MEET OUR OPTOMETRISTS

Austin Krohn, O.D.

Dr. Austin Krohn received his Doctorate of Optometry from Southern College of Optometry, Memphis, TN. He completed his undergraduate degree in biology from Truman State University in Kirksville, MO. Dr. Krohn is ACMO certified (advanced competency in medical optometry). “The reason I became an optometrist is because I had a higher prescription as a child. Getting glasses and contact lenses made a huge difference in my school and athletic careers. I like fixing problems. I enjoy determining the cause, finding the solutions, and figuring out which solution would work best for each individual. It’s rewarding knowing that when we do a good job, it impacts literally every day of that patient’s life whether they know it or not.

Jonathon Thoele, O.D.

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.
