Clarkson Eyecare is proud to be a medically based optometric group based in St. Louis,
Missouri. Our team of highly trained optometrists, opticians, and technicians focus on
maintaining the health and development of your eyes by providing the most
comprehensive eye exam on the market. The Clarkson Eyecare brand was founded in
1979 by Lawrence J. Jehling, O.D. and Lynette S. Lui, O.D. as the Jehling-Lui Eye
Associates on Clarkson Road in Ellisville, Missouri.
A few years later, Dr. Jehling opened a second office in Pacific, Missouri, called Pacific
Eyecare. A full-service lens-grinding laboratory was then added to the Pacific location.
In 1995, Dr. Jehling and Dr. James Wachter merged four St. Louis locations to take on
one brand: Clarkson Eyecare. The merger ignited the rapid growth of the company.
Clarkson Eyecare has recently expanded its services to serve not only Missouri and
Southern Illinois. With the acquisition of Sight & Sun Eyeworks in the Florida Panhandle
and the recent merging of Cincinnati based Thoma & Sutton Eye Care, more and more
patients are experiencing the Clarkson difference.
Clarkson Eyecare also has its own proprietary practice management software, Eyecare
360. Developed from the input of our own doctors, this software enables optometrists,
ophthalmologists and their staffs to create a better patient experience
through Electronic Medical Records (EMR). With this new technology, appointments,
insurance verification, billing, inventory and eye exams are all done electronically.
Clarkson looks forward to continued growth in the future, and to the opportunity to
serve more patients. We welcome you to visit your neighborhood office today.
