Dr. Shalina Amlani


Dr. Amlani received her Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Bio-Medical Science from the University of Guelph in 2015. She then earned her Doctor of Optometry degree from the University of Waterloo in 2020, graduating on the Dean’s Honours list.

During her optometry program, Dr. Amlani was the president of UWOSS (University of Waterloo Optometry Student Society) and mentorship director for CAOS (Canadian Association of Optometry Students). Her involvement in these organizations is what led to her receiving the Federation of Students Engagement award for her extensive contributions towards enhancing student life. Dr. Amlani also had the opportunity to participate in a mission trip to Peru with VOSH (Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity). Not only did she get to provide eyecare to a small, rural community in Peru, she had the opportunity to explore the beautiful country with her optometry classmates.

When Dr. Amlani isn’t taking care of eyes, she can be found spending time outdoors, doing yoga, or travelling.

Being born and raised in Ottawa, Dr. Amlani is excited to be starting her eyecare career close to home! Dr. Amlani is an active member of the Canadian Association of Optometrists, the Ontario Association of Optometrists and the Ottawa Society of Optometrists.
