Ashley M. Deese, OD joined SureVision Eye Centers in July 2017 where she is treating general eye care as well as offering dry eye specialty services at our Dry Eye Institute in Creve Coeur.
She graduated from the University of Missouri – Columbia with honors in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. She then went on to receive a degree as Doctor of Optometry from University of Missouri – St. Louis School of Optometry and was a member of the Beta Sigma Kappa honors society.
Dr. Deese furthered her studies in several specialized externships, including ocular disease, contact lenses, and primary care. She also completed research in the areas of glaucoma, dry eye management, and genetic disease.
During her time in optometry school, she was able to attend a medical mission trip to Saint Louis Du Nord, Haiti, where she had the privilege of providing eye care to an under-served population.
Her optometric interests include dry eye management, specialty contact lens fitting, ocular disease, and medical missions.
As a St. Louis native, she is excited to be able to provide eye care to patients in her home town.
“My family and I have been going to Surevision for at least 12 years. The Surevision team are always friendly, courteous, professional and conscious of my time. Specifically, Dr. Deese is extremely thorough and always takes the time to answer the questions that I have or discuss any issues. I highly recommend her and the Surevision team.”
“Dr. Ashley was so amazing. I unfortunately had very bad LASIK surgery in Los Angeles and was left hopeless with my poor vision. I went to Dr. Ashley in St. Louis and she checked my vision and recommended some vitamin supplements to help bring natural oils to my eyes for dry eye. She also showed me WHY my vision was blurry and helped me to understand scientifically, instead of just telling me in words I couldn’t understand. I can honestly say my life has changed since my visit to SureVision. I can see everyday and have less stress about my complications. Thank you so much. I’m so happy I found my forever eye doctor!”
“Dr. Gans, Dr. Deese and all the staff – I am beyond thrilled with the outcome of my surgery! Thank you so much for answering all my questions and addressing the concerns I had. My whole experience with the center was very positive. See you in six months!”
“Wow! I had cataract surgery a week ago and am stunned with the improvement of my vision. Previously, I’ve had Lasik surgery and that was great, but nothing like this. It’s extraordinary. The staff at SureVision Eye Centers and Woodcrest Surgery Center went out of their way to make sure my surgery went off without a hitch. They are courteous, professional and efficient. I can’t say enough good things about them. As far as my vision goes, perhaps the best way for me to put it into words, is to describe the difference between a 1980’s TV and today’s Hi-Def TV. Only better! The world is full of color like I’ve not seen for 20 or 30 years. It seems to improve every day, and it’s only been 7 days! I’m really looking forward to have cataract surgery on my other eye soon.”
