Dr. Michelle (Van Vark) Jones

Dr. Michelle is a licensed optometrist specializing in the detection and treatment of Vision-Related Learning Disorders, Refractive Disorders, and Ocular Disease such as glaucoma. Early detection and proper management of eye conditions help ensure that Dr. Michelle’s patients see well today and in the future.

Dr. Michelle grew up in Pella, IA. She graduated from Pella High School and Central College. Dr. Michelle then attended and graduated with honors from the Illinois College of Optometry in 2008.  She also performed externships through both primary care and specialty-referral clinics. This provided her with a wealth of knowledge and experience in patient care, diagnosing and treating ocular disease, and co-managing cataract, retinal, and refractive surgeries. Her passion for quality eye care lead her to open Family EyeCare Center, P.C. in 2010.

Dr. Michelle attends Liberty Evengelical Free Church with her husband (Dr. Kevin) and their three young boys.

Dr. Kevin Jones

Dr. Kevin grew up just north of Michigan in Northern Ontario, Canada.  Dr. Kevin's passion for optometry began at an early age (3rd grade) and continued to grow.  With that goal in mind, he attended The University Of Waterloo, where he graduated with a degree in Pre-Optometry.  Dr. Kevin then attended the Illinois College of Optometry where he graduated with honors in 2008.

Dr. Kevin gained invaluable experience while training at Southern Vitreotretinal Associates in Tallahassee, FL and has continued to excel in treatment of ocular pathology.  Dr. Kevin specializes in the detection and management of both refractive and non-refractive eye conditions with an emphasis on early ocular disease detection and treatment. Dr. Kevin’s practice is open to patients of all ages.

While attending the Illinois College of Optometry, Dr. Kevin met his wife, Dr. Michelle. During their first few years together, they decided that Pella would be their home.  In the winter of 2009 they moved back to Pella and began the process of opening Family EyeCare Center.  In the summer of 2010 they opened the doors to their state of the art optometry clinic.
