Provide eye healthcare services and vision care products in an environment that exceeds the expectations of every patient that walks through our doors. We are committed to providing each patient and his/her family members with a personalized, consistent, and enriching experience.
Jacob Hayward, O.D.
Dr. Hayward spent a majority of his life twenty minutes north of DeWitt in Maquoketa, IA. After graduating from high school in Maquoketa, he received his undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of Iowa.
He then went on to complete his Doctor of Optometry (OD) degree at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, which included rotations at Cochran VA Medical Center as well as multiple sites throughout the St. Louis metro area.
While in St. Louis for optometry school, Dr. Hayward met and soon married his best friend, Caitlin, in October of 2012. The Hayward's recently welcomed their two sons Miles & Merrick into their family and have made it their mission to make them smile, no matter how stupid they have to act to make it happen.
Together, they enjoy engaging with the DeWitt community through its various local events, restaurants, and organizations.
“My goal for each patient is for him or her to walk out of the eye examination feeling assured that all concerns were answered completely and the care received exceeded expectations.”
