Dr. Whitney has tools to monitor your eyes and to make sure that you are on the right track to healthy vision.

Do your contacts get dry and irritating midday? The problem may not be your contacts but the contact solution you are using. We love Biotrue contact solution at our office. Biotrue is formulated to work like your eyes. It provides up to 20 hours of moisture, disinfects, and helps maintain healthy proteins in your eye. We have travel size boxes in our office if you are looking to try it out and see if it makes a difference with your contact lenses.
You never realize how important your vision is until you lose it. That is why we recommend having annual eye examinations. There are so many eye diseases that can be prevented or slowed down if detected early enough. Don't wait and risk sacrificing your vision. If you ever have partial vision loss seek eye care immediately. Some problems like a retinal detachment must be treated as soon as possible to prevent permanent blindness.
