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.
Dr. Madeline Dau is a Jacksonville native, growing up here and attending Bishop Kenny High School before studying Nutrition at the University of Florida. Madeline has always cared about helping to improve people's lives and felt she could make a significant impact by learning to care for vision and health. She was excited to return to the area after graduating with her Doctor of Optometry degree from Southern College of Optometry (SCO) in Memphis, TN in May of 2015. While at school, she went on medical mission trips to provide free eye exams in underserved areas in Jamaica, Belarus, Belize, and Colombia with other SCO students, including her husband, Jordan Dau. Since graduating she has been a member of the Northeast Florida Optometric Society, Florida Optometric Society, and American Optometric Society. While working in Jacksonville the last couple years, Madeline has worked with several different practices but now is excited to start something new and shares her husband's vision for a high-quality practice that truly cares for their patients like a family. Ever passionate about eyecare, she looks forward to taking care of the Bartram Springs area and beyond. Her areas of interest include dry eye treatment and contact lens fittings, including myopia prevention. When she is not busy with her precious daughter, she enjoys walking her corgis, Wrex and Sevro, and is very excited for the birth of their second daughter, due in November.
