I had cataract surgery with Dr Whitson and my results were excellent. He makes sure that you understand every aspect of the procedure. My surgery was complex in that I was extremely nearsighted with a good amount of farsightedness. I also had a very high degree of astigmatism. I am able to drive, work on my computer and read with no visual correction whatsoever. OUTSTANDING! The staff is very warm and patient. Everyone in this practice treats you like you are the only patient and are no. 1.
