Dr. Natalie Chai


Dr. Natalie Chai was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta. She attended the University of Alberta before earning her joint Bachelor’s Degree in Vision Science and Doctor of Optometry with distinction from Pacific University College of Optometry in Forest Grove, Oregon, in 2014. She recently earned her Fellowship in the Canadian College of Specialties in Optometry (FCCSO) in May 2023 which demonstrates her successful completion of the rigorous requirements to become a Fellow. With this designation, Dr. Chai will be using this as a stepping stone to further pursue her joint Specialization Designation in Ocular Surface Disease (Dry Eye Disease) and Specialty Contact Lenses in the next few months. There’s still a lot of work ahead for Dr. Chai!

Before taking a leap of faith with her husband to create and open Trifecta Optometry, Dr. Chai has had experience in all modalities of optometry serving Edmonton and surrounding areas for the last 9 years, refining her knowledge and skills. Over time, it was evident there were gaps that inhibited the way she envisioned providing a high level of care for her patients. The old adage of “being in charge of your own destiny” was realized and action was taken to bring that to fruition with Trifecta Optometry together with her husband.

Being married to an optometrist and in business together, this journey has been the ultimate act of partnership but they wouldn’t have it any other way. Outside of “shop talk”, Dr. Chai places high value on health and fitness, her faith, personal growth, travel and family. She is looking forward to starting a family soon.
