Dr. Jennifer Sowers is a graduate of Michigan College of Optometry at Ferris State University and Grand Valley State University. During her training she took rotations at the Grand Rapids Veterans Affairs Outpatient Clinic, WoW Vision Therapy, Grand Rapids Ophthalmology and the St. Mary’s Diabetes and Endocrine Center. Her professional interests include pediatrics, glaucoma management and medical treatment of dry eye syndrome.
Dr. Sowers became interested in pediatric vision care after discovering her own son needed glasses at 17 months old. Once he started wearing glasses, his (already great) motor and social skills were markedly improved. Because of this experience Dr. Sowers is a strong advocate for the AOA’s InfantSEE program which provides no-cost vision exams to infants between 6 and 12 months of age.
