LASIK surgery is a common vision correction procedure that reshapes the cornea providing lasting relief for common vision problems. After LASIK, most people no longer need to wear glasses. The procedure uses beams of light instead of hand-held surgical instruments which offers more precise care with fewer complications. Our team delivers safe, effective care that you can count on.

MUSC Health Storm Eye Institute is home to South Carolina’s first laser vision correction center. At the Magill Laser Center, you receive care from some of the foremost laser eye surgery experts in the country. We combine our expertise with today’s most innovative treatments to correct your vision.
Highlights of our program include:
LASIK surgery reshapes the cornea (transparent front layer of the eye), providing lasting relief for common vision problems such as nearsightedness. After LASIK, most people no longer need to wear glasses for nearsightedness. You may still need reading glasses.
During photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), we remove the cornea’s thin outer layer before reshaping it. Your eye grows a new outer layer as you heal. PRK may be right for you if you have thin corneas and cannot have LASIK.
