- Dr. Jasmintha EllaurieOptometrist & Owner
Dr. Ellaurie grew up in St. Paul, Alberta and moved to Ontario to attend the University of Waterloo where she earned her Bachelor of Honours Science degree in 2004. She then moved to Boston, Massachusetts where she attended The New England College of Optometry and graduated as a member of the Beta Sigma Kappa International Optometric Honours Society in 2008.
Dr. Ellaurie’s training included performing eye exams at Dimock Community Health Center in Boston where she saw a variety of different patients. Next, she focused on the pediatrics, low vision, and contact lens specialties at New England Eye Institute in Boston. Finally, she had the privilege of spending six months at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute (the #1 eye hospital in the US) in Miami, Florida in a rigorous program which gave her extensive experience in ocular disease and allowed her to work directly with many ophthalmologists and optometrists who are at the top of their field.
Dr. Ellaurie is experienced in examining patients of all ages in addition to patients with mental and physical disabilities. She loves being an eye doctor. Her goal has always been to own her own clinic and she was excited to open one in Stouffville. She is a member of the College of Optometrists of Ontario, Canadian Association of Optometrists, Ontario Association of Optometrists, and Eye Recommend and has successfully completed all parts of both the Canadian and American Optometry Board Exams.
Dr. Ellaurie’s volunteer work includes a humanitarian mission to the Dominican Republic to provide free eye exams, prescription glasses, and sunglasses to hundreds of people who did not have access to eye care. She looks forward to going on more missions.
Dr. Ellaurie enjoys dancing, baking, reading, and playing sports (especially tennis and squash).
