Dr. Schuetz attended Indiana University School of Optometry, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. She received her B.S. from Indiana University as well, after completing the majority of her undergraduate education at Millikin University in Decatur, IL. She has been practicing in Carmel and Zionsville for almost 20 years.
Dr. Schuetz is actively involved in the community. She participates in monthly vision screenings at the Trinity Free Clinic (an organization dedicated to serving the health care needs of the uninsured and underinsured low income residents of Hamilton County) and was one of the first optometrists in central Indiana to be part of the InfantSee program (a free vision and ocular health evaluation for infants 6-12 months). As well, every school year, Dr. Schuetz provides free vision screenings at multiple schools throughout the Indianapolis area. This provides the opportunity for over a thousand children to be screened for eye health issues.
Dr. Schuetz has lectured internationally on myopia control, and is passionate in reducing dependency on glasses and contact lenses in all her patients.
At Little Eyes Pediatric Eye Care, Dr. Schuetz completes eye health exams for children from infants to 13 years of age. Here, she created a program called Double Vision for every pair of complete glasses sold, a monetary donation is given to the Indiana Blind Children’s Foundation (whose mission is to invest in the future of Indiana’s children who are blind and impaired in ways that meaningfully enhance their education and lives). Little Eyes also has a program allowing you to donate your old eyeglasses to the Carmel Lion’s Club (which are then distributed back into the community to those in need).
Dr. Schuetz has been published in the Independent Doctors of Optometric Care journal as well as other outlets discussing important issues with regard to pediatric eye health such as UV rays, sports vision, importance of annual eye exams and vision correction.
Active in the American Optometric Association, the Indiana Optometric Association, and the Central Society of the IOA, Dr. Schuetz stays aware of the latest issues in optometry and how to provide the best patient care.
