Welcome to Sunflower Vision Development Center


Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Sunflower Vision Development Center has transitioned to providing Vision Therapy via tele-health. Current and prospective patients are being seen for exams and Vision Therapy progress evaluations Monday through Friday by appointment only. In-office doctor’s visit appointments will continue as long as our office is able to obtain adequate disinfection supplies and personal protective equipment. Current and prospective patients can contact our office by leaving a voice message or sending a HIPAA-secure email from this website. We are hopeful that everyone will continue to stay healthy and safe throughout this pandemic.


Welcome to 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 off of Shawnee Mission Parkway on Long Avenue in Shawnee, KS and is 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.  Until now, patients living near downtown Kansas City would have to travel to the far outskirts of the southern suburbs of Olathe, KS, Overland Park, KS or Kansas City, MO for further treatment.  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.  Call 913-631-0262 or send us a secure email to schedule an appointment.
