Our Doctors

Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision—many of which do not always have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses, both as eyeglass lenses and contact lenses.

Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

Meet our doctors:

Dr. Jacob Schmitt, O.D.

Jake introDr. Jacob Schmitt grew up in Newburgh, Indiana. His interest in the visual system began after learning his grandfather went completely blind in one eye from glaucoma. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology/Pre-Optometry from The University of Southern Indiana in Evansville in 2007.
Dr. Schmitt then headed south to the land of barbeque and blues where he graduated Cum Laude from Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN in 2011.
Dr. Schmitt is a licensed doctor of optometry and has passed all parts of the national board examinations required for licensure by the State of Indiana. His practice is located within Lenscrafters in Easland Mall. He is happily married to his high school sweet heart, Jessica, and has three wonderful children, Liam, Anderson, and Margo. In his spare time Dr. Schmitt enjoys, hunting, farming, motorcycles, and tinkering in his workshop.

Dr. Stefan Hanish, O.D.


Stefan HanishDr. Stefan Hanish grew up in East Lansing, Michigan, where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Management from Michigan State University. Dr. Hanish then attended Indiana University School of Optometry, obtaining his Doctor of Optometry degree in 2018.

Hanish started his clinical rotations at Talley Eye Institute in Evansville, where he trained closely with optometrists and ophthalmic surgeons treating corneal disorders, cataracts, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other advanced diseases. He continued his training at Atwater Eye Care Center in Bloomington and Indianapolis Eye Care Center in Indianapolis where he worked in the primary care, contact lens, pediatric, low vision, and advance disease clinics. Dr. Hanish finished his training at Evansville VA Health Care Center, where he provided a wide range of optometric care for our country’s veterans. Before practicing in Evansville and moving closer to family, Dr. Hanish provided full-spectrum optometry care at a private practice in Indianapolis.

Hanish’s passion for optometry began in high school where he was introduced to orthokeratology as a research patient, which allowed him to play sports without wearing glasses or contact lenses. Wanting to follow in his dad’s footsteps as a physician, he decided optometry provided the ideal combination of general healthcare and individual patient relationships.

Dr. Stefan Hanish and his wife, Dr. Nicole Hanish, reside in Evansville. In his spare time he loves sports, staying active, and spending time with friends and family.
