LASIK & Refractive Surgery Services
Magill Laser Center

Tired of the hassle and expense of contacts or glasses, thousands of people throughout South Carolina have found freedom through LASIK and vision correction procedures at the Magill Laser Center of the Storm Eye Institute.

As South Carolina’s first and most highly regarded laser vision correction center, our expert physicians utilize the latest and most technologically advanced lasers, as well as innovative implantable lens options. The Magill Laser Center was the first in South Carolina to perform LASIK and now is the first in the country to have the most advanced technology — the blade-free Alcon Wavelight EX500 refractive suite — the fastest laser of its type, designed for safety and accuracy.

We are dedicated to providing you with clear, natural vision. The physicians and staff will consult with you on your options, answer all your questions and make your comfort a priority throughout the process. The physicians at the Magill Laser Center of the Storm Eye Institute pride themselves on helping you change the way you see the world.


LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) reshapes the cornea using a laser and restores the eye’s ability to focus properly, thus eliminating the need for corrective eyewear.

The Magill Laser Center of the Storm Eye Institute utilizes the WaveLight refractive technology to safely and effectively reshape your eyes in a two-step procedure to restore ideal vision. Many people notice almost immediate improvement and the ability to perform daily tasks without the aid of glasses or contacts.

LASIK may not be the answer for everyone. Individuals with dry eyes, thin corneas, advanced vision loss, or other conditions may benefit from other vision correction options. Our expert physicians will consult with you about the best approach for you.


PRK or photorefractive keratectomy, also known as advanced surface ablation (ASA), is a vision correction option for people with thin corneas. The procedure is similar to LASIK and also uses the Wavelight refractive technology, but without creating a flap.

To find out what the best option for vision correction is for you, call 843-792-2020 to schedule an individual consultation.
