We started using Virginia Eye Consultants many years ago because their lead doctor, Dr Sheppard, is world renowned. Other senior doctors like Dr Jolie are also the best that Tidewater has to offer. When it comes to eyesight there is no such thing as trivial, however, if your situation is complex there is no better Clinic on the East Coast. As others have mentioned wait times can be very long, especially if your appointment is later in the day. That is why dad and I always schedule for the first appointment. No one likes to sit in a doctor's waiting room for hours and hours. My time is valuable also. That being said, if you have an emergency you will be seen next. Trust me I know. We went to see Dr Nordlund in Williamsburg because Dad's eye was bothering him. Come to find out he had an infection that needed to be addressed immediately. Dr nordlund called Dr Sheppard in Norfolk and explained the situation. We were told to get to Norfolk ASAP. On arrival they took Dad immediately and performed the necessary procedures. Dr Sheppard was with us for over an hour. Yes, that meant everybody in the waiting room was going to be there another hour however it likely saved my father's vision. As a patient knowing that that level of care is available from the best doctors on the East Coast makes sitting in the waiting room a no-brainer. When Dr Sheppard or his staff is running hours behind it's probably because they saved another patients eyesight earlier that day. Food for thought as you sit there fuming over the wait. If you have an emergency you will be next. And if that doesn't work for you go find another doctor. My two cents.


I love this place, exceptional costumer service and great professionals. Since the first time I got there they were very specific and straight forward with my wife and I. We both like the type of technology VEC use for they patients and how they take care of you.


Excellent care. I had lens and cornea replacement done with this company. Sometimes I have had long wait time but it's not often. What matters is the care and I have no complaints of that. Both of my surgeries were succesful.


For years, I've considered getting LASIK surgery but had reservations due to cost, concern that it wouldn't work as advertised, and that I would have complications due to my slight astigmatism. The thing is, the cost of new glasses, contacts, etc. piles up without really noticing. Plus, if you're a glasses-wearer as I have been for several months, and you need sun protection, well, you have to purchase a pair of prescription sunglasses. So I finally decided to take the plunge, and I could NOT be happier! Dr. Yeu was an absolute professional - incredibly kind, communicates through the entire procedure so that you are never left guessing, and takes the time to answer any and all concerns. Not only was Dr. Yeu a pleasure to work with, but the staff at the Norfolk location are TOP NOTCH. I worked with several people on my first appointment (to find out if I was a candidate) and everyone was so friendly and inviting. Going in, I had a good feeling that I was dealing with people that were attentive to detail and, more importantly, attentive to my concerns and questions. On the day of the surgery, I was expecting a long, drawn-out process, and I was prepared for that. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly the procedure was. Time went by so quickly during the procured - I felt as though it took mere minutes to complete (maybe 10 minutes total). After that, I could already see better, though a bit hazy at first since your eyes do have to heal post-op (which was expected). I went home and napped the rest of the day and woke up with what felt like brand new eyes! It takes a bit of time for the haziness to go away as your eyes heal, but it's not bothersome at all. I am so happy that I finally went through with it - and SO grateful for the exceptional staff at Virginia Eye Consultants. Thank you, Dr. Yeu and staff for a very happy patient that will surely recommend your services to others!


I was referred to Dr. Yeu for a growing scar in my left eye. She explained everything to me and put me at ease before, during, and after a procedure for my dry eye and surgery to remove the scar tissue. Everyone was so friendly and reassuring, making sure my questions were answered, and my girlfriend's too. They sent me home with everything I needed. I hope I never need eye surgery again, but if I do I'm calling Virginia Eye Consultants!
