In 1968, Shepherd Eye Center opened in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dr. John R. Shepherd pioneered new techniques and instrumentation that improved the way cataract surgery was performed around the world.

Today, Shepherd Eye Center has four office locations and is nationally-recognized for excellence and advancement in eye care and eye surgery. Shepherd Eye Center performs more cataract surgeries at its on-site surgery center than any other eye practice in the state of Nevada. Our team of trusted ophthalmologists and optometrists provides unparalleled vision care using the latest medical techniques, surgeries and the most sophisticated technology.
