Wesley Dunnam, O.D. M.B.A

Wesley Dunnam, O.D., M.B.A., a native of Jonesboro, Arkansas, started his career in optometry at Arkansas State University, where he earned a B.S. in biology in 2012. He proceeded to graduate from Memphis’ Southern College of Optometry in 2016. There, Dr. Dunnam was actively involved with several organizations, including the Fellowship of Christian Optometrists, which gave him the opportunity to serve on different mission trips to provide eye care to underserved areas. In 2017, Dr. Dunnam expanded his education by earning an MBA at Christian Brothers University with a focus on healthcare administration.

Since 2018, Dr. Dunnam has been a practicing optometrist in Paragould. He first joined the Progressive Eye Center team when it was purchased from Dr. Jami Veal’s practice. In a significant development in June 2023, he purchased the practice from Dr. Jerry Ellis, the owner of Progressive Eye Center. The Progressive Eye Center clinic underwent a rebranding as a result of this evolution, becoming what is now Paragould Family Vision.

Dr. Dunnam is not only an optometrist, but he is also a proud member of the Paragould community. With family from both sides who are deeply rooted in Paragould’s history, it was clear that he wanted a name to reflect the commitment that they have as a clinic to provide excellent vision care for all ages in a family-friendly environment.

Outside of the clinic, Dr. Dunnam and his wife are actively involved with the music ministry at church. They enjoy outdoor activities as a family, and it wouldn’t be unusual to see the Dunnam’s at a local bluegrass festival, playing with their kids at the park, or at an Arkansas State ball game cheering for the Red Wolves. Dr. Dunnam is thankful for the opportunity to serve the vision needs of his community at Paragould Family Vision.

Dr Dunnum is so kind and patient. My exam requires so extra paperwork for my flight physical, he is always accommodating and has it ready for me. The staff is there to help, they have a large selection of glasses. I always enjoy this visit.

The front office staff was very helpful, I walked in expecting to have to wait for an appointment but they got me in that day, and I walked out with new glasses ordered. Dr. Dunham was very thorough with my exam and showed concern for me for some issues I’m experiencing. My husband and I both see Dr.Dunham and have always been treated right by his office. Highly recommend!
