The Doctor

Dr. Darryl Mathewson is originally from Bluffton, Ohio, where he graduated from high school in 1979. He then attended The Ohio State University for his undergraduate studies. He earned his Doctor of Optometry degree in 1986 after graduating from The Ohio State University College of Optometry. In December of 1986, Dr. Mathewson purchased the optometry practices of Woodrow (Lee) McCartney and Steve Franz in Defiance, Ohio, and began his practice at his current location on Fourth Street. In 1998, he reconstructed his office building into a new modern facility.

Dr. Mathewson believes that one of his greatest attributes to his patients comes from the fact that he grew up in a small town. There he experienced the importance of personalized care, where each person is treated as an individual. Therefore, he strives to be compassionate and understanding with every patient. He also enjoys educating them about their vision and invites them to ask questions so that they can have a better knowledge of their vision. Dr. Mathewson is a member of several professional organizations, including the American Optometric Association, the Ohio Optometric Association and the Contact Lens Section of The American Optometric Association. He is also a member of the Alumni Associations of The Ohio State University, The Ohio State University College of Optometry and the Epsilon Psi Epsilon Professional Fraternity.
