The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Department of Ophthalmology has American Board of Ophthalmology-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric ophthalmologists.

Dr. Kathy Whitfield devotes her practices to the comprehensive care of children’s eyes and to the alleviation of problems caused by adult strabismus.

Children’s eye problems range from routine examinations to the diagnosis and management of such problems as amblyopia (lazy eye), nasolacrimal duct obstruction (blocked tear ducts), cataracts, glaucoma, retinopathy of prematurity, and strabismus (eye misalignment).

Adult strabismus may take the form of a long-standing squint (crossing problem) of large angle with few or no symptoms, or a recently acquired misalignment of any amount but with disabling effects.

For children and adults, Dr. Whitfield subscribes to the philosophy that every patient deserves the best possible care, bringing to bear the most modern of treatment modalities and instrumentation.

Dr. Whitfield is ably assisted by a large group of well-trained and highly qualified ophthalmic technicians.

We are proud of the pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus team at UNC-Chapel Hill and look forward to the opportunity to be of help with your health care.
