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, post-concussion and acquired brain injuries. The prevention and early diagnosis of ocular disease is important to preserve optimal vision function throughout our lifetimes.

The use of ocular nutritional supplements, dry eye therapy and testing for the early signs of macular degeneration are important services provided by Dr Jenks. Dr Jenks also provides vision rehabilitation services for patients who have experienced severe loss of vision due to retinal disease and macular degeneration. These services include neuro-optometric vision therapy, syntonic light therapy, optical lenses and filters that enhance vision performance.

Dr Jenks is a member of the American Optometric Association, Missouri Optometric Association, Optometric Extension Program Foundation, College of Optometrists in Vision Development, College of Syntonic Optometry, Vestibular Disorders Association and the American Academy of Orthokeratology and Myopia Control.
