Dr. Jessica Crooker
Optometrist and Owner of Scituate Harbor Vision Source
When Jessica Crooker put on her first pair of prescription eyeglasses in the third grade, her life changed forever. Now, as a TPA-certified optometrist and owner of Scituate Harbor Vision Source, her mission is, “to give my patients that same feeling of finally being able to see and experience the world they were missing,” says Crooker.
A native of Duxbury, Dr. Crooker earned a bachelor of science degree in human physiology from Boston University, a master of science degree in clinical exercise physiology from Northeastern University, and a doctorate of optometry from the New England College of Optometry. She is also a member of the Massachusetts Society of Optometrists and the American Optometric Association. Five years after joining the optometry team at Scituate Harbor Vision Source, Dr. Crooker purchased the practice and has continued to foster a comfortable environment for patients of all ages.
“It always surprises me how many people are afraid to come to the eye doctor,” she says. “All of our doctors really take the time to get to know our patients, to make them feel comfortable and well cared for, and not afraid or nervous to have an eye exam or come in for a medical issue.” Scituate Harbor Vision Source utilizes the most advanced optometry technology to assist patients who are struggling with their vision or ocular discomfort symptoms. “I’ve had many patients say they look forward to having their annual exam and actually think it’s fun!”
Scituate Harbor Vision Source has continued to grow, expanded office hours and added a new doctor to its esteemed staff. Crooker also enjoys mentoring students who aspire to become optometrists. “One of the greatest compliments I can receive is having students ask to spend time with me in the office and learn more about my profession,” says Crooker, who is happy to be inspiring the next generation.
