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.

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. Dr. George Waring is a recognized authority on advanced cataract surgical techniques, and will personally advise you about the latest treatment options to restore clear vision.

Cataracts Treatment

Ophthalmologist Charleston

Only a surgical replacement of the natural lens in the eye can resolve cataracts – a hardening of the lens.

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.

“What a fantastic experience and a perfect outcome. My husband had cataracts removed and some laser surgery as well and his vision is restored to better than 20-20! 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

South Carolina's Best Eye Doctor

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.
