Dr. Jennifer Gibson, Optometrist
Dr. Gibson is unlike any eye doctor most patients have ever encountered. She schedules ample time with each of her patients to go over any questions and concerns they may have about their vision. Perhaps what makes her so diligent about making sure that her patients are educated about their vision is the fact that her own father was diagnosed with a hereditary eye disease that slowly took his vision. That experience was life changing to Dr. Gibson.
She was inspired by the eye doctors who worked with her father and recalls thinking that if she could make one person see better, then her life would be fulfilled. Those thoughts became a reality as she graduated with honors from the University of Indiana School of Optometry and moved back to Western Kentucky to begin serving patients in this area.
The idea of opening a private eye care practice had crossed her mind more than a few times since moving back home, but it wasn’t until Dr. Gibson discovered a building for sale on Lone Oak Road that she decided that the time had arrived for her to build her practice. And built it she did! The Eye Center has grown significantly since opening its doors in 2012.
Today, Jennifer takes care of patients’ vision, while her husband, Jared Gibson, manages business operations. Together, they have established a doctor’s office in which patients’ expectations continue to be exceeded and their satisfaction is always guaranteed.
Jared Gibson, Office Manager
Dr. Gibson is the first to say that Jared’s work at The Eye Center of Paducah is what makes her job as an optometrist easier. Jared manages the daily business affairs and makes sure that everything in the office runs smoothly. Because this business is a family business for both him and Dr. Gibson, it’s important to them that customers leave the office feeling positive about their experience. If a patient has a concern, Jared works with the staff to ensure that the patient’s needs are met. He is a graduate of Murray State University where he completed his Master of Business Administration in 2005. He and Dr. Gibson opened The Eye Center of Paducah in 2012 and have been working together ever since.
Amanda Pittman, Certified Paraoptometric
Amanda is the smiling face who greets patients as they enter our exam rooms. She is a certified technician, skilled in providing the highest level of vision care to our patients.
A big part of her job is checking patients’ vision and getting their medical records updated. It’s her goal to ensure that everyone who receives an eye exam at The Eye Center of Paducah leaves our office feeling satisfied with their eye care and happy with the glasses they purchase.
Getting to know her patients well has been one of the perks of her job. Several of the people she has seen over the years now feel like family members and that makes The Eye Center of Paducah feel a lot like home. That’s a feeling that Amanda wants to share with her patients, as well.
Bethany Collins, Insurance Coordinator
Bethany is one busy lady these days, but never too busy to provide outstanding care to her patients. Bethany is a pro when it comes to helping coordinate insurance claims for patients at the Eye Center of Paducah. As our insurance coordinator, she is responsible for verifying coverage and getting their claims filed in a timely manner.
“The cost of vision is priceless,” Bethany says. “Dr. Gibson reminds us daily that every part of our process here at the Eye Center of Paducah makes a big difference in the lives of our patients. Whether we perform the smallest adjustment to their eyeglasses or take time answer complex insurance questions, our staff is here to help.”
While Bethany stays busy at our office, it’s not the only thing she finds time to do these days. She is married with three children and loves to play games and enjoy the great outdoors with them. The skills that she has refined in working with her own children, has played a vital role in our office, as well. With loads of kids getting back to school eye exams each fall, Bethany’s expertise as a mom helps our staff to provide excellent eye care service to the families who visit our office.
