Johnson Vision Development Center is Jackson's only pediatric vision clinic specializing in optometric vision and eye health evaluations, vision therapy for binocular vision dysfunctions, sports vision training, and neuro- optometric rehabilitation (brain injury, traumatic birth).  We are a children's vision specialists, but see kids of all ages, with services including eye exams for babies and yearly routine exams for school aged children. We will also examine any special needs adults or adults who are referred for traumatic brain injury.

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.
