A native of New Brunswick, Dr. Danielle Frigault studied Biochemistry at the University of Moncton and received her diploma in Optometry from the University of Montreal. She is now established and has been practicing in the Ottawa area for over 15 years. Dr. Frigault has a particular interest in ocular health and the diagnosis of diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and retinal anomalies. She works closely with local ophthalmologists and physicians to monitor patients.
She has extensive experience in fitting contact lenses in patients of all ages, from the young athlete to the active retiree and in co-management of refractive laser surgeries. Her patients appreciate her for her professionalism, her thoroughness and her warm Acadian personality. In her spare time, Danielle shares her life with her spouse Andrew and their two children. She enjoys traveling and the outdoors, and is a dedicated “hockey mom” acting as trainer and manager for the hockey teams of their two young players Naomi and Jérémy.
