Dr. Theresa Myers
Dr. Myers is the lead optometrist in the West Frankfort office where she sees patients of all ages. She also sees patients in Herrin and sometimes sees patients in Carbondale. Dr. Myers provides routine vision care (contacts, glasses, wellness exams) as well as ocular health exams (diabetes, glaucoma, macular degeneration, etc.). She also provides INFANTSEE exams and provides infants under 12 months of age a free wellness exam. Recently, she has become a provider for the new NEUROLENS technology to alleviate headaches, computer vision syndrome and small misalignments of the eyes. Dr. Myers is passionate about helping people see well.
Dr. Myers is also passionate about Southern Illinois. She was raised in Harrisburg, Il. It was there as a child, she received her first pair of glasses and was amazed at what she had been missing. That began her lifelong interest in vision care. She attended Harrisburg High School and was a member of the concert choir and was an active member of the theater club. After high school, she attended Southeastern Illinois College and then she transferred to Eastern Illinois University at Charleston, Il. where she received a B.S. degree with a major in Zoology and a minor in Chemistry. She then attended the Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago and graduated in 1994 with a Doctor of Optometry degree.
After graduating, Dr. Myers returned to Southern Illinois. She worked in the area, got married to her husband, Jeff, and helped to raise their daughter, Jayne. In the autumn of 2016, she joined the CFE staff and enjoys employing the latest technology to serve her patients.
She also enjoys bicycling and you may find her out on one of the local roads or bike trails or participating in a local charity ride. You may also find her with her nose in a book. She likes to read and would one day like to author a book. When you can’t find her, she’s hanging out at home with her husband and their 3 cats: Sherlock, Keye and Scoutt (all named for characters in books).
Dr. Myers would love to help you see your best. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Myers and see what you’ve been missing.
