Dr. Grimes (or Dr. Jessica)
Dr. Jessica is a Central Virginia native, growing up in Chester and residing there still. After graduating from Thomas Dale High School, she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences from James Madison University in 2007. Dr. Jessica then moved to Memphis, TN to attend Southern College of Optometry, and graduated in 2012 with her Doctor of Optometry degree. Before taking ownership of Family Vision Care at the end of 2015, she practiced in Midlothian for three years.
Dr. Jessica enjoys seeing pediatric patients of all ages (as an InfantSEE provider, she examines babies under one year of age at no charge) and doing specialty contact lens evaluations for patients who have complicated prescriptions, dry eye, or have had eye surgery. If you’ve been told you can’t wear contact lenses, come see us – we’ll tell you what your options are!
At the end of 2022, Dr. Jessica got married to her amazing husband Derric, who is kind of a big deal as he is a 2007 graduate of West Point. Currently, he works as a construction manager for VDOT (please direct all roadwork complaints to him!). Together they have four crazy children who range in age from four to ten, four cats, a silly pit bull named Spot, and three fish. They enjoy travelling, library dates, jigsaw puzzles, and playing Mario Kart or Super Smash Bros (bonus if the kids are playing too!)!
Dr. Jessica is a member of the American Optometric Association, the Virginia Optometric Association, and the Richmond Optometric Society.
