Dr. Nathaniel Jensen has worn glasses since elementary school, and he made the decision to become an optometrist because he knew that taking care of patients' eyes and vision would be making a significant difference in their lives. While preparing for optometry school he discovered vision therapy, and saw that through vision therapy he could make a difference beyond just glasses. He saw patients and parents who became emotional about how much vision therapy had changed their lives. He was especially impacted by the patients he saw who had previously struggled in school and later found that they could excel in school and enjoy reading after completing vision therapy. This impacted not only their grades but changed their entire outlook on life for the better, and Dr. Jensen was immediately hooked. He is eager to provide this life-changing service for patients and loves seeing these positive changes in their lives on a daily basis.
FamilyDr. Jensen has been married to his wife, Nellie, for almost ten years and they have three daughters. As a family they enjoy hiking, cheeseburgers, and pretty much any park with a playground. Dr. Jensen is a music enthusiast, enjoys playing the piano, and can often be found on the floor playing with his daughters. He and his wife are thrilled to be raising their family in Colorado where they are close to the mountains and so many outdoor activities.
SchoolDr. Jensen grew up in Orem, Utah, and attended Brigham Young University, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish with a minor in business management. He later received his Doctorate of Optometry from Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, Tennessee, where he also received awards celebrating his passion for developmental optometry and private practice optometry. After optometry school he completed a post-doctorate residency in vision therapy, vision rehabilitation and pediatric optometry in Austin, Texas. Dr. Jensen is excited to be a part of the Impact Vision Therapy team, and loves helping patients improve their vision and their lives.
