I had LASIK eye surgery with Dr. Whitten a couple of months ago and everything about the process massively exceeded my expectations. My eye glasses rx was -650 before the surgery, which is horrible vision. Like, can’t see several inches in front of my face bad vision. I haven’t been able to see clearly without contacts or glasses since I was a child and I’m now 37. It’s beyond incredible that I can now open my eyes in the morning and see everything clearly. At my most recent follow up exam with my optometrist I was told I have better than 20/20 vision now! Dr. Whitten’s experience, professionalism and the support of his team was a really great experience. I can’t imagine trusting anyone else with something as precious as my vision. Dr. Whitten’s calming demeanor set me at ease and everything went smoothly on surgery day. And his work truly is miraculous. I’m blown away every day by my perfect vision and so appreciative of being able to see clearly.
