Dr. John Sheppard Jr, MD
I am a board-certified, fellowship-trained ophthalmologist and the Vice President of Virginia Eye Consultants. I place a particular emphasis on treating those looking to improve their vision by undergoing corneal transplantation, LASIK, refractive or cataract surgery. Our practice is committed to providing outstanding eye care while utilizing the best technology available. Our LASIK procedures have become incredibly advanced, resulting in shorter recovery times and improved reliability. All of the doctors at our practice are at the top of their field and have devoted themselves to serving patients with conditions such as dry eye, glaucoma, astigmatism and conjunctivitis. In addition to helping patients, I am passionate about contributing to the medical community. In fact, the doctors at VEC complete more clinical research in ophthalmology than any other practice in Virginia. I am committed to leading the Virginia Eye Consultant team and helping patients maintain excellent eye health.
