What are eyeglasses?
Eyeglasses are a common and effective treatment option for refractive errors like myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (abnormally shaped cornea), and presbyopia (age-related vision loss). West County Ophthalmology offers evaluations and fittings for eyeglasses to correct these common refractive errors. We have an optical shop on-site so that you can choose the frames and lenses that will suit your personal lifestyle and needs. Our vision professionals proudly serve the Chesterfield and O'Fallon communities with eyeglasses that help patients navigate life with better vision. Contact our practice today to book your appointment.
What should I expect when getting eyeglasses?
During your comprehensive eye exam, we will test your visual acuity, check your eye health, and evaluate your refractive error to understand your prescription lens needs. There are two primary types of eyeglass lenses: single-vision lenses (which help you see up close or at a distance) and multifocal lenses (which combine lenses to correct multiple vision needs).
Once your ideal prescription is identified, our team will assist you in finding the best eyewear options to match your lifestyle needs, desires, and budget. Our on-site optical shop includes a variety of different designer frames and lens options so that you can select eyeglasses in person. While our team will identify your prescription, you will have the freedom to choose the color, look, and shape of your frames.

"I go to the office at St Luke's hospital to see my Dr. I go to winghaven to get my glasses adjusted for fit. They're always very helpful getting me and my wheelchair situated. The only reason for the four star is they take a marathon lunch like 11:30 to 1:00"- J.K. / Google / Dec 10, 2021

"My night vision was failing & fonts seemed to be shrinking by the minute.A friend recommended Dr. Raja for Ophthalmology care & I am so glad she did! I have poor vision & have worn glasses or multi-focal contacts since third grade.It could be overwhelming when considering the number of choices one has with corrective surgery. Dr. Raja listened with compassion & understanding to my lifestyle needs while considering the health & medical aspect of my individual case. Her "sound recommendation" was to begin by removing the cataracts in my dominant eye & replace it with a lense for distance & wear cheaters for reading. Her recommendation was SPOT ON. The surgery was easy, & the follow-up care has been wonderful! I can see better now than I ever have, & can't wait for the second eye to be treated! Dr. Raja could have recommended a more expensive treatment, but instead she recommended what was best for me!"- A.F. / Healthgrades / Jan 12, 2023

"Took my daughter in for issues she was having. I was so grateful she was able to be seen by an ophthalmologist. They were also able to update her contacts and glasses during the same visit. Best of all, they were able to put new lenses in her old, favorite frames. Everyone was very helpful and professional. Thank you for great healthcare!!"- K.L. / Google / Jun 27, 2023
