Specializing in Eye Rejuvenation
Dr. Femida Kherani completed her Medical School and Surgical Ophthalmology Residency at the University of Alberta. During Medical School, Dr. Kherani spent a year at Oxford University studying Humanism of Medicine (a field that explores the respectful relationships between physicians and their patients). She subsequently completed a Fellowship in Oculofacial Plastic Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Oculofacial Plastic Surgery is a distinct field of plastic surgery that examines reconstructive and aesthetic treatments that restore the face, with special attention on the eye area. The eye area includes the eyelids and eyebrows.
In Philadelphia, Dr. Kherani was a Clinical and Surgical Instructor for Residents and Medical Students at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Kherani worked at the Centre for Human Appearance, where she worked in a multidisciplinary team. Dr. Kherani is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Calgary and a Clinical Instructor at the University of British Columbia.
Dr. Kherani regularly speaks nationally and internationally on Adult and Pediatric Oculoplastic conditions, at meetings for professional medical organizations such as the American Academy of Ophthalmology. She is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and she is a Diplomate of the American Board of Ophthalmology. She is a Fellow of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS). Dr. Kherani is a member of the Canadian Society of Oculoplastic Surgeons. On the executive board for Women in Ophthalmology USA, Dr. Kherani is the founder of the Western Canadian Chapter.
Dr Kherani routinely performs research projects, many of which have been published in international medical journals. One of her many published research projects includes Review of Eye Injuries Associated With Dermatologic Laser Treatment (Dermatologic Surgery Vol. 48, No. 5, May 2022).
This review discusses the eye injuries associated with laser skin treatments. Dr Kherani and her team found that most injuries appear to be related to improper technique or a lack of adequate eye protection.
Dr Kherani’s work here provides further insight into how we can provide our patients with a safer laser treatment experience. That’s why our medical laser aestheticians, under the direction of both Dr Kherani and Dr Jaffer, have extensive training and knowledge to ensure that your treatment is performed correctly. This is incredibly important when treating the face, in particular the delicate area around the eyes.
Dr Kherani serves as the Canadian Commissioner for the International Joint Commission on Allied Health Personal of Ophthalmology (IJCAHPO). IJCAHPO is a professional medical organization that was established in 1969 to provide reputable certification and education enrichment to medical professionals recognized as ophthalmic allied health personnel. She also serves as an Oral Examiner for ASOPRS and is on the Editorial Board for Eyenet, a publication of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. In 2016, Dr Kherani received the Achievement Award from the American Academy of Ophthalmology for her contribution to the field of ophthalmology.
