Welcome to Jenks Vision Center in beautiful downtown Jenks, Oklahoma. Early 2019 We have had some exciting changes! Dr. Tom Vanderpool retired to work his charity Vision for Children. He has left the practice in Good hands. Dr. Kyle Tate of Insight Eyecare Glenpool has great plans for Jenks Vision Center.

We began the update with a full building remodel inside and out! This has provided an additional exam room which allows us to help more people! All of the exam equipment has been updated including a change to electronic medical records. We are adding more testing equipment to better care for eye disease including getting rid of the dreaded "Air Puff." Dont worry, with all the new equipment we are increasing our ability to spend face to face time with our patients.

Jenks Vision Center is a full-service eye and vision care provider.  We accept eye emergencies, as well as, scheduled appointments. Patients throughout the Tulsa area come to Jenks Vision Center for personal attention and professional care.  We explain every  procedure and answer any questions you may have.  We work with vision insurance providers and offer financing options.

Our one-on-one approach to optometry makes us the eye care provider of choice.  We offer the following services: complete eye exams, contact lenses, glasses, glaucoma testing, and pre- and post-operative care.

"Our Mission is to improve every life at every encounter"
