The VEC Story

Veterinary Eye Center is a standalone ophthalmology-only practice focused on providing exceptional care to our patients and clients. Dr. Alex LoPinto launched the first VEC location in New York City in 2021. Our Medical Director, Dr. Ashley Zibura, is excited to be returning to her New England roots to open VEC here in Massachusetts and join the Greater Boston veterinary community.

VEC was designed to be ophthalmology-first. From the equipment we use, the layout of our centers, to our day-to-day workflows, we are exclusively focused on animal eye care. We take pride in our commitment to providing the best care not only to our patients, but to our clients and team members as well. We are excited to bring our high standard of eye care to the Greater Boston Region.
