Our Medical Team
Twelve doctors providing general ophthalmology, optometry, and sub-specialty services, including cataract surgery, glaucoma surgery, retinal surgery, a wide range of laser and refractive procedures, as well as all aspects of medical eye care.
If a cataract grows large enough to impair your vision, and affect your daily activities, cataract removal may be recommended. Cataract removal is a common procedure, and is safely performed millions of times each year. During the procedure, the cataract surgeon removes the clouded lens that has affected your vision, and replaces it with a clear, artificial, intraocular lens. As a result, most patients can achieve a noticeable improvement in their vision.
At Coastal Eye Group, our experienced ophthalmologists are some of the top cataract surgeons in South Carolina with an unsurpassed success rate. To lean more about cataract surgery, view the video featured here.
