I came in blind on my left eye for over 55 years. I incurred dust in my left eye while walking to school. I had a corneal transplant in 2014 by Dr. Whitson. The procedure took only 15-20 minutes! I actually could see him doing the last stitching and talked to him at that time. The day after my surgery they removed my bandage and I had vision instantly. Surprise!
I want to thank everyone for their good wishes and kind thoughts concerning this morning’s cataract surgery. I was home at 12pm this afternoon. The surgery was absolutely flawless. The surgeon said he was very pleased with the result. I am pleased that the two cataract surgeries will work out extremely well together. I am certain that I will require additional LASIK surgery for astigmatism. Once those are completed, my eyesight should be 20/20 without correction at total distance down to 12”. Readers will be required under 12”.
For those in the Indiana area, I highly recommend DR. WHITSON. Extremely professional staff. Doctor Whitson’s “#1” is Joyce Dickerson. I don’t know what he pays her annually, but if it is anything short of 7 figures, she is underpaid. I would like to comment individually on everyone there, but that obviously is not possible. But two more are a must.
Dr. Grove in post-op examination and evaluation is the best I have ever encountered and I have professional experience to back it up. Finally, Missy at the front desk. There is no finer professional in her field. In my many years of professional customer service, I have never encountered the likes of MISSY. Amen, she’s beautiful as is Joyce and the others on staff. But they’re a big cut above all others in what really counts. With MISSY and JOYCE, you are not just a patient, but a PERSON and a friend.
I am so thankful Dr. Whitson and his staff told me exactly what was happening to me and what to expect to see after surgery. Other people I talked to from other Dr's had quite a different negative experience.
I had Salzmann's nodular disease on top of cataracts on both eyes. Dr. Whitson scraped the nodules off and when the eye was healed, he did the cataract surgery. Again, he told me exactly what to expect. The first nodular surgery was my worst. Very painful but was able to work 3 days after. The cataract surgery I was normal the day after.
Hi Dr. Whitson,
I want you to know how much it meant to me to be able to see clearly again. You are the best! I thank God for you and your kindness. I think you are a very smart man. God Bless you and yours. Take Care. I'm still amazed!
I had Lasik eye surgery 15 years ago at Whitson Vision and have been a patient since. Each year my eyes became drier due to normal aging. In late 2012 my eyes became unbearably uncomfortable. I began to have to administer eye drops hourly, use eye steroid drops, and use a humidifier nightly to get any relief. Dr. Whitson told me about a new procedure called Lipiflow which could offer some real and maybe lasting relief. He did one eye in January and the other in February. The difference is remarkable. I am only using Restasis and eye drops a couple of times during the day because I am at a computer all day. I would recommend Lipiflow to anyone who suffers from chronic dry eye as I did. It was quick, and painless.
Dear Dr. Whitson,
I just wanted to say thanks for making a special trip into the office to see my son. When the high school nurse called and said she was concerned and really couldn't sleep over the weekend if she didn't know he was being seen, we were a little panicked. To be able to call you up and get that kind of personal service really means a lot and it's a kind of service we don't soon forget. Unfortunately, it's a little bit rare these days that people go over and above the call of duty like you did that Friday afternoon.

My greatest joy this year is as it was last year. Thanks to Dr. Whitson my eyesight is my most precious blessing again this year. My second cataract surgery was perfect. Thanksgiving some of us spent a couple of days in Kansas City. I was able to read the lettering on the hotel from five miles away. I had never seen the city so beautiful-it brought tears to my eyes to realize the improvement is so dramatic.
I want to thank you for giving me back my sight. I will always be in debt to you.
Dear Dr. Whitson,
Thank you for your excellent care of my mother. The restoration of her sight has had a hugely positive impact on every aspect of her life. I very much enjoyed working with you and feel we were lucky to find you.
Dear Project Health,
I want to take this time to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude toward my eye surgery with Dr. Whitson. The professionalism of the staff from start to finish was beyond excellent. I was amazed at how well I had been treated being a “pro bono” patient. Dr. Whitson and his staff have allowed me to be able to improve my vision. I have not been able to see for the last four years. I had to try to work under conditions of not being able to see, which was a strain.
Thank you for helping me, my appreciation is endless to everyone.
My experience was wonderful! Great doctor, staff and overall pleased with my choice to use Whitson Vision.
I had the Bladess LASIK. My experience was great. All my questions were answered, and I had no complications. Quick recovery. After about 2-3 days my eyes were feeling much better. Would recommend.
