He has been dedicated to fulfilling Austin’s eye care needs for the UT community for over a decade. As an active member of the American Optometric Association, the Texas Optometry Association and the Central Texas Optometric Society, Dr. Gajda is passionate about providing patients with the most up-to-date care. A true Midwesterner at heart, he is a HUGE sports fan and claims his hometown’s very own Cleveland sports teams and Ohio State Buckeyes as his favorites. In addition to being Austin’s leading optometrist, he considers himself an automobile enthusiast and in his spare time, enjoys seeking out fine craft beers (yes, he is a beer snob), outdoor activities, listening to music, traveling, and spending time with his dog, Tucker.
