For over 35 years, the Pernoud Eye Institute has been committed to providing cutting-edge and compassionate care to the St. Louis area. Originally founded in 1978 by Drs. Joan and Flavius Pernoud, the practice has been at its current location since 1990. In 2012, Dr. Jonathan Schell joined the practice and brought with him sub-specialized training in cornea and refractive surgery; thus allowing for newer treatments and techniques including serum tears, fast recovery corneal transplants, and customized wavefront guided laser vision correction. In 2014, upon the retirement of Dr. M Ishaq Chishti, the practice was pleased to partner with Retina Associates of St. Louis to provide in-office medical retina care and to expand our surgical retina services. In addition to treating diabetic eye disease and macular degeneration with the latest technology, our surgeons provide options to patients with structural diseases of the retina including retinal detachments.
Our onsite diagnostics center has the latest equipment which allows our specialists to make timely diagnoses and monitor therapeutic responses without the patient ever leaving clinic.
Our onsite surgical suite allows scheduling convenience and cost savings for our patients who will benefit from extraocular procedures such as eyelid lifts, Botox, fillers for wrinkles, lower eyelid tightening, removal of growths, and superficial corneal surgery among others.
While many things have changed during the last 35 years, our commitment to our patients has not. Our goal is to provide the best medical and surgical care to our patients utilizing the latest and most appropriate technology available to us. We treat our patients the way we would want our family and ourselves treated.
