Meet the Doctors

the doctors

Dr. Mike Richey, Dr. Kathy Haivala and the entire staff at Spearfish Eye Care Center are thankful for the opportunity to take part in your family's eye care needs. We recognize you have a choice for your eye care needs and are committed to exceeding all your expectations.

  • Kathy Haivala, OD

    Dr. Haivala obtained her Undergrad Degree from USD in Vermillion and graduated from Southern California of Optometry in 1991. Dr. Haivala is originally from Mitchell and her husband Bryan is from Belle Fourche. They love mountain biking in the Black Hills, so they moved back to South Dakota in 1993 and she joined Dr. Richey’s practice. It’s hard to believe we have been in practice together for 26 years! She and Bryan have three adult children Jake, Sam and Sadie. She is a member of the American Optometric Association and is locally involved in the Zonta Club.
