Jennifer Speight, Director, Lead Vision Therapist

Director & Vision Therapist

Jennifer began working at Advanced Family Eye Care in 2004. She received her Paraoptometric certification in 2006 and received certification from the Optometric Extension Program for vision therapy following. In 2011, Jennifer worked alongside Dr. Amanda Barker to open SightWork, a dedicated vision therapy clinic. Over the last seven years, she has committed herself to aggressive training in order to provide therapy to individuals with oculomotor and visual processing delays. Jennifer has had the pleasure of working with hundreds of patients to improve and regain skills that allow an improved quality of life and function. “What I like best about vision therapy is seeing my patients achieve goals and realize their success. I love that what I do helps not only improve visual skills but often impacts patients physically, mentally, functionally and emotionally in such amazing ways.”

Cara Mercer

Vision Therapist

I  have been in the optometric field since 2005. I have worked with amazing doctors to assist patients in achieving and maintaining good ocular health and vision. One of my primary roles involved working with patients that had corneal diseases or corneal transplants and assisting them with their specialty contact lenses. I have enjoyed watching patients be able to engage their lives again by being able to see through new lenses. I am very excited to be a part of this team and continue to help patients "see" through new eyes! I enjoy camping and kayaking with my family in my free time.
