Doctors & Staff

Meet the experienced and friendly doctor and staff who make Northwest Ohio Eyecare a leading provider of vision care products and services in Toledo.

Donna Mahaffey, O.D.

Dr. Mahaffey has been practicing since 1994. She is from Kirtland, Ohio, which is a suburb of Cleveland on the east side. She has a biology degree from The University of Toledo, and a Doctor of Optometry degree from The Ohio State University College of Optometry. She began her career at E.B. Brown at Franklin Park and Foundation Park in 1994, then went to Boardman, Ohio, in March of 1995 to work at Northeast Ohio Eyecare. She came back to Toledo in October of 1995 to start her own practice, Northwest Ohio Eyecare, which was then located in the back of Lenscrafters. She was at that location for 13 years, then started to set up her new and current location at 5550 W. Central Avenue. She has two children, Ethan and Sophie, and her husband, Ty, is an attorney in Sylvania. She also has a mastiff named Kya and a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel named Sadie Mae. Dr. Mahaffey loves to work with her patients, and has many that have been with her for 20 years!


Katelyn has been with our practice since 2013. She started as a technician in pretesting, but soon decided that Optometry would be a good career for her. She is now attending Miami University of Ohio in pre-med, and is with us for summers, breaks, and some weekends. She is so excited to help our patients, as it is helping her get experience for her future!


Haley has been with our practice since 2014. She also started in pretest, but now works throughout the office, especially at the front desk. She will be attending Kent State University in the fall of 2016, but will be working remotely from her dorm room! Such dedication!


Tameka has been working with Dr. Mahaffey for many years. She started with her in 2000, and worked for several years before leaving to raise her children and be trained elsewhere to be an optician. She returned to the new office in 2012 and runs the front office. She loves to help our patients!


Jessica is our accountant. She has been with us for several years, too, and is in charge of insurance payments and billing. She even helps on the phones while she is here!


Ethan is one of Dr. Mahaffey’s favorites, as he is her son! He is a senior at St. Francis deSales High School, and helps out at the office on some weekends and weeknights.


Andre is relatively new to our practice. He is usually working in the pretest area, but is also found working with patients with their orders. He is a student at the University of Toledo in his senior year, majoring in Public Relations. We believe he will be great in that career, because our patients love him!


Gina is our newest addition! She graduated from Central Catholic High School and The University of Toledo in Communications. She works with our patients in pretest and in glasses selections. We are glad she became a part of our team!


Freddy graduated from The University of Toledo with an accounting degree this past year. He is helping with the office accounting and studying for his C.P.A. exam!
