New Haven Optical, LLC
Thomas E. Baker O.D.
1318 Minnich Road
New Haven, IN 46774
Tucked away in the Lutheran Health Plaza on the corner of Minnich Road and Highway 30E you will find New Haven Optical, LLC. Inside you will find not only an array of eyeglass frames, but a group of people that are very committed to healthy eyes for your family. Attending Indiana University in Bloomington, Dr. Baker was working on a Chemistry Degree. As he considered several career options which he found interesting, Dr. Baker, in the end, chose to be an Optometrist.
Dr. Baker was born in Bloomington as his parents were both students there. He said, "When my Dad graduated, his first job was in Ft. Wayne, and so they moved to New Haven."
Being the oldest of five children, Dr. Baker shared that his four siblings were delivered by Dr. Hetzer, a doctor in New Haven at that time. When Dr. Baker was still young their family moved out to the country; on the southwest side of Fort Wayne.
In 1987, which was Dr. Baker's senior year in college, he discovered that Dr. Bennett a new Optometrist in Decatur was looking for an associate. Joining that practice, Dr. Baker moved back into the area just north of New Haven. Then in 1994 Dr. Baker opened New Haven Optical.
New Haven Optical is very much a family practice. Dr. Baker sees patients of all ages and will do eye exams on everybody. Dr. Baker said, "I have one family that comes up from Decatur. When they come in, it is kind of neat because at one time there are four generations of women all sitting in my waiting area."
