Welcome to Swagel Wootton Hiatt Eye Center.
We have a proud heritage of serving patients for over 50 years in the East Valley. We are a busy practice, providing us the experience to provide you with true expertise and refined skills in the care of your eyes. Despite our high volume of patients, we try our best to provide personalized care to each patient. We treat our own families and treat our patients as family. In doing so, we have emergency add-on patients daily. Our clinic and surgical schedules are therefore unpredictable. We do our best to see every patient in a timely manner; the tentative nature of our schedules often makes doing so challenging. One should expect a full eye exam (with dilation, etc) to take about 2 hours. Additional testing, our unpredictable schedule, and recent government requirements (computerized medical records, etc.) may make your wait time longer. Realize we are doing everything we can for everyone we can. We appreciate your patience and look forward to seeing you today.

We are an eye care practice devoted to enhancing and correcting your eyesight by using state-of-the-art technology that will result in better vision, and a better quality of life.
