About me


Hi! I'm Dr. Amanda Heyward, owner and optometrist at Midwood Eye. I'm a proud Villa Heights resident and I aim to bring personalized eye care to our local neighborhoods - Plaza Midwood, NoDa, Villa Heights - and all of Charlotte. When I'm not in the office, I enjoy running, cooking, and spending time with my husband and our two dogs.
