    Rude, cold and condescending. I did not like the trial pair of contacts I was given, and made an appointment to go back in to talk about it. He stated I have severe eye allergies when I do not, and that some people just should not wear contact, even though I have been wearing them for over 15 years and never had an issue. He refused to help me after that, told me I needed to get a second opinion and ushered me out of the exam room.

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

    Dr. Shepard's Care Philosophy

    We provide thorough, computerized eye exams and contact lens fittings at a value price. Our exams include retinal photos, and dilation AT NO ADDITIONAL charge. We offer same-day appointments, and accept walk-ins when possible. Most contact lens patients can leave the same day wearing lenses out. The optical lab in Eyemart offers 1-hour eyeglass service. You may find a lower price, but you won't find a better value!
