Jill Howie
Manager and Optician

328 Speers Rd.
Oakville, Ontario

Worked at Hakim Optical for 27 years

Jill has been working at Hakim Optical’s Speers location in Oakville for 27 years. She started her optical journey at the age of 17, working as the receptionist for her stepfather’s optical store before deciding to further her education.

When she went to school to obtain her optician’s license, a fellow classmate and area manager for Hakim Optical offered her a position at the company. She accepted and has since helped countless customers in Oakville find the perfect frames and continues to build enduring relationships with her clientele.

Her enthusiasm for helping her customers find the perfect pair of eyewear is evident; she patiently helps everyone that walks through her door find glasses they love.

Jill’s Picks for Spring 2017:
We asked Jill to spotlight some of her favourite eyewear and she was quick to pick out round lens glasses that are trending in 2017. She shared a pair of Prada sunglasses and Ray-Ban glasses that are selling well in Oakville and appeal to a wide range of customers.

Prada Swirling Sunglasses

These round, oversized sunglasses with a swirling frame at the temple are a fashion statement and a dramatic accessory that will complement any outfit.


Ray-Ban Classic Round Lenses

These full-rim, metal frame glasses are perfect for both men and women, and the classic round lenses suit most face shapes.
