About Arkansas Vision Development Center

As an experienced optometric physician, Dr. Wanda Vaughn provides area residents with comprehensive eye care and vision therapy solutions for both adults and children. Dr. Vaughn is specially trained to treat a variety of vision related conditions using complete vision therapy services designed to restore and improve visual function.

Dr. Vaughn is a Board Certified Fellow in Vision Development (F.C.O.V.D).  She is a member of the American Optometric Association and Arkansas Optometric Association.  Dr. Vaughn is currently Chair of the Arkansas Optometric Intra-Professional Committee and Chair of the Arkansas Optometric Infant See Committee.  She also serves as a committee member on many other boards within the state of Arkansas.

Dr. Vaughn is experienced in the most advanced vision therapy techniques available, and regularly attends continuing education courses and seminars in order to offer patients the highest quality vision services possible. Whether you are experiencing double vision or other vision related conditions, Dr. Vaughn will use her knowledge and experience to design a treatment plan designed just for you.

When you call to make an appointment with Dr. Vaughn, you will first receive a comprehensive eye health and vision evaluation to determine if vision therapy would be of benefit to you. You may be recommended for further in depth testing and evaluation to determine the extent of your visual problems.   Once your testing has been completed and Dr. Vaughn has evaluated your results, a treatment plan with be developed and a team of therapist will work one on one with you to discuss vision therapy exercises that can be completed both in-office and at home. These exercises are designed to help develop the visual skills necessary for proper visual function and to assist the visual system to process visual information more effectively. With regular vision therapy, many patients have noticed a dramatic or significant increase in visual efficiency.   

Vision is one of the most precious senses we have, and living life with impaired vision is difficult and often frustrating.  Eighty percent of how we learn is through the visual system.  If you have been diagnosed with a vision limiting condition, or are experiencing blurred or double vision, contact Dr. Vaughn for an appointment to have a complete vision and eye health evaluation. Even if you've been told in the past that there's nothing you can do about your vision problems, or that you will have to "live with" your impaired vision, Dr. Vaughn may be able to help using the most advanced and up-to-date vision therapy techniques and vision services available.
