Patient Education

We take patient education very seriously at Wheaton Eye Clinic. Wellness is best achieved through the physician/patient partnership and the well informed patient is likely to experience the most favorable outcome. For this reason we share as much information as possible with each patient—in the exam room, in the reception area and on wheatoneye.com. We’re always working to ensure our educational resources are relevant, concise, accurate and up-to-the-minute.
