Dr. Ranieri graduated with a Bachelor of Science from Yale University in 2008 and received her Doctor of Optometry with Honours from Nova Southeastern University in 2016. She was born and raised in Waterloo, and after living in the United States for the past ten years, she is happy to put down roots in Mississauga and join the team at the Queensway Optometric Centre.
Though Dr. Ranieri enjoys providing comprehensive eye care to patients of all ages, her particular areas of interest are ocular pathology and contact lenses. She cultivated this passion while still in Optometry school, where she volunteered her time in Boquete, Panama, providing eye care to an underserved community.
She was also part of the research team that conducted the “Contact Lens Assessment in Youth” study regarding the cornea, contact lenses, and public health. She hopes to continue volunteering her time and helping her community.
Before she began pursuing a career in optometry, Dr. Ranieri was a professional squash player, competing in tournaments around the world and winning the Canadian Women’s Championship. The highlight of her squash career was earning three medals, including a team event gold medal at the Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico in 2008.
In her spare time, Dr. Ranieri enjoys playing sports, including squash, tennis, and soccer. She also enjoys travelling and spending time with her family. More Articles by Miranda Ranieri
