Sunflower Vision Development Center

Sunflower Vision Development Center works with children and adults who have vision problems that interfere with their ability to read, to learn, to comprehend, and even to pay attention. Sunflower Vision Development Center is a specialty optometric private practice devoted exclusively to providing Vision Therapy and Vision Rehabilitation to correct vision problems that cannot be successfully corrected with glasses, contact lenses, and/or surgery alone.

We are dedicated to treating the hundreds of children and adults suffering from undiagnosed vision problems; lazy, crossed, or wandering eyes; and compromised visual systems as a result of a developmental delay, developmental disability, traumatic brain injury, stroke, or neurological disorder.

Our commitment is to serve all children and adults whose visual systems cause difficulty with reading, learning, remaining on-task, or being productive; double vision, headaches, or eyestrain; poor coordination, depth perception, or sports performance; dizziness or light sensitivity; and poor balance or mobility.

Sunflower Vision Development Center is conveniently located on the northeast corner of Shawnee Mission Parkway and Goddard Street on the 2nd floor of First Interstate Bank, within 5 minutes of I-35 and I-435. Our location allows us to provide the help that is needed in the underserved areas closer to, and north of downtown Kansas City. Sunflower Vision Development Center is privileged to serve Shawnee and the surrounding communities such as Merriam, Mission, Fairway, Mission Hills, Overland Park, Lenexa, Roeland Park, Kansas City, KS, Kansas City, MO, and more.
