Dr. Heather Tuttle grew up in Mitchell, SD. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Biology while at South Dakota State University. Go Jackrabbits! After growing up needing glasses at an early age, she knew she wanted to pursue a career in optometry to help others like her. 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. After gaining experience working in a variety of different optometric settings and clinics, Dr. Tuttle opened Precision Eye Care in January 2012 to provide exceptional eye care and personalized service to Waconia and the surrounding areas.

Dr. Tuttle and her husband, Jason reside in Minnetrista. Her husband is a PhyEd and Special Ed teacher at the Mound/Westonka Middle School.

Jamie – Office Manager, CPO and ABO Certified

I have been with Precision Eye Care since 2016, and previous experience as an Optician and Optometric Technician has helped prepare me for my role as Office Manager. I am a Certified Paraoptometric and I also have an Optician Certification from the American Board of Opticianry. I feel fortunate to have worked with returning patients throughout the years and being able to get to know them on a personal level. I also love meeting new patients and look forward to building new relationships.

My husband Kyle and I love to travel, and I also enjoy sharing my travel stories and talking to patients about their travel as well!

Jules – Optician

My favorite part of this job is building relationships with every patient and finding the perfect eyewear that matches their style and needs! I love being able to help people see, while also incorporating my love for fashion and trends.

When I am not at work, you can find me checking out new restaurants in the community, enjoying Minnesota’s many state parks and trails, and spending time with my family at the lake.

Mackinzie – Optometric Technician

I love coming to work every morning with my coworkers and meeting new people. I have always had a drive to help others, and I feel I am able to fulfill that drive while working here.

When I’m not at work, I am either at home with my cats, spending time with my family, reading a good book, or out at a concert.
