Shippee Family Eye Care

Eye care is an essential part of your healthcare program. Routine optometry care will ensure your vision and eye health are at their best from childhood through your senior years. If you live in the Lancaster, St. Johnsbury, Montpelier or Littleton area, come to Shippee Family Eye Care for the optometry services you need. We proudly cater to the vision care needs of our local community.

Who We Are

Shippee Family Eye Care is a full-service optical clinic operating out of four different locations: Lancaster, St. Johnsbury, Montpelier, and Littleton. Each of our locations has a board-certified optometrist capable of meeting all your eye care needs. You’ll find our staff friendly and knowledgeable about our field, ready to ensure you receive prompt, quality services during every visit.

What We Do

At Shippee Family Eye Care, we provide comprehensive eye exams, eye health checkups, and diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases like dry eye and other conditions. 

During a comprehensive eye exam, we’ll test your eyes for visual clarity to ensure you’re seeing as well as you should be. If we uncover refractive vision errors in your sight, like nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, we’ll prescribe corrective lenses to improve your sight.

We’ll also inspect your eyes for signs of eye conditions or diseases that can impair your vision. Some diseases don’t have symptoms in their early stages, making it difficult for you to know that something is wrong with your eyes. Our eye doctor can detect these subtle signs of disease during an eye exam. The sooner we diagnose eye conditions like dry eye and macular degeneration, the sooner you can get treatment to manage symptoms and prevent permanent vision loss.

In addition to eye exams and treatment of eye diseases, we provide many eye care services, including co-management of LASIK and cataract surgery, diabetic evaluation, optical lab services, vision therapy, pediatric and emergency eye care, and contact lens exams and fittings. We carry an extensive inventory of quality eyewear to include the latest in designer frames and lens technology. We also offer a variety of contact lenses to suit your lifestyle and prescription.

Our team stays current on the latest eye care technology and research to ensure you receive the best optometry services our staff can provide.
