Can your vision problems be resolved with LASIK? Each client has unique eyesight issues, and only comprehensive testing and a full review of your medical history will establish if this is the right procedure for you.

LASIK techniques continue to advance; the treatment now delivers an astounding level of clarity and definition -- and is safer than ever. Most people who are living with nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism will be found to be good candidates for LASIK, with just a few exceptions.

As the eye structure ages, cataracts develop, a hardening of the lens that results in cloudy, blurred vision, faded colors, halos, glare and other symptoms. It takes a highly skilled eye doctor in Charleston, SC to help remedy this condition.

Cataracts are irreversible, and clear, sharp vision can only be restored with surgery. Advances in medical technology have led to the development of safer, more effective surgical procedures and the release of interocular lenses that provide exceptionally clear, sharp focus near and far. The Doctors at Waring Vision are recognized authorities on advanced cataract surgical techniques, and will personally advise you about the latest treatment options to restore clear vision.

Only a surgical replacement of the natural lens in the eye can resolve cataracts – a hardening of the lens. Due to this, it is important you carefully choose the top eye doctor in Mt Pleasant, South Carolina for you.

As the eye structure ages, the proteins clump, leading to cloudy vision and dulled colors, and if left untreated, cataracts may result in eventual blindness. Thankfully, the condition can be resolved with a specialized, painless surgical technique to extract the damaged lens and replace it with a synthetic lens that produces clear, sharp images. Dr. George Waring can help you restore high definition vision with the latest generation of multifocus or monofocus synthetic lenses. All surgical procedures are performed with breakthrough, safer surgical techniques and our state-of-the-art technology. dr. Waring is a leading Ophthalmologist in Charleston SC.

The staff and surgical team are very professional. Natalie keeps the office moving and is very impressive. Now about Dr. Waring - you will not meet a more down-to-earth, confident, knowledgeable professional. A man who loves what he does and is very focused but has a great sense of humor! We were so happy with the process and outcome. It is well worth the trips from Bluffton to Charleston.”

Detection & Prevention

Waring Vision Gray Logo

Are you developing cataracts? The hardening of the natural lens can develop due to aging, eye injuries, and certain eye conditions.

To keep your eyes healthy and ward off cataract development, it is vital that you avoid extensive sun exposure and understand the risks associated with taking certain medications – and ensure you have a comprehensive yearly eye exam. The first indication that you are developing cataracts is typically blurred or distorted vision, muted or brown areas of vision, and halos appearing around lights. Early treatment of cataracts is vital, as if the lens continues to harden, it creates inflammation in the eye structure which can lead to permanent vision loss.

Waring Vision Client Testimonials


I came here because all the reviews are 5 star. After my own experience I am leaving a 5 star review as well. I had lasik last week and the entire process was fabulous. The staff is kind and knowledgable and did everything to make me feel comfortable. Plus, my vision is now better than perfect! I never write reviews... but seriously if you're reading through reviews to try and find the right place, go here!!!


Office is well managed and everyone is wearing masks. Check in as a new client was a breeze. The tech that checked my vision and performed other tests was very knowledgeable and pleasant. Dr. Boiwka was great she explained test results and showed me and explained pictures of my eye. I was very happy with this visit and will return.
