Dr. Heather A. Tuttle – Optometrist
Dr. Heather Tuttle grew up in Mitchell, SD. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Biology while at South Dakota State University.

She moved to the West Coast where she attended Southern California College of Optometry. She completed clinical work at Phoenix Indian Medical Center, San Diego Naval Medical Center, and Omaha Eye and Laser Institute. In 2007, she graduated from SCCO Magna Cum Laude. After graduating from optometry school, Dr. Tuttle wanted to move closer to friends and family in the Midwest and moved to the Twin Cities.

Dr. Tuttle and her husband, Jason reside in Victoria. They have a 3 year old son named Porter and a Dachshund mix dog named Bailey. Dr. Tuttle enjoys spending time with her family and friends, golfing at Island View, and trying out new restaurants in the twin cities.
Ariel- Office Manager/ABO Certified Optician
I am originally from Sioux Falls, SD. I attended college at North Dakota State University where I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development & Family Science. I joined Precision Eye Care in 2013, and have been recognized by the American Board of Opticianry as a Certified Optician and also by the American Optometric Association as a Certified Paraoptometric. My favorite thing about my job is having the opportunity to help our patients find eyewear that matches their personality and style, while meeting their visual needs as well.
My husband, Aaron, and I live in Chaska with our 2 year old daughter, Leah, and our dog, Maggie. In my free time I enjoy doing crafts, reading, spending time with family and friends and being at the lake.
Jamie – Technician, CPO Certified
My previous experience as an Optician helped me begin my Technician role at Precision Eye Care in February of 2016. I am a Certified Paraoptometric to better serve our patients and continue my education. My favorite part of my day is meeting new people and helping with their exams and eyewear.
I love living in Waconia with my husband, Kyle, our cat, Rya, and our dog, Barkley. In my free time I love to spend time with family and at the cabin.
Kelly – Optician, CPO Certified
I worked as an optician for 1 year before starting my position here at Precision Eye Care in 2017. I have been recognized by the American Optometric Association as a Certified Paraoptometric. I love helping patients of all ages and enjoy all fashion-forward eyewear trends. I currently have 20 pairs of glasses!
I live in Hamburg with my boyfriend, Greg. In my free time I enjoy working out, being a foster mom for Fur-Ever Home Rescue, traveling and spending time at the cabin in the summer.
Nick – Optician
I began my journey in the optical industry in 2012, working for various stores in the Metro area prior to starting here at Precision Eye Care in October of 2017. However, it all feels as though it has been leading me home to Waconia. Having grown up here, I feel a special connection to our patients and customers and I’ve seen more than a couple familiar faces! My favorite part about my job is people, both the people I work with and the people that we help. I couldn’t do it without the support from the spectacular team we have assembled here.
When I’m not helping people pick out their next pair of glasses, I enjoy playing disc golf, making music with my friends and collecting stamps in my passport.
Chrissy – Front Desk Coordinator
Prior to starting at Precision Eye Care in 2017, I worked as a freelance multi-media makeup artist which is where my love for fashion eyewear comes from. My favorite thing about my job is helping patients step a little outside their comfort zone when choosing new glasses. I also love meeting people, it’s the best part of my job.
I grew up, met and married my husband, Dru, and currently live in Waconia. When I’m not researching the latest fashion trends, I enjoy painting, drawing and spending time with our two dogs and large extended family.
