Erker’s Fine Eyewear opened its doors in downtown St. Louis in 1879. Since then, our optical retail store and eye care practice have been family-owned and operated for five generations, making us the oldest optical company in the United States still run by its founding family.
Just as the Erker’s name has been passed through the generations, so has our passion for vision. From day one, our mission has been to ensure that our patrons have exceptionally healthy eyes and access to a truly unique selection of glasses – and this still holds true today.
