Dr. Whitten is proud to have a long history of working closely with other eye doctors to achieve successful surgical results for their patients. Whether for LASIK, Cataracts or Reading Vision, ongoing follow-up with your personal eye doctor is extremely important for the best visual outcomes.
At your appointment, you will be asked if you have an eye doctor. If you don’t currently have an eye doctor we will be glad to help you find one. There are many highly skilled eye doctors in Southern Maryland, Richmond, VA and the Washington, D.C. area, and one is sure to be located conveniently to you.

Periodic exams are required to monitor how well you are healing, protect against infection and measure your visual progress after your laser vision correction. Dr. Whitten recommends that everyone, regardless of eye surgery, have a routine eye exam performed by an eye doctor once a year.
“I have enjoyed co-managing patients with Dr. Whitten for many years. My patients have all benefited from working with the two of us together. When considering an eye surgeon for my patients, Dr. Whitten is always my first choice.”
