Meet Our Eye Doctors

Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.

Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

Meet our doctors:


Dr. Shelly Taneja-Dhaliwal

Dr. Taneja-Dhaliwal grew up admiring the eye. No, not the eyes of an individual, but the eye itself. She recognizes the importance of the eye as a critical and irreplaceable part of the human body, and wants to help everyone understand how to properly care for their eyes. Dr. Taneja-Dhaliwal especially loves children (and their eyes) and dealing with contact lenses.

Dr. Taneja-Dhaliwal has received her Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems and her O.D. in optometry from the University of Manchester (in England). Dr. Taneja-Dhaliwal also belongs to the Alberta Association of Optometrists, Alberta College of Optometrists and the Calgary Society of Optometrists. She has been in practice for almost three years.

Dr. Taneja-Dhaliwal remembers the patient who was unable to find the perfect contact lenses because he worked in a very dusty environment. Dr. Taneja-Dhaliwal was able to find a solution to the patient’s issue, and the patient was very grateful. Dr. Taneja-Dhaliwal enjoys helping patients find their individual eye care solution.

When not helping people see better, Dr. Taneja-Dhaliwal enjoys yoga, dancing, spending time with her husband and ten month old daughter.



Dr. Raman Thind-Gill

Dr. Raman Thind-Gill was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta. She received her Bachelor of Science from the University of Alberta, but then pursued her passion in optometry as a graduate of Aston University (UK) with a BSc (Hons) MC Optom. Upon her return to Canada, Dr. Thind-Gill graduated from the University of Waterloo’s International Optometric Bridging Program.

Dr. Thind-Gill’s interest in optometry began while she was working as an assistant at a local optometry clinic during her undergraduate studies. This position provided her with the knowledge and interest of helping people with their vision and selection of suitable eyewear/lenses. Dr. Thind-Gill enjoys being thorough in her examinations, so her patients are able to understand their eye health. She has a keen interest in dry eye therapy and studying ocular disease.

Dr. Thind-Gill is a member of the Alberta Association of Optometry, the Canadian Association of Optometry and the Calgary Society of Optometry.

Dr. Thind-Gill now resides in Calgary with her husband and dog, Rambo. She enjoys spending time with her family, travelling, watching her favorite reality TV shows and a good book from time to time.
