Dr. Nicole Sheffer is one of Northwest Eye’s premier optometrists. With a passion for working with young adults, teens, children, and special needs patients, Dr. Sheffer makes taking care of your family’s eye care needs easier than ever!

In addition to general eye care, Dr. Sheffer has a special interest in computer-related eye strain, contact lenses, and myopia control.

She earned her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Minnesota, majoring in ecology, evolution, and behavior and minoring in neuroscience. She then received her Doctor of Optometry degree from Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago, IL.

Dr. Sheffer completed externships at Eye Care Associates in CT, Illinois Eye Institute in Chicago, IL, Pine Cone Vision Center in Sartell, MN and Providence VA Medical Center in Providence, RI.
