The Center for Vision & Learning opened its doors on August 1st, 2005. Drs. Cheryl Davidson and Gail Doell founded the practice with the intent to provide pediatric optometric services for the St. Louis and surrounding areas. Drs. Lisa Schembri and Kelsey Manescalco joined in 2006 and 2018 respectively to offer expanded office hours and continue our mission to help children and adults improve their vision.  

We evaluate and treat children and adults for functional visual conditions such as tracking difficulties, autism, binocular vision problems, vision-related learning difficulties, and visual rehabilitation. 

We offer in-office vision therapy to remediate, rehabilitate and enhance visual skills. Our practice employs seven vision therapists to provide one-on-one treatment to patients of all ages. Each patient's plan of care is designed individually for their goals and needs. 

We have a full-service pediatric optical dispensary including a full line of sports frames for children and teens. We also fit and dispense contact lenses. Our doctors perform prism and lens tint testing for functional and rehabilitative purposes.   

The doctors and staff at the Center for Vision & Learning invite you to visit our office to learn more about our services and how they might help you perform at your optimum level!
