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 on the east side of Cleveland. 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 opened her current location at 5550 W. Central Avenue. She has two children, Ethan and Sophie. Her husband, Ty, is an attorney in Sylvania. She also has an English 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 23 years!


Haley has been with our practice since 2014. She started in pretest, but now works throughout the office, especially at the front desk and in billing. She has been attending Kent State University since the fall of 2016, and will sometimes be working remotely from her dorm room! Such dedication! She recently went to Paris, France, for additional training for her major of fashion at Kent State.


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 graduate of St. Francis deSales High School, and helps out at the office on weekends and some weeknights. He makes many of our in-house glasses, too.


Jadd has been with us since a year ago. He, too, graduated from St. Francis deSales High School, and is currently at the University of Toledo majoring in exercise science. He comes to us from Perrysburg, where he spends his extra time with his family. He is also a great soccer player!


Jake has been at the office for two years. He is another SFS Knight! He attended Lourdes College last year, then transferred to the University of Toledo where he is majoring in education and minoring in films.


Latasha has been at our office for several years. She is often in our pretesting area, and is most often doing quality control on our incoming orders of glasses and contacts. She loves being an aunt, and enjoys yoga!


Jen has been here for almost two years, too. She has two SFS Knights that are still in high school, and are very involved in sports. She mainly works with insurance authorizations and patient communications at our front desk.
