Meet your Doctor

Samantha Jahnke, OD

Dr. Jahnke began her career as an optician before becoming an optometrist and has over 15 years of experience in eye care. Dr. Jahnke decided to open inVista Optical in summer of 2016 in order to create a more patient-focused brand. Dr. Jahnke did not want her patients to feel like just another pair of eyes, but apart of the inVista family. She truly listens to her patients needs and tries to meet them as best as she can. She is currently accepting new patients!


Dr. Jahnke received her external training at various medical clinics and practices across the Midwest including the John-Kenyon American Eye Institute in Louisville, Kentucky, Fort Knox Army Base-Ireland Hospital, and Indianapolis Eye Care Center. It was at these clinics where she received extensive training in fitting contact lenses and diagnosis and treatment of ocular diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and cataracts.

Dr. Jahnke graduated from Indiana University School of Optometry in 2013. During her four years in school she was an active member in the American Optometric Student Association and a member of the Beta Sigma Kappa National Optometric Society.

She completed her undergraduate studies at Indiana University, where she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition Science. She is an active member of the Optometric Nutrition Society, which has allowed her to combine her passions for both eye care and nutrition. This allows her to discuss the importance of a proper diet as it relates to ocular and systemic health. She has had continuing education training to recommend the best ocular supplements for the treatments of various eye conditions, such as dry eye disease. 


Dr. Jahnke lives in Indianapolis with husband, Derek and their daughters, Emmeline and Lillian. You can catch them walking their dog, Kiki, around the Old Northside and downtown Indy pretty much any time the weather is nice. In her free time, Dr. Jahnke likes to enjoy the local community by shopping at local stores, eating at the many nearby restaurants on Mass Ave and enjoying a cold brew next door at St. Joseph brewery.
