Dr. Jordan Dau was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska and graduated from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln in 2011 with a B.S. in Biosystems Engineering but realized during his schooling that his true calling was to change people’s sight, one eye at a time. He attended Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, Tennessee the following year, and graduated in May 2015. While in school he met his beautiful wife whom he followed to Jacksonville, Florida and has been practicing since in a variety of settings. It didn’t take long for Dr. Dau to envision a family setting where he could offer spectacular patient care and superior products, and opened Dau Family Eye Care in October 2017. He loves working with patients of all ages treating all their eye care needs including ocular disease, fitting contact lenses and prescribing glasses. Dr. Dau has a true passion for knowledge and continues to add cutting edge technology such as Myopia Control and Neurolens, thus providing patients exceptional care. Dr. Dau was involved in multiple medical mission trips to areas of less fortunate countries, providing free eye exams and glasses for local populations and is looking to participating in more in the years to come. He is currently a member of the Northeast Florida Optometric Association and the American Optometric Association. He remains a true Husker fan but is learning to tolerate the SEC and the Jaguars. Jordan enjoys reading a good book, playing games, or trying out a new recipe with his loving wife and beautiful daughter and looks forward to the arrival of their second daughter later this year.

During all four years of school, Dr. Balo worked in a Chicago clinic dedicated to providing free eye exams to underserved school-aged children. Dr. Balo also had the privilege to join with optometrists and fellow students for three weeklong service trips to provide free eye exams and glasses to poor populations in Honduras and Belize.
