Alisha Dhanji

Dr. Alisha Dhanji

Dr. Alisha Dhanji was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta. She completed a Bachelor of Biological science with a minor in Psychology at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. She went on to complete her Doctor of Optometry in Boston at the New England College of Optometry.  As part of her program she learned how to fit specialty lenses for diseased corneas at a private clinic in Derry, New Hampshire, and gained experience in treatment and management of ocular disease at the Bedford Veterans hospital in Massachusetts.  Dr. Dhanji has had various externships where she has gained the experience of treating patients of all ages and backgrounds in community health centers and private practices.

While in Optometry school, Dr. Dhanji was part of VOSH (Volunteers in Optometric Service to Humanity), and in 2018 traveled to the Dominican Republic with a group of her peers to provide eye exams in rural areas with minimal access to healthcare.  This was one of Dr. Dhanji’s favorite memories and she hopes to engage in other programs in Canada and overseas that provide eyecare to patients who do not have access to it.

Dr. Dhanji’s favourite part of the job is the coming together of healthcare and fashion!  Additionally she loves the opportunity to interact with people from all walks of life and educating patients and families about all aspects of eye health.

In her spare time, you will find Dr. Dhanji exploring coffee shops around the city, enjoying fiction books, exploring the mountains, or spending time with her family and friends.
