Missouri Eye Consultants Welcomes Dr. Cole Vanderfeltz to Their Nifong Location

Columbia, Missouri -

Columbia, MO — Missouri Eye Consultants has added a new eye doctor to their office at Columbia on Nifong. Located at 900 W Nifong Blvd Suite 125
Columbia, MO 65203
, Cole Vanderfeltz, O.D., will bring his expertise to the Missouri Eye Consultants team. A knowledgeable optometrist, he takes pride in being able to provide full-scope eye care to patients of all ages. He has expertise in a wide range of services, including comprehensive eye exams, eye disease management, pediatric eye care, contact lenses, and specialty contact lens fittings for his patients.

“We’re thrilled to accept Dr. Vanderfeltz to join our team,” said Dr. Chris DeRose, “he’s an empathetic and knowledgeable eye doctor who listens closely, knows his stuff, and clearly went into eye care for all the right reasons. And number one among those reasons is his ability to prioritize the patient experience.”

Dr. Cole Vanderfeltz

A Jefferson City native, Dr. Vanderfeltz has a profound belief that proper eye care significantly enhances a patient’s quality of life. He completed his undergraduate degree in biochemistry and physics from Rockhurst University in Kansas City, MO, and earned his Doctor of Optometry from the University of Missouri – St. Louis. He has been recognized for his dedication and commitment to the field, holding memberships in both the American Optometric Association and the Missouri Optometric Association.

His extensive training and compassionate approach to patient care make him a valuable addition to the Missouri Eye Consultants team. However, his greatest strength may be his ability to form personal connections. For Dr. Vanderfeltz, patients who feel supported by their eye doctor are more likely to work with them and provide information that will help him better diagnose and treat their concerns.

When he is not actively serving patients, Dr. Vanderfeltz enjoys spending time with his wife hiking through Missouri’s sprawling national and state parks, or passionately cheering on the Cardinals, Blues, and Chiefs.

"I’m excited to bring my expertise and belief in a positive patient experience to the Missouri Eye Consultants team,” said Dr. Vanderfeltz. “Every patient deserves a tailored, holistic approach to eye care, and it’s clear from the time I’ve spent with my new coworkers that this is the kind of supporting environment where that positive mindset thrives. The excellent staff at Missouri Eye Consultants encourages us to go the extra mile; I’m eager to contribute to that mission by listening closely, asking the right questions, and finding effective solutions for each one of my patients."
