Dr. Austin Potter grew up in a large family (Dr. Potter is the 4th of 10 children) which taught him the importance of working together and serving others in his family and in the community. Dr. Potter initially became interested in the field of Optometry during his high school years at Greenfield Central High School when a close family member was in need of a corneal transplant. It sparked an interest in helping others with the gift of vision. Dr. Potter went on to Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana to complete his undergraduate and Optometry degree.
After graduation, Dr. Potter wanted to remain close to family and serve the community that he grew up in. He worked in a practice in New Palestine for the past 5 years, when he made the decision to start his own practice.
Dr. Potter lives in Hancock County with his wife and 3 children.
