Get to Know Us a Bit Better

Fergus Optometry was established by Dr. Vanesh Kathiravelu, who was drawn to practice and raise his family in Centre Wellington by the area’s natural beauty and the warmth, industriousness, and friendliness of the people in the community.

Dr. Kathiravelu has been practicing optometry since 2007, when he graduated from the prestigious Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago, where he completed clinical rotations in advanced ocular disease management at various hospitals throughout the United States. He is certified to prescribe therapeutic pharmaceutical agents and has a special interest in treating conjunctivitis, iritis, and dry eyes. Dr. Kathiravelu is a member of the Canadian Association of Optometrists, the Ontario Association of Optometrists and a member in good standing of the College of Optometrists of Ontario.

Dr. Kathiravelu actively contributes to his profession through his work on the Registration and Evaluating Exam Oversight Committees at the College of Optometrists of Ontario. He is also a Quality Assurance Coach who works with and mentors his peers to ensure that high-quality optometric care is being provided across the province.

In his spare time, Dr. Kathiravelu enjoys spending time with his wife and son. He is also an avid sports fan and cheers for the Leafs and Raptors.
