Meet Dr. John A. Stefano, MD, FACS

For more than two decades, Dr. John A. Stefano has been known by his patients and colleagues for offering quality eye care throughout Northern Shenandoah Valley.

Since 1979 he has established himself as a skilled eye surgeon, performing over 1200 major surgical cases each year. In 1986, Dr. Stefano was the first surgeon in his area to perform RK (radial keratotomy) to correct nearsightedness and astigmatism. Ten years later, in 1996, when the FDA first approved the use of the excimer laser to correct visual problems using the technique known as PRK, Dr. Stefano underwent training to learn the procedure. He soon became part of the first group of doctors in the country to receive certification to perform laser vision correction, and also became the first eye surgeon in the Winchester area to perform this surgery.

What Our patients Are Saying

I’m coming up on my 14 year LASIK anniversary –November 1998. It’s still amazes me. At my last eye exam, I was still 20/15! Just think of all of the money I’ve saved in glasses, contacts and solutions! Thanks Dr. Stefano for making this possible for me!

Lasik is amazing! I have been hesitant for years in regards to having the procedure. After seeing two other physicians, I just didn’t feel confident and my gut instinct was “this isn’t the right thing to do”. So, after seeing Dr. Stefano, my gut instinct was “this is the time… this is the physician”. So, yesterday I had iLasik. When the procedure was over I asked “is that it”? It was a breeze. No pain, irritation whatsoever and he walked me thru the entire procedure…

I had refractory surgery done on both eyes after wearing contacts and glasses for more than 30 years. The care was great, the procedure fantastic, and I am thrilled to have thrown away glasses and those contacts. Thank you to Dr. Stefano and his great staff for such wonderful care!

Why Comprehensive Eye Exams are Necessary

General eye exams are commonly maintained to help people know how well they see with or without prescription lenses. These exams are often limited to reading letters on a board located across the room. While it is necessary to have vision evaluated periodically, this is only the beginning of truly understanding how healthy the eyes …
