Doctors & Staff
Meet the experienced and friendly doctors and staff who make Optimized Eyecare the leading provider of vision care products and services in Chesterfield.
Dr. Stephen Cusumano
Dr. Cusumano is a 1986 graduate of the University of Missouri-St.Louis College of Optometry. He practiced optometry in Columbia, Missouri for four years before moving to St. Louis in 1990. Optimized Eyecare was formed in 1998 as a result of Dr. Cusumano’s desire to better serve his patients, offering optimal care along with a warm, friendly environment.
Dr. Cusumano participates in the community by periodically holding speaking engagements at area schools, and he offers a Vision Savings Program to area First Responders. He currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Lighthouse for the Blind.
Dr. Kelly is a comprehensive optometrist who specializes in primary vision care, contact lens fittings, keratoconus comprehensive exam, problem-focused eye examinations, diabetic eye care, urgent eye care, and pre- and post-operative care.
He received his bachelor’s degree in biology from Lyon College in Arkansas and his medical degree from the University of Incarnate-Word Rosenberg School of Optometry in San Antonio, Texas. He received the prestige honor of Pre-Clinical Excellence. Dr. Kelly completed his externships in Chicago, as well as Peoria, IL where he provided eyecare to United States Veterans at the local VA hospital.
Upon returning to his hometown Dr. Kelly knew he never wanted to work for a corporate conglomerate, so when his family’s longtime eyecare Doctor was looking to sell his practice, it felt like a ‘meant-to-be’ moment. He takes pride in providing care to the same community in which he grew up and currently resides in.
In his free time Doctor Kelly loves attending Blues games with his family and spending time with his two fur-babies, Baloo and Mowgli.
