Barry Wepman, M.D.

Ophthalmologist at Claris Vision, formerly Seacoast Eye Associates.

Dr. Wepman received his BA in Psychology from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor in 1968. His MD was from Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit in 1972. In his junior year of medical school, Dr. Wepman was awarded membership into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society, graduating with distinction.

Dr. Wepman served as a rotating intern at the Sinai Hospital of Detroit 1972-73. He completed his four-year residency in Ophthalmology at the Tufts-New England Medical Center in Boston, finishing in 1977. During this time he was involved in the early research into panretinal photocoagulation for the treatment of proliferative diabetic retinopathy and the effects of VII Nerve palsy on intraocular pressure, publishing and presenting the following:

“The Electroretinogram and Dark Adaptation During the Course of Photocoagulation: Changes in Retinal Function in Diabetic Retinopathy”. Presented at the Atlantic Section Meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, Bethesda, MD, November 1974

“The Effect of Photocoagulation on Dark Adaptation and the Electroretinogram in Diabetic Retinopathy”. Presented at the 14th ISCERG Symposium, Louisville, KY, May 1976

“Ocular Findings in Bell’s Palsy”. Presented at the American Academy of Ophthalmology, Kansas City, MO, October 1978

Following his residency, Dr. Wepman served in the United States Navy as Lt. Commander, Chief of the Ophthalmology Service at the US Naval Regional Medical Center in Newport, RI from 1977-79. Since that time he has been in the private practice of Ophthalmology, ultimately teaming up with Mark Deresienski, OD, founding Seacoast Eye Associates in 2000. Dr. Wepman’s primary professional interest is in the refractive aspects of anterior segment surgery, especially cataract surgery.

Dr. Wepman lives with his wife in Wakefield, RI. They have four grown children and two young grandchildren. When not working, he can be found restoring his 1864 home or tinkering with any number of his eclectic interests: antique motorcycles, cars, cameras or computers, and remote control helicopters.

The Greater New Bedford Surgical and Laser Center

The Greater New Bedford Surgical and Laser Center was opened in 1986 with the express purpose of rendering high quality, state of the art eye surgery to patients of all ages, especially those with cataracts, glaucoma, or cornea disease. The Center is designed specifically with the needs of the patient in mind. The entire process from initial examination to final outcome is conducted in a pleasant comfortable environment.

After a patient decides to have surgery, he or she is assigned his or her own Surgical Counselor who is available to answer questions and provide assistance. These individuals are specially trained to assist the patient throughout the entire surgical experience, including follow up care for as long as necessary. Patients are encouraged to contact their counselor for any questions, no matter how simple or complex.
