Dr. Jerry Jenks was born in Kansas City, Missouri. He grew up in Weston, Missouri, a small rural community in Platte County. He is a second-generation optometrist who began his career practicing with his father, Dr. Donald Jenks in Platte City, Missouri. Dr. Jenks graduated from West Platte High School before attending the University of Missouri in Columbia. After completing his undergraduate requirements, he went on to complete his Doctor of Optometry at Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, Tennessee.

During his clinical rounds, Dr. Jenks became especially interested in Geriatric Eye Care and Vision Therapy. As a result, after graduation he joined his father's practice and began providing mobile eye care services to residents in nursing facilities as well as expanding vision therapy services to help children with vision related learning problems.

Dr. Jenks has a special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of binocular vision problems that are associated with vision and learning, ADHD, computer eye fatigue, sports vision performance, post-concussion syndrome and acquired brain injuries. The prevention and early diagnosis of ocular disease is important to preserve optimal vision function throughout our lifetimes.

Nutrition counseling and supplements, dry eye therapy and testing for the early signs of macular degeneration and glaucoma are important services provided by Dr Jenks. His clinic also provides low vision rehabilitation services for patients who have experienced severe loss of vision due to these neuro-degenerative retinal diseases. These services include neuro-optometric vision therapy, syntonic light therapy, prismatic lenses and filters that compensate for binocular vision misalignment and enhance vision performance.

Dr Jenks is a member of the American Optometric Association, Missouri Optometric Association, Neuro Optometric Rehabilitation Association, International Sports Vision Association, College of Optometrists in Vision Development, College of Syntonic Optometry, Vestibular Disorders Association, Optometric Extension Program Foundation and the American Professional Society of ADHD and Related Disorders.

Dr. Jenks is extremely knowledgeable and thorough during his exam. I saw him for BVD and he took 2 1/2 hours to complete my exam, making sure he reviewed everything with me from my history to treatment and explained it all very well. I walked out feeling very confident in the game plan moving forward. He even concocted up a pair of trial "glasses" for me to wear until my glasses come in. All of his staff was so friendly and welcoming and they have a great selection of frames to choose from.

There is so much technology to see all parts of my eyes. Dr. Jenks explained the pictures of my entire eye and showed me why I need to return in a few months to compare some cloudy spots in the back of my eye near the stem that goes to the brain that we would like to dissipate. The office staff are all very good at their responsibilities. Dr. Jenks’ and Nancy’s kids and mine went to school together. I highly recommend for a full service!

Our 8 year old son has suffered with visual difficulty and had recently been diagnosed with mild amblyopia (lazy eye) from a different optometrist, with no intervention prescribed. We noticed attention and focus issues were present in school, so went to Outreach Vision based on a social media posting of one of his patients doing eye therapy (something totally new to us). From the first visit with Dr. Jenks and his staff, where they did a variety of incredibly thorough assessments that our son had not gone through before, and briefly chatting with Dr Jenks about the care plan moving forward, we felt like so many of the dots we had been trying to connect were being addressed! Outreach Vision staff took their time to understand and work with our unique challenges. Now, several months later, and after regular in home and in office therapy sessions, our son improved his depth perception, visual acuity, and eye tracking by leaps and bounds. He was also (finally) fitted with glasses that actually fit him and would positively impact his vision. He even has improved his balance and gross motor movements. We are so thankful to Dr Jenks and Erin (the Vision Therapist, who is amazing with kids!), as well as Nancy, who answered all of our enrollment and appointment questions. Therapy at Outreach Vision has literally changed the way our child sees and interacts with the world around him. We highly recommend Outreach Vision!

It was such a pleasure to have someone care, and help find a solution to my problems. The difference in having the Binocular Vision Disorder fixed has been tremendous. It has changed the way I sleep, my energy levels, and mental awareness.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! Extremely happy with Dr. Jenks and Staff. Have had vision problems all my life and each dr had their own view of what was causing it.. but no one was able to figure it out or resolve it until now. Dr Jenks not only figured it out but resolved it!! VERY THROUGH exam and worth the 3 hour drive! Nancy is amazing also! So helpful, upbeat and pleasant! Look forward to returning to get my glasses. Also thanks for the lunch recommendations! They were perfect!
