Dr. Jackie McCall

Taking a Team Approach to Your Eye Care

Dr. Jackie McCall grew up in the small farming community of Max, North Dakota. She went to undergraduate school in Bismarck, North Dakota at the University of Mary and attended Southern California College of Optometry in Fullerton, California. There, she earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Visual Science in 1984 and received her Optometric Degree in 1986.


She moved to the Brainerd Lakes area in January of 1987 and worked as an independent contractor until December of 1999. Dr. McCall then decided to go into private practice and opened Midwest Family Eye Center in Baxter. In October of 2001, she opened a satellite office in Staples.


Dr. McCall is a member of the Minnesota Optometric Association and the American Optometric Association as well as a provider in the InfantSee program, which provides comprehensive eye exams to infants.


"Optometry is a great profession," said Dr. McCall. “It is wonderful working so closely with people on a daily basis. I feel it is a very rewarding career, because I am dealing with the perfection and preservation of vision for a lifetime of sight.”


"I would like to personally thank my patients for their continued confidence in Midwest Family Eye Center and extend my welcome to any new patients."
