Dr. Whipple is a board certified ophthalmologist and member of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (ASOPRS). This group of surgeons are a small and highly specialized society, graduating only approximately 15 physicians each year nationwide.

Dr. Whipple was born and raised in Webster, NY, where her family still resides. She attended the State University of New York at Geneseo, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry at the top of her class. Dr. Whipple went on to earn her medical degree from New York Medical College in Valhalla, NY. After completing her internship year at Aultman Hospital in Canton, OH, she headed west to explore and complete her residency in ophthalmology at University of California San Diego. Here she earned several research and academic honors, culminating in her being named Chief Resident in 2010.

After completing her residency, she spent an additional two years at the University of California San Diego to complete a prestigious and highly sought after fellowship in Orbital and Oculofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Acceptance into this society requires completion of an additional 2 years of training, completion of a thesis, and passing an oral and written exam. Dr. Whipple’s thesis was deemed the top 3 in the country and she was asked to present her research findings at the ASOPRS national meeting.

Her fellowship exposed her in depth to every part of orbital, lacrimal, and eyelid surgery, including learning the very latest techniques. This included advanced training in aesthetic techniques and rejuvenation treatments. During her fellowship, she completed thousands of reconstructive and aesthetic surgeries. She has authored numerous peer-reviewed articles, published numerous chapters, presented internationally at scientific meetings, and even developed a novel technique to rejuvenate the aging eyebrows. She is well respected by her colleagues and looked up to by the residents she trained, even receiving the Teacher of the Year Award during her fellowship.

With exciting opportunities to practice all over the country at the conclusion of her fellowship, Dr. Whipple decided to do what she has dreamed of doing since she was child. She chose to return to her hometown and treat the community she grew up loving. After 15 months in a group private practice, Dr. Whipple set out to accomplish another dream, running her own medical practice. This is how Envision Eye & Aesthetics was born. Dr. Whipple operates on quality, efficiency, and honesty. She looks forward to working with you.
