Tiger Woods' LASIK Experience
Tiger Woods’ LASIK Experience "I was apprehensive, just like anyone else would be when their vision is going to be altered. But I was prepared, because I researched everything, and I had a lot of faith in Dr. Whitten."Before LASIK in 1999, without contacts: "Tiger was severely nearsighted and could see no more than about one foot in front of his face," according to Dr. Mark Whitten. The eye of the Tiger went from 20-400 (legally blind) to 20-15. Tiger went on to win the first five tour events he played in after the surgery.

Our LASIK Experience
"We chose Dr. Whitten because of his experience and reputation. We trusted him. Right here in Southern Maryland, we have one of the country’s leaders in laser vision correction. After LASIK, our vision is better than ever!”
Robin's Cataract Surgery Experience
Robin’s Cataract Surgery Experience I knew my eyes were bad but I had no clue how much of the world I was missing until this [cataract] surgery was completed. I can honestly say it was the best experience from A to Z. Dr. Whitten’s office staff was professional, courteous and very efficient. St. Mary’s Hospital was amazing.
Rourke's PRK Experience
Rourke's PRK Experience I had a PRK procedure performed by Dr. Whitten. I've had severe astigmatism my whole life and couldn't see anything without corrective lenses. After the procedure, I can see perfectly without glasses or contacts. Dr. Whitten and his staff were extremely professional and friendly through every step of the process--from initial consultation through the procedure and follow up. Dr. Whitten took the time to speak with me and answer every question I had along the way. My only regret is that I didn't call Dr. Whitten sooner!
