Dr. James Agate

Dr. James Agate was born and raised in Beamsville Ontario, attending Jacob Beam Elementary and Beamsville Secondary and is now raising his family in Grimsby. Upon graduating from the University of Waterloo School of Optometry, Dr. Agate returned to his roots and began immediately to practice with Dr. E.J. Gordon at the present location.

He made the practice his own through extensive renovations, upgrades in optometric and office equipment, adding an in house lab, and up-scaling the dispensary. Dr. Agate is proactive with his continuing education including receiving his TMOD (Treatment and Management of Ocular Diseases).

As the practice continued to grow, Dr. Agate searched for a partner to compliment his vision for patient care and welcomed Dr. Jake Audet.

When not looking after patients, Dr. Agate enjoys playing golf, bridge, racket sports and travelling with his wife, Liliana.
