Meet Dr. Panday

Stone Oak Ophthalmology is absolutely thrilled to welcome Dr. Vasudha Panday to our team of doctors! Dr. Panday received her medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. She completed her residency training in Ophthalmology at the prestigious Wills Eye Hospital, the nation’s first ophthalmology training program. She then enhanced her training with a fellowship in the subspecialty of Cornea, External Disease, and Refractive Surgery at the renowned Wilmer Eye Institute of Johns Hopkins Hospital.

The United States Air Force brought Dr. Panday from the Northeast to San Antonio. She served eight years of active duty at Wilford Hall Medical Center on Lackland Air Force Base. During that time, she held a myriad of leadership roles, including Chief of the Cornea/Refractive Surgery Service, Director of the Joint Warfighter Refractive Surgery Center, and Refractive Surgery Consultant to the Air Force Surgeon General. She was also the Associate Program Director of the largest Ophthalmology residency program in the Department of Defense. She rose to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force prior to departing and joining private practice.

Throughout her career, Dr. Panday has taught numerous ophthalmology residents, published many journal articles, and spoken at national and international conferences. She serves on the American Board of Ophthalmology, the certifying body for new ophthalmologists. She also volunteers her time to train and certify ophthalmic technicians.

Dr. Panday has been married for over 20 years to her husband Manoj, who is a Cardiac Electrophysiologist. They have two sons, Ajay and Ashwin, who love to travel, read, and play with their guinea pig, Peanut.

"If you’re thinking about LASIK, I highly recommend Dr. Whitney and staff. From start to finish she was very thorough and professional. She is very knowledgeable and addresses any questions or concerns you may have. I’m so happy with my results and only wished I’d done it sooner."



"Dr. Whitney saw my 7 year old daughter for a stye and was very thorough with the process of treating her problem. We did the entire regimen like she instructed and it started looking much better within the next two days. She checked up on her few days later to make sure everything was healing well. I highly recommend anyone with any eye issues to come see her and her wonderful staff. I had a pleasant experience from beginning to end."



"Dr. Teresa Whitney performed cataract surgery on both my left and right eyes in August 2020, and she did an absolutely AWESOME job! Like many, I was terrified of the procedure, and had deferred it for many years, until I was nearly blind - OK, I was legally blind. With GREAT anxiety, I submitted myself to Dr. Whitney's care, and I emerged from the first surgery absolutely amazed at the results. I was back her table a week later for the other eye, FAR less concerned with both the procedure and the outcome. I am now 20:20 in both eyes, no longer need glasses of any kind, and have for the first in over a decade, had the eyeglass restriction removed from my driver's license! I can honestly say, I'm very sorry that I have but only two eyes, or I'd be a repeat patient. Thank you, Dr. Whitney, for restoring my eyesight!!"



"Dr. Whitney is excellent, caring and very professional. Her staff is professional, helpful and caring. Dr. Whitney’s surgery provided me with a 20/20 vision and I’m very grateful for that. I highly recommend."



"I am so please that I was recommended to this office as well to Dr. Allison Young. The office and the personal are professional and cheerful. I have Sjögren’s Syndrome which drys everything in your body. I honestly though I was going blind and I was seeing another ophthalmologist in a huge chain operation and it seems like I was going in every three months. I honestly couldn’t see. Dr Young saw me on the first visit and explained that I had a very large cataract in my right eye and it needed to be removed. I was extremely petrified but Dr. Young has the type of additive you want every Doctor to have. It was such an easy operation for me, Dr. Young said that it was so big it took her awhile to get it out. The difference was amazing I see amazing I was so amazed how little I was seeing before. So excited to get the other eye done. The after care was just as through as the pre-op. I recommend this Ophthalmology Center and Dr. Young. Today is January 8th of 2021 and the day before this I had a very gritty feeling in my right eye when I woke up. Just thinking it was my Sjogren's I put in the eye drops and it helped but I had double vision for the day. Knowing I could call Stone Oak Ophthalmology and find out if I need to see a Dr or just find out what I could do. They wanted to get me in but I live a across town and they got me an appointment right away the next day. I saw Dr. Whitney and just like Dr. Young, she took her time took the tests (she explained each test and her reason for taking them) and ended up finding out that I had Shingles in my right eye. I was then told it was a very good thing that I came in because it could be worse the longer you wait. I trust this office and my eye health whole heartily. I have always been treated with respect, professionalism, COVID responsible and I know my appointment was done to it's fullest to help both of us to understand what is happening with my eyes. Again I was afraid my eyesight was going to be gone and I have walked in there and them out knowing everything was being done that could be done. I also got to meet another one of these wonderful Doctors. Thank you Dr. Whitney, I'm not thrilled with having Shingles but thank you for informing me that getting the Shingles Shot is not a 100% it just makes it less infectious. I maybe miserable but it could of been a lot worse with out your insisting we do the testing and your hands on care it could be worse. If you are someone who needs an Ophthalmologist this is the group to go to."
