Dr. Jasmine Dhesi was born and raised in Surrey, British Columbia. She received her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of British Columbia, graduating with distinction. Wanting to stay in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, she then obtained her Doctor of Optometry with distinction from Pacific University College of Optometry in Oregon.
During her studies, Dr. Dhesi served as an executive member of Beta Sigma Kappa Optometric Honour Society as well as a volunteer for AMIGOS Eye Care, a non-profit organization that allowed her to provide eye care on international mission trips to Senegal and Belize. In her final year of training, she completed externships at a vision therapy practice in Washington, a Veterans Medical Center in Pennsylvania, and private practices in California and our very own Vancouver Island. These opportunities provided her with clinical experience in binocular vision, ocular disease, geriatrics, and low vision.
Outside of optometry, Dr. Dhesi enjoys traveling (having explored 15 countries across the globe so far), hiking, watching movies and spending time with her family and friends.
Dr. Dhesi is very excited to join the Valley Vision Optometry team. She will be practicing as an Associate Optometrist and is eager to provide comprehensive and personable care to the Port Alberni community. If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment, please call (250) 724-0933.
