Familiar Faces Sharing Years of Experience

Shannon C. Schaffer, O.D.

Dr. Shannon Schaffer grew up in Liberal, a small town Southwestern Kansas, playing every sport available and enjoying friends. The son of a small town barber, and watching small business at work, would greatly influence the desire to one day create a business of his own.

After a year of community college, and a short time at Kansas University, Dr. Schaffer graduated in 1991 with honors from Northeastern State Oklahoma University in Tahlequah, with a bachelor degree in Vision Science and a Doctorate in Optometry.

A few months after graduation, he made his home in West Omaha and began working for Malbar Vision Corporation. November 1998, he created his private practice of OmegaVision PC Eye Clinic, located at the corner of 168th and West Center Road. In 2006, the practice was renamed Family Eye Care and moved across the street into the current location in The Shoppes of Legacy.

On the home front, Dr Schaffer has 3 boys, Matt, Mike, and Jack. They are frequently found playing basketball in the cul-de-sac, camping, boating, fishing, kayaking, and playing music. In November 2016, Dr Schaffer married his grade-school friend and St Stephens kindergarten teacher, Lisa Winkler.
