Dr. Natalie Potkidis earned a Doctor of Optometry from the University of Waterloo School of Optometry and Vision Science in 2023, after graduating from York University in 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. During her studies at the University of Waterloo, Dr. Potkidis served as the Communication and Marketing Director for the Low Vision Interest Group. Here she encountered many low-vision patients and learned about their experiences, inspiring her to complete her advanced rotation in this field at the School. She completed externships in Niagara Falls and Woodstock, Ontario where she had the opportunity to develop skills in the areas of contact lens fittings, myopia control, and ocular disease management.
When she is not at the office, you can find Dr. Potkidis hiking, practicing yoga, or playing the piano! Dr. Potkidis is excited to join the team and provide quality eye care to the Keswick area.
