Dr. Sonia Heer received her doctorate from the Illinois College of Optometry where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. Due to her academic achievements, she was awarded membership to the Tomb and Key Honor Society and Beta Sigma Kappa Honor Society upon graduation.
Her passion for Optometry continually drives her to pursue further education to provide the best and most up-to-date care for each patient. She finds having acquired skills to provide thorough ocular health examinations has been exceptionally rewarding, as treating any vision impairment can significantly improve the quality of life for an individual.
Born and raised in Edmonton, Dr. Heer and her husband are grateful to be surrounded by a big family here in town that keeps the two of them busy all year round. They recently welcomed their first child and he has been the greatest joy of their lives.
During her free time, Dr. Heer enjoys exploring the city with her little one, traveling with her family, and experiencing the ever-changing food culture in Edmonton. When she’s not out and about, you’ll find her embracing some quality time at home relaxing, reading, catching up on a good docuseries, or taking on a new DIY project.
