Dr. Femida Visnani
Dr. Visnani and family arrived from Kampala, Uganda in 1973, and settled in St. Albert. While obtaining her Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Alberta, she discovered her passion for optometry from her optometrist, Dr. Sharad Patel. She graduated with a Doctor of Optometry degree from the New England College of Optometry in 1996 and did an internship at the Harvard Community Health Clinic in Lahey, Massachusetts. After owning her own practice for ten years, she then moved onto a refractive center for six years where she performed pre- and post-op exams for PRK and LASIK patients.
She has held positions on the board of the Alberta Association of Optometrists and was the National Congress Co-Chair for the Canadian Association of Optometrists. In addition, Dr. Visnani and her family are active in charity work, both locally and abroad.
