Comprehensive Eye Exams

During a comprehensive eye exam, your eyes will be screened for any potential signs or risk factors of eye diseases to ensure your ongoing eye health. You’ll also receive an updated vision prescription.


Kids count on their vision whenever they learn, socialize, and grow. The eye doctors at Whelpley & Paul can diagnose age-specific eye diseases and help children pick out glasses they’ll truly want to wear.

Dry Eye

Dry eye is a common and uncomfortable condition, but it’s also quite treatable. You can count on your eye doctors to find the underlying causes of your case and address them to provide relief.

Eye Care in Webster

Scleral Lenses

Scleral contacts can provide vision correction for people whose cornea shape, eye sensitivity, or eye condition prevents them from being a candidate for standard contact lenses.


Whelpley & Paul Webster has been a collector of standout and artisanal eyewear since they were founded, offering timeless looks, unique styles, and everything in between.

Contact Lenses

Contact lenses can be a source of comfortable, clear vision, but a proper fit is critical. Your eye doctor will provide a contact lens exam and fitting, then help you choose from a range of trusted brands.
