Dr. Natalie Lindsey-Milam was born and raised in Arkansas. She passed through Kansas for a few years where she met her future husband, but she got to Texas as fast as she could and has proudly called it home for well-over 30 years.
She received her Bachelor’s degree from Baylor University with a major in biology and a double-minor in chemistry and Spanish. She graduated with her Doctor of Optometry degree with Honors from the University of Houston College of Optometry. Two years after obtaining her Doctorate, she completed additional certification as an Optometric Glaucoma Specialist.
Dr. Lindsey-Milam lived in Houston nearly 20 years before moving to the Austin area. Her Houston patients sought her out in Austin in hopes of continuing their eye care with her. She has acquired many years of valuable experience in both private and commercial practice settings as well as caring for our nation’s Veterans in a supervisory position at the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs. While at the V.A., she was also Adjunct Clinical Faculty of the University of the Incarnate Word Rosenberg School of Optometry.
Outside her time at work, Dr. Lindsey-Milam has spent years of volunteering on medical missions stateside to the homeless of New Orleans and Houston and to the victims of Hurricane Katrina as well as internationally on numerous trips to Mexico and Guatemala with various organizations.
Besides providing comprehensive eye care including medical treatment and the diagnosis and management of ocular disease, Dr. Lindsey-Milam has found that correcting a patient’s vision as best as possible with glasses and contact lenses to be the most rewarding aspect of optometry.
She maintains active memberships in American Optometric Association, Texas Optometric Association, Central Texas Optometric Society, Fellowship of Christian Optometrists, Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity, Baylor Line Foundation, and University of Houston Alumni Association.
In her free time, Dr. Lindsey-Milam enjoys following college football teams (especially her alma mater— Sic ‘em Bears!—and the UT Longhorns if they’re not playing Baylor) and attending games, traveling to various vacation spots around the country, river tubing, snow skiing, motorcycle trips with her husband, volunteering at church, and Bible study.
