Dr. John Drenon is a 1987 graduate of University of Missouri-St. Louis School of Optometry. Upon graduation he returned to his home town of Sedalia to join his father, Dr. Russell Drenon in his practice. The two worked together until his father’s retirement in 1998. During that time he learned much about the practical aspects of the profession of Optometry from his father’s many years of experience, which included the early days of fitting contact lenses. Dr. Drenon continues to fit contact lenses as well as practicing primary care Optometry. During his leisure time he enjoyed spending time outdoors with his parents, especially in a boat or canoe. Today he continues to spend as much time outdoors as possible, and enjoys time with his wife, son, and daughter and son-in-law.
