomes Dr. Dylan Piette to the practice. Originally from Brantford, Ontario, Dr. Piette graduated from Illinois College of Optometry in 2019. Prior to his graduate studies in the Windy City, he attended Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, where he was active with research groups while earning degrees in both Biochemistry and Business. His optometric interests include scleral contact lenses and ocular disease, specifically management of Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy and Dry Eye Disease.
Dr. Piette completed his externships at Marietta Eye Clinic, a dual ophthalmology/optometry clinic in Marietta, Georgia, Wm. Jennings Bryan Dorn VA Medical Center in Columbia, South Carolina and Brant Family Eye Care, a private practice in Brantford, Ontario. During his training, he gained experience in specialty contact lenses, which is where he became passionate about scleral lenses and providing better visual quality to patients diagnosed with extensive corneal diseases including Keratoconus.
He thoroughly enjoyed working with the veterans at the Medical Center, where he focused on Glaucoma, Dry Eyes, Diabetic Retinopathy and Macular Degeneration management and treatment. During his fourth year rotation at the Illinois Eye Institute and Brant Family Eye Care, he received additional training in urgent care and pediatrics, including Myopia control.
Growing up, Dr. Piette was active with sports, and spent much of his time playing competitive soccer and basketball. He is looking forward to getting involved with local recreational sports and volunteering with various youth sports leagues in the area. Dr. Piette is also an avid board game player and is currently looking to adopt his first dog from a local rescue shelter.
