Peter Whitted, MD, JD, Michael Feilmeier, MD and Jesse Himebaugh, MD, perform refractive surgery at Midwest Eye Care. All three doctors have an extensive corneal subspecialty practice. Because they routinely treat patients with severe corneal disease, they understand the need to approach refractive surgery in a conservative manner.
Each year our surgeons advise approximately 40% of interested patients that they are not suitable candidates for LASIK or another type of refractive surgery. Unlike many refractive surgeons who see patients a few times and then discharge them, our practice often takes care of patients and their families for decades. Because we’d like to keep you as a patient, we provide recommendations that are in your best long-term interests.
Drs. Whitted, Feilmeier and Himebaugh are three excellent options when you’re researching refractive surgery. Dr. Whitted has been elected by his peers for inclusion on the Best Doctors in America list for 1996 – 2020, the only local LASIK surgeon to receive this honor. Dr. Feilmeier trained at two of the most prestigious ophthalmology programs in the United States, and has traveled internationally to teach eye surgical techniques to surgeons in developing nations. Dr. Himebaugh is our newest refractive surgeon and offers an excellent mix of up-to-date options and conservative treatment plans.
