Learn about Dr. Shepard

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!

Patient Comments (1)
in Springfield, OR |
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.
