    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Brilliant. Dr. Sheppard conveys confidence in himself and engenders the patient's confidence. I have learned that he performs very delicate procedures with little pain or drama. He listened to me and then ordered labs to confirm the anticipated diagnosis.

I have been seeing Dr. SHEPPARD since the late 80' s when he first arrived in this area. He is a caring, compassionate , top notch MD who provides the most comprehensive eye care in the area. He listens and has always answered questions willingly and without rushing through an explanation. The office environment offers the most current technology, is easily accessible and has plenty of parking. The cookies and assorted teas and coffees are a nice touch. It is true that on occasion i may need to wait a bit but emergencies happen with patients. I have been that emergency patient more than once and have been seen immediately. Many patients seen by Dr. S and other associates at VEC are complicated cases with sight threatening conditions. I trust Dr. Sheppard and the VEC staff with my vision. Thanks to his expertise and concern I have maintained my sight. My husband now sees Dr. Sheppard as well.
