Testimonials

  • The staff were professional and friendly. Dr. O’Day’s advice and recommendations gave me confidence to choose the Restor implant.  I love the vision that my Restor lens implants have provided, especially my near vision. Now I can read without glasses! The lenses are expensive, but I think of them as an investment that I will enjoy every day. If I did it over, I would have this lens again for sure!

    Cataracts Procedure

    - Mr. Jerry Prosser

  • I feel that these Crystalens lenses act as closely to my natural lens as I could expect. Distance and intermediate vision is excellent! Fine reading and dim lighting require reading glasses at times. Life without glasses is wonderful!

    - Mr. Arthur Bailey

  • Dr. Laurie Elliott devoted hours of her time to ‘getting it right’ when it came to the lens selection process. Her pre and post op commitment is as good as it gets!

  • My vision is great! Occasionally in the distance I notice a slight double vision in the distance with my Crystalens lenses. My experience with Charleston Cornea and Refractive Surgery was excellent! I would recommend this lens to anyone who is considering cataract surgery.

    Cataracts Procedure

    - Dr. James Carew

  • The Crystalens lenses provide me with excellent vision when considering each separately, and they provide me with excellent accommodation. I would say my vision is better than it has been for 20 years! If I had to do it again, I would choose this lens all over again.

  • Dr. O’Day and his staff are wonderful. I am happy that I chose the Crystalens and to have cataract surgery with Charleston Cornea and Refractive Surgery

    - Mr. James Ray

  • With the Crystalens I do not notice any glare or halos at night, but do require reading glasses at times

    Cataracts Procedure

    - Mrs. Cheryl Boulware

  • The Restor lenses have been a miracle for me. I am so pleased with my vision and cannot believe how bad my vision really was prior to surgery. The unfortunate thing is that the cost prohibits many people from having the premium lenses. This should be standard and covered by insurance!

    - Mrs. Sandy O'Neale

  • “Everyone at Charleston Cornea and Refractive Surgery was really good to me. If I had a question, they would explain everything to me. They were easy to contact, even through email!”

  • I wish I had done this sooner! Before the Restor lens was implanted I wasn’t sure what my vision would be like, how the surgery would go. It was so easy!

  • Everyone was so thorough, so competent, it’s the most stress-free, pain-free procedure I’ve ever had! It’s a thrill to be able to go about my day without glasses! It’s wonderful to be able to sit out on the beach and see everything so clearly and then be able to read a book without reading glasses! Thank you!

    LASIK Procedure

    - Jane Brown

  • The procedure itself is fast and almost painless, but still one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I cannot describe what it means to me- only that 3 hours after the surgery I cried as I watched my kids play in the yard where yesterday they were just a blur. I saw individual drops of dew on grass this morning! Priceless!

    LASIK Procedure

  • I will recommend it to any and all that I come into contact with that are thinking about LASIK. I had worn corrective lenses of some type for 48 years and words fail to describe how good it felt to wake up and see the clock. Thanks a million!
