Dr. Artika Naidu grew up in Kent, Washington. She attended the University of Washington for her undergraduate degree and later went on to attend THE Ohio State University for her Doctorate in Optometry with honors. Go BUCKS! She completed her residency in ocular disease at The American Lake VA in Tacoma, Washington. Dr. Naidu joins Bridgeport Family Vision Clinic with prior experience in medical eye care and primary eye care in both hospital and private practice settings.
“An eye exam is not just about glasses or contact lenses. It is about assessing the visual system as a whole and ruling out any potential threats to sight whether it is an eye disease or a systemic health condition that can impact vision such as diabetes. Your vision allows you to make a living, to see and remember faces of your loved ones, and to keep your independence. It is important for me to educate my patients on their ocular health findings. With patient understanding comes their ability to make informed decisions to help them take part in maintaining optimal vision and eye health for years to come.”
Dr. Naidu loves the Pacific Northwest and all that it has to offer year around. She enjoys hiking, running with her dog, traveling, camping and quality time with her family and friends. She is excited to join Bridgeport Family Vision Clinic. She is looking forward to connecting with patients to provide comprehensive primary eye care with a special interest in ocular disease diagnosis and management in areas such as glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, acute red eye, cataracts, and macular degeneration.
