Eyes On Sheppard makes it a policy to ensure that all staff members are up-to-date on the latest technology and techniques to make your visit as comfortable and efficient as possible. As optometric technology changes at a rapid pace, it is even more important to select an eye doctor who embraces the latest developments in eye care.

Utilizing cutting edge technology we can now diagnose and manage, with greater precision, diseases like Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration and Cataracts. Earlier and more precise diagnosis means earlier treatment and better outcomes.

  • Glaucoma is a condition that causes damage to your eye's optic nerve and slowly gets worse over time. Glaucoma results in loss of peripheral vision.
  • The macula is the portion of the retina which provides sharp, central vision, and is involved in processing the fine details of the image. The breakdown of the macula is a disease called macular degeneration.
  • Diabetes and vision go hand in hand. If you have diabetes, you need to know that having this systemic disease puts you at greater risk for developing vision problems.
