Jonathon Thoele, O.D.

Read Bio

Dr. Jonathon Thoele completed his undergraduate degree at Quincy University and received his Doctorate of Optometry from Illinois College of Optometry, Chicago, IL. He began practicing optometry at IEC in 2012.
Dr. Thoele finds optometry to be a “family friendly” career choice. One of his favorite parts of his profession is when a child gets excited to be seeing clearly with new glasses for the first time in his/her life.



Excellent vision, comfort, and fashionable frames for the whole family! Our doctors use the latest technology to assess your vision and determine the perfect prescription for you. Then we fit you with the best frames for your personal style and comfort. You can choose from hundreds of fashionable frames that fit any lifestyle or budget.

Contact Lenses

Today’s contact lenses provide excellent visual acuity and comfort all day long. They know how to fit patients with the most suitable lenses, regardless of whether you’re nearsighted, farsighted, need help reading small type, or have astigmatism. Plus, we provide low prices and convenient options for ordering.

Prevention & Treatment

Vision is easy to take for granted, until it becomes a problem. Many diseases and conditions can cause vision problems over time, and annual eye exams are critical to detecting degenerative issues such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts.


Want to shed your glasses for a new look? Tired of wearing contacts? LASIK, laser vision correction, may be for you. LASIK is the most common type of vision correction surgery to correct farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism.
