Our Eye Doctors

Your Trusted Optometrist in Wilmington, NC

The eye care professionals at Carolina Vision Associates, O.D., P.A. specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.

Drs. Jackson and Cooper take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

Meet Our Wilmington Eye Doctors:


Dr. Jonathan Jackson, O.D.

Dr. Jackson is from the small town of Saint Pauls, N.C. A lifelong Tar Heel, he attended Chapel Hill and received his undergrad degree in Business Administration. During his senior year, he decided to pursue optometry as a career. He enjoyed living in the Philadelphia area while earning his doctoral degree from Pennsylvania College of Optometry, but he was eager to return to southeastern N.C. where he belonged. He opened his independent practice adjacent to EyeMart Express in June 2012.

Dr. Jackson likes helping people with contact lenses, which he has worn for many years himself. He enjoys sports, boating, traveling, and spending time with his wife and dog. He also enjoys eating, so he convinces himself that he likes to exercise too.



Dr. Sheila Cooper, O.D.

Dr. Cooper graduated from the Pennsylvania State University with a bachelor of science degree in science. She received her doctor of Optometry degree from Pennsylvania College of Optometry.

She is an active member of the American optometric association and the North Carolina optometric society.

She enjoys traveling and boating with her husband and rowing with the cape fear river rowing club.
