Dr. Jeffrey J. Lant, or “Dr. JJ” as many call him, lives in Lake St. Louis with his wife, Heather, and three children, Lucy, Garrett, and Nolan. He grew up in Wyoming and then attended Brigham Young University graduating in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management. After undergraduate school, Dr. Lant and his family moved to the Memphis, TN area where he attended Southern College of Optometry. After graduation in 2012, they moved to the St. Louis area to be closer to his family.
After practicing primary eye care for several years and seeing patients that needed to be referred for Vision Therapy, Dr. Lant felt a passion for and saw a need for this service in the greater St. Charles County area. He pursued more education and training through the Optometric Extension Program and completed all their Clinical Curriculum courses. With this and previous experience and training he founded Four Circles Vision Therapy.
