Meet Our Optometrist
Dr. Rina Sahi is an optometrist in Edmonton providing complete eye care services for the surrounding communities for the last 15 years.
She received her degree in optometry from the New England College of Optometry, in Boston, Massachusetts. She trained in various hospitals in Boston, New Hampshire, China and Baltimore. She has had the privilege of volunteering by providing examinations, glasses and treatment for under-served populations in the Dominican Republic, the greater Boston community and small villages in Tanzania. Dr. Sahi believes strongly in giving back to her profession by volunteering for the Optometric Association.
Dr. Sahi works hard to stay current on the latest advances in eye health and vision care and regularly attends continuing education seminars and advanced training courses and as a result patients receive the most modern and progressive vision care available. As a licensed optometrist, Dr. Sahi provides exams, diagnoses, and treatments of all disorders that affect the eye or vision. She has a special interest in family practice, ocular disease, glaucoma co-management, postoperative care, pediatric and diabetic eye care. She is fluent in English, Punjabi and Hindi.
Dr. Sahi enjoys spending time with her husband, and two young children when she’s not at Eye Nine Optometry.
Dr. Larson joined Eye Nine Optometry in July 2022, with over 8 years of experience. Originally from Daysland, (near Camrose), Alberta, his need for glasses in 5th grade sparked his interest in sightand vision correction. He graduated with honors as Valedictorian from Daysland High School and went on to complete his Bachelor of Science at the University of Alberta in 2010. In 2014, he graduated from Midwestern University Arizona College of Optometry with an induction into the Optometric Honors Society Beta Sigma Kappa.
During his final year of rotations, he learned from a wide variety of optometry specialties. He spent one summer in Fort Collins, Colorado, at a pediatric and vision therapy practice; the fall in San Clemente, California, at an OD/MD surgical site specializing in geriatrics and cosmetic surgery; the winter in Glendale, Arizona, at a geriatric and primary care private practice; the spring in Jacksonville, Florida, at a specialty anterior segment disease practice with an emphasis on corneal and glaucoma surgery. He particularly enjoys treating and managing dry eye as it affects so many people.
Dr. Larson is always interested in learning something new. He likes spending time outdoors in the summer hiking, biking, camping and boating. In the winter, he takes pleasure in watching and playing hockey, and spending time with family and friends. At Eye Nine Optometry and Louie Eyecare Centre, he particularly enjoys interacting with patients and working with them to find out the best way to take care of their vision and ocular health needs.
