Dr. Nadia Lypka was born and raised in Balcarres, Saskatchewan. Upon completion of high school, she attended the University of Saskatchewan for two years before transferring to the Doctor of Optometry program at the University of Waterloo. She graduated on the Dean’s Honour List in 1998.
Dr. Lypka moved back to Saskatoon and began practicing full scope optometry at Family Focus Eyecare. She enjoys seeing patients of all ages and has a special interest in ocular disease management and multifocal contact lens fitting. The most rewarding part of her job is the connections she makes with her patients.
She is married to Dr. Darren Schamber, also an optometrist in Saskatoon, and has two sons, Andrew and Luke. She has been actively involved in sports throughout her life but now spends most of her time as a spectator at her children’s activities. She enjoys lifting weights and practicing yoga as well as spending time out in her garden.
