Qualifications and Experience
Dr. Hayter was born in Alexandria, MN, spent his childhood in the Midwest moving from Minnesota, Iowa, and Missouri.

Verified Patient Reviews
In their defense, I was 15 mins late for my appointment and they were incredibly gracious about letting me come in anway. Every one else who came in only seemed to wait 5-10 mins at the most for them to be called back. I was totally fine waiting. Every one was so professional and pleasant. They explained everything clearly and at the end, I was handed my script with a copy of my charges without having to ask. I will go back Thursday for my contact lenses follow up and was told they'll give me that script on Thursday. They just want to make sure it's good.
He got us lots of ideas on cosmetic eye surgery and patiently checked on my power. Excellent bedside manner and good human. Will go next time for an annual visit
It was a well and excellent experience.
Wonderful office and service.
I will definitely keep going there!
Very professional. I was seen within 5 minutes of my scheduled visit.
My visit was a good visit. I would definitely recommend other's to this facility
He was very informative, answered all my questions and was very personable. Tim, the Eye glasses guy, was patient, funny and clearly loves his job! Front Desk personnel were friendly, happy to see you and also personable. They also clearly love their job. Highly recommend this this place to everyone...20 Stars!!!!
Dr. Hayter was extremely courteous and explained every test he was performing as he was doing them. His female assistant (didn't catch her name) was kind and did the first half of tests. His two male assistants, Tim and Josh, were helpful when I needed to pick out a pair of glasses. Tim was by far the most genuine assistant I've encountered when choosing glasses and making sure I had everything that fits my needs. My head/jaw/eyeline is ever so crooked, and he fixed the glasses to where they sctually sit straight on my face!! I never knew that was even possible... Every other place I've gone simply had me pick the out a frame, and that was that. No additional comments or offers when I'd say I work on a computer 40 hours a week and no offers when I'd ask about transition lenses. I'm definitely recommending Dr. Hayter and his team for my mom at least!! Any other friends of mine with glasses will hear about him too!
First time there like 6 months ago. Waited more than 30 min for the doctor. Then I booked a second appointment only to figure out they have moved the office to a new location and do not accept my insurance any more, which is contrary to what they publicly state on Zocdoc, and they never updated all these information. Very disorganized.
It was great will be going back next year.
He is a great doc. Very thorough.
Hi, I appreciate the services. Definitely recommend!
The wait time was due to overbooking. Apparently the Zoodoc has appointment availability that aren't really available. I
The two Doctor Assistants where Awsome they both greeted me with warm smiles and by the name on Appointment time ! And I will highly Recommended Dr. Hatter he has great Rates for non insurance patients .
He is very professional. Other employees are equally professional and accommodating. Works efficiently and is personable. Always a good experience. Thanks to you all.
I was very pleased with Dr.Hayter. He was very professional and very thorough with my exam. I would highly recommend him.
Lit was a very pleasant experience
He is always nice and courteous
Attentive and well informed.
Staff is so friendly even over the phone!
Dr. Hayter and his staff are very professional and friendly. I recently moved to the area and consider myself fortunate to have found a great provider to take care of my vision needs.
We love this office and the doctor.
The visit was okay, however I thought my eyes would be dilated. I thought this was standard for checking to see if I have any major eye health issues?
Caring and very friendly staff. I walked in 20 mins before my scheduled appointment and within 5 mins was already taken back and waited on.
Very clear when I set appointment I wanted glasses, contacts, computer glasses. I only received an examination for glasses... rescheduled again for next week.
I would totally recommend him. He is fast and very good at what he is doing!
The staff was very professional as we walked in we were greeted and attended right away I even came in with two small children and the staff was very helpful and they went out of their way to make sure that the kids would stay calm so the appointment could go as smoothly as possible. The appointment took longer than expected more than likely because of the situation with my vision but the route of all they remain professional and didn't make me feel like they were being they were rushing
Dr. Hayter was all around great! He was very professional and was generally concerned about my needs.
great saw me same day one mmy lunch break
This doctor is nice and have good subject.
Excellent visit from the moment of friendly greeting and smile as soon as we walked in. Everyone is very nice. Office is very beautiful technician doing exam is extremely nice, respectful and pleasant. Dr. Hay ter is very nice doctor. He does throughout exam, explains everything. My Mom is hard of hearing, what make visit much longer than usually. Everyone has been very patient and very nice to my Mom. I have been trulia impressed with high quality service, excellent exam and very warm, welcoming environment. I would recommend to do eye exam in this rest office to EVERYONE!!!
Excellent people, very friendly, nice, respectful. I do not remember such a pleasant visit for a long time. Everyone in the office is extremely pleasant, nice. Dr. Hay ter is excellent. He is doing very detailed exam and explains everything. I had unbelievably great experience coming to this beautiful and full of smiling faces and friendly people. THANK YOU!!! I will certainly recommend checking your vision in this great Eye care center.
Dr. Hayter was great, as was his staff. I would recommend them.
Very professional and polite.
I liked it. :)
Everyone was very nice
They handled my insurance expertly and in no time I was through with my visit. It was quick and efficient but not a rush job. Eyeglass center was next door. That went quick as well. They took the time to explain different types of glasses.
