Dr. Martin R. White was voted #1 Fort Wayne’s Best Eye Care Physician in the 2019 Fort Wayne’s Readers’ Choice Awards.
I had the pleasure of meeting the St. Joe Vision staff on Wednesday, December 13th. All of the staff were friendly, helpful, and willing to give each patient the best service. The optometrist, Dr. White, was informative, and extremely helpful.

Unlike a vision screening or other general eye test, comprehensive eye exams evaluate the entire health of the eye. They also help the optometrist or ophthalmologist determine your unique prescription. Comprehensive eye exams should begin as an infant to ensure proper eye and vision development. Ongoing eye health examinations at regular intervals are also important as many eye diseases and vision changes can occur without warning signs.
The Right Age for Contacts
Parents spend many years looking forward to a time when their children will be more independent. It’s difficult to care for one or more little people and still care for yourself! When children start growing into teenagers and young adults, parents often agonize over when their children are ready for these newer and greater responsibilities. One question we are often asked is, “What is the right age for contacts?”
Types of Contact Lenses
Millions of people wear contact lenses to help them see clearly. We’ve seen many advancements in lens materials and designs over the years. If you have tried contacts in the past, but stopped due to discomfort or poor quality, it may be time to try again. Dr. White & Dr. Minix will help select the best option for your eyes! We have a variety of options for your specific type of prescription correction, tear production, lifestyle, and more.
A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside the eye that leads to a decrease in vision. Left untreated, it is the most common cause of blindness and is conventionally treated with surgery. Vision loss occurs because opacification of the lens obstructs light from passing through and being focused on to the retina at the back of the eye.
