Cataracts and Aging Eyes

Over 3 million people undergo cataract correction surgery each year. It is a safe, convenient, comfortable and effective procedure. At Magill Vision Center, we offer the latest in premium cataract surgery technology. Not only does a cataract procedure fix the problem of cataracts, we give patients better vision than they may have had in their youth.

With age, the lenses that help your eyes focus becomes hard, yellow and cloudy, which blocks and scatters light, causing blurry vision and problems with glare. To restore vision that has been lost or impaired by a cataract, the cloudy lens must be removed and replaced with a clear artificial lens implant.

With today's advanced procedures offered at Magill Vision Center, you now have a choice in the type of lens that is implanted during cataract surgery, diminishing or eliminating the need for glasses or contact lenses. Lens options include monofocal, multifocal and accommodating IOLs.

Magill Vision Center was the first in South Carolina to perform Laser-Assisted Cataract surgery with the Catalys Precision Laser System on August 20, 2013 by George Waring, IV, MD. Read about this innovative approach to cataract treatment and watch a short video about the process.

We have three surgeons who are now certified to use this revolutionary technology – Dr. Lynn Poole-Perry, Dr. Matthew Nutaitis, and Dr. George Waring IV.
