Dr. Almas Khan graduated from University of Miami with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a minor in Chemistry in 2010. During her undergraduate studies, she participated in various research programs and mainly conducted research in glaucoma with Dr. Sanjoy Bhattacharya at Evelyn F. and William L. McKnight Vision Research Center. Alongside, she observed Dr. Terri Rose in her Cornea Service at Bascom Palmer Eye Hospital. Glaucoma research and exposure to optometric clinical care motivated her to pursue optometry.
Dr. Khan graduated with a Doctor of Optometry degree from Nova Southeastern University in 2015. That year, she received An Award for Excellence in Contact Lens Patient Care. She went on and completed a residency in Primary Care with Emphasis in Cornea and Contact Lenses at Nova Southeastern University in 2016. After graduation, she joined Nova Southeastern University as an adjunct faculty member and transitioned into full-time faculty in August 2018. Presently, Dr. Khan is an attending optometric physician in disease and cornea services at The Eye Institute at Broward and Davie locations. She also teaches Low Vision and Optometric Theory & Methods laboratories.
Dr. Khan is currently a candidate for fellowship of the American Academy of Optometry. She is also a member of the American Optometric Association. Her professional interests include specialty contact lens fitting, low vision services and community outreach for local and international communities through optometric care.
