My story has a happy ending, and it’s thanks to Dr. George Waring. For many years I managed with extreme nearsightedness and astigmatism that was corrected with contact lenses - until I developed contact lens intolerance from prolonged use. Glasses were too thick to wear safely for any length of time. I was running out of options, and my quality of life was looking to take a serious downturn. It was my very good fortune to be referred to Dr. Waring. From the very first contact, Dr. Waring and his staff were highly professional and caring, and consistently so. This is a first class, high quality team. I felt I was in good hands and in the right place. Dr. Waring performed Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) surgery on both eyes, and it has truly been a miracle for me. I can see better now than I could with contact lenses. Thanks to Dr. Waring’s exceptional skill and thoughtful care, I can continue working and enjoying life. I am grateful beyond words for this amazing outcome. Nancy D.

Dr . George O Waring IV is the Best ! After he did my husband cataract surgery on both eyes a couple of years ago with excellent results, I promise myself that if I needed to have my cataract removed he will be the one to do it ,and so he did mine on both eyes about a month ago with the same superb results. He also diagnosed that I have glaucoma and he put a stent in both eyes. Thank you so much Dr Waring for the excellent care, My vision on both eyes is now 20/20 and could really see clearly that now I even see a tiny speck of dirt in my house that my husband is complaining that I am always cleaning. I highly recommend Dr . George 0 Waring Vision Institute . All the staff were caring and kind . Thank you all!

Dr. Waring and his team are superb. To the high-tech imaging devices available; friendly, knowledgeable staff, state pf the art laser equipment; to the beautiful office; everything about the experience is top notch. My astigmatism was diagnosed many years ago as being caused my degenerative keratoconus; however, the specialists I visited said that there were no treatments for the disease. I had done enough research to know about a revolutionary corneal cross-linking and Intacs treatment that I knew helped similar cases to myself. After choosing to make an appointment at Dr. Waring, I found that treatment. His staff knew exactly what trouble I was facing and how important it was to reverse the degeneration. Dr. Waring's process not only saved my eye from needing an eventual transplant, but also improved my vision. Thanks to all the staff at the office for making this possible.
If You're Looking for Eye Surgery Excellence
Self-verified patient of Dr. George O Waring IV - Posted on May 31st, 2018
A year and a half ago I was faced with the challenge of selecting a surgeon for cataract removal and eliminating growths on the cornea of one eye. My primary selection criteria was “surgical excellence.” After doing considerable research and talking to a number of people, I selected Dr. George Waring of the Waring Vision Institute in Mt. Pleasant, S.C. Dr. Waring has proved to be everything I wanted in an eye surgeon. Before the surgeries, my vision was poor for both distance and up close reading. Now that my healing is complete I am delighted to say that both my distance and up close vision are much sharper. In fact, I’m now 20-20 in both eyes. No longer do I require glasses for driving and for reading/working on the computer.