Enjoyed it. Very helpful, and understood what needed to be done. Best eye doc I've had.
Very through. Quick. Polite and helpful staff. No blast of air in my eye. I'm good.
We were greeted by a less than enthusiastic receptionist. Then the tech who performed all the exams on my children did not introduce herself to me or my kids, which is a little unusual when you are working with children. Next, the children were escorted to the doctor's office, which I was never invited to join in on the session. At the end of the exam, I was handed my kids' prescriptions and that was the end of the visit. The doctor never addressed me directly nor did he explain whether my kids' vision was the same, better or worse than the last time we had seen him. He did say goodbye. The office was not overly busy when we had our appointments. I didn't expect a lot of interaction because I know what the visit entails, but I would have hoped that the doctor would be a little more engaging.
Great doctor great staff. My family and I have always had a positive experience. To sum it up friendly and proficient staff.
Professional, genuine, very nice,
it was good.
Dr was great but the wait was long, even though we had an appointment.
He was very good with my son whom normally hates any dr visits
The dr is thorough and will listen to any eye health concerns you have and makes sure you leave well informed. He is very pleasant and kind.
This was the easiest, least stressful allotment I've ever had. The Doctor and his staff were awesome. I will be referring friends and family
front office personnel not knowledgable about online registration. I almost didn't bring my mother in because the lady on the phone insisted that we did not have an appt and I insisted that we did. The Doctor was awesome! Very nice, worked with my mom who has trouble communicating with her Alzheimer's disease.
Dr. Hayter is a good Dr. My son had his glasses the next week.
This has got to be the best doctors visit I have had since moving to DFW 3 years ago. Dr. Hayter's office was a smooth running machine, quick intake and tests and then immediately seen by the doc. He didn't rush me and actually cared if I had any questions. Then when I asked a question about light and how a test worked (not quite what he had in mind I'm sure) he answered me in layman's terms but wholly without making me feel silly about asking. I wish he was my GP.
it was great he has a sense of humor he goes the extra mile to make sure your eyes is healthy by running test i just that my medecaid did not allow me to get checked for contacts so i only under went getting my eyes checked for glasses but had my prescription converted so everything worked out!!!
Excellent service with the latest equipment made for an excellent experience.
Him and his staff were great !!!
Made my daughter feel comfortable. She was pleased.
HE IS GREAT,AND VERY INFORMATIVE!!I WILL DEFINITELY KEEP HIM FOR MANY YEARS TO COME.MY FAMILY HAS A NEW EYECARE PROFESSIONALIST.
I look forward to my annual appointments with Dr. Hayter and his staff. He and his staff are friendly and provide fast, efficient service.
we are really happy with the level of service we received and how thorough the doctor was in explaining things to us. A+ highly recommend.
the visit was fantastic he is very good and patient with kids
The front office staff was awesome and knowledgeable. They helped make sure everything went very smoothly. They also sanitized everything in front of you before they used it or had us use it. Really awesome! Dr. Hayter was very nice and explained things as he did them. This place is also great because it's right next door to Vision Works which has a really good selection of frames.
It was a nice visit. Friendly staff.
Very pleasant visit. Dr. and staff very personable. Won't hesitate to go back, will refer if possible.
Great personality and knows what he is talking about!
He and his staff were very curteous and professional while enjoying the moment to share a couple laughs. I will definitely be returning to his office for my next visit!
Dr. Hayter and his staff are excellent!
My daughter had a great experience with both the staff and the Dr. The staff was retry helpful and outgoing and the doctor was very kind and thorough.. I would recommend this office to all of my family.
I had a great experience. Not only were the ladies in front great but the Dr. Was very outgoing and thorough .... I would definitely go back..
It was ok! Staff was very nice, Doctor was quick and seemed to be in a hurry, not very informative, I had to ask all the questions.
The ladies in the office were great! Dr. Paul Hayter was wonderful with my son and explained exactly what needed to be done.
Very nice guy, thorough, highly recommended
Dr. Hater was very personable and professional. He was very thorough and patient. We will be back, and I'm referring others.
Very professional. Quickly in and out, got my questions answered and my prescription. Very pleased with service.
He was very good and knows what he's doing! The precription he gave me was awesome. I can see so much better and so clearly too! I would highly recommend him!
Professional, thorough, and friendly.
Dr. Hayter and the staff were very friendly. The appointment took less than fifteen mintutes. A++
Got the apppointment for my son. Everyone in the office was very nice and professional. We were in and out but NEVER felt rushed. I would recommend Dr. Paul Hayter to ANYONE!!
He was very nice and personable. He was also willing to work with me as far as letting me trade in contacts from my old prescription for contacts in my new rx. Which saved me a lot of $, and saved me having to throw away a bunch of perfectly good contacts.
Dr. Hayter was excellent
Very professional and personable.
Dr Hayter has a great bedside manner. Very thorough with his exam. I do however feel he would be better served having another doctor working along side him. Eye exams take a considerable amount of time. He was absolutely doing his very best and awesome at multitasking. My dad was there 2 hours total.
He had a very good bedside manner and I could ask him any question I needed to. I felt like I had a very good and thorough exam.
He was very nice and understanding with my nervous 5 year old daughter. I would refer any one of family members and friends to see him.
