Welcome to Johnson Vision Development Center

If you're in the Jackson, TN, area and are in need of vision therapy or eye care for children, Johnson Vision Development Center is here to help. We understand that simply searching “optometrist near me” might not be enough to get you the help and support you're looking for. If you have children with ocular needs, even searching “children eye care near me” may not provide you with enough information. Working with us can help put your mind at ease and help your child see more clearly for the future.

Children's Eye Issues Need Special Treatment

Paula Johnson-Wyatt, OD, FCOVD, is a behavioral optometrist, specializing in the treatment of several areas of vision concern. These areas go beyond standard types of vision correction needs and include:

  • Convergence insufficiency
  • Focusing disorders
  • Eye tracking dysfunctions
  • Reduced depth perception
  • Strabismus (exotropia, esotropia, lazy eye)
  • Amblyopia

The types of vision therapy that are used to treat these issues include treatment for both sensorimotor dysfunction, and visual perceptual deficiencies. Problems in these areas affect reading, sports, and school performance, along with other areas of life. When treated and corrected early, though, it is far easier to move past these kinds of problems and into better vision for children as they grow and move into adulthood.

Choose a Children's Vision Specialist

Johnson Vision Development Center is the only pediatric vision clinic in Jackson, TN, that specializes in optometric vision and eye health evaluations. We also offer vision therapy for binocular vision dysfunctions, sports vision training, and neuro-optometric rehabilitation (brain injury, traumatic birth). Whether your children need more serious vision correction or are only dealing with a minor concern that can be more easily addressed, we are here to make sure they (and you) get needed support.

As a children's vision specialist, we focus on kids of all ages. That includes eye exams for babies and the routine exams that school-aged children need to stay healthy and see well. We also examine and help adults with special needs or traumatic brain injury who are referred to us.

Don't Settle When It Comes to Eye Health

Contact us today and let us get you and your children the support they need to see more clearly and correct a host of vision problems. Many of these problems can be handled more easily when they are caught early and treated promptly. If left untreated, they can continue to worsen. They may also cause problems for your children in other areas of life. The right eye care for children is a crucial component to reducing that risk. By working with us, you'll be giving your children the help they need to get a better start in life.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Best Doc and staff around for your kids! My four have been using Dr. Paula and her wonderful staff for 10yrs!"
    Piper Reynolds Jenkins
  • "The knowledge and expertise this staff delivered was top notch. Our 3 year old was a little nervous going in, and any tension she had immediately disappeared when we arrived. Everyone was so caring and fun, she didn't have time to have doubts! The doctor took time with us to explain everything in full detail, and we all enjoyed our experience there! I would recommend Johnson Vision to anyone needing pediatric vision care."
    Amy Freeman Mallette
  • "My son had to have vision therapy when he was younger. I had never heard of such a thing, but now know this is something definitely worth doing for your child if diagnosed to need it. His hand/eye coordination improved and much more. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. They are willing to do whatever they possibly can to help you and your child."
