Walking into an eye exam at Waring Vision Institute is not just another mundane clinical visit — rather, it’s a visual experience. As you are greeted by fine artwork and a gallery-like atmosphere – an ode to all that eyesight has to offer a person – a sense of serenity and quality immediately become evident in this practice of George O. Waring, IV, MD, FACS, founder and medical director.
Offering vision correction solutions for most people age 18 and over and voted Mount Pleasant’s Best LASIK Surgeon for 2021 and among the Best Eye Doctors in Mount Pleasant, Dr. Waring prides himself and his practice on offering the gold standard in the industry. Waring Vision Institute has become a destination health care opportunity for many across the nation.
Besides staying active in research and development and the latest advances in technology, Dr. Waring performed the first commercial implant in the world of its kind for astigmatism correction, which was featured on the front page of the Post and Courier. He authored the definitive text book on lasers in cornea and lens surgery, and he is the first surgeon in the country to perform high-speed LASIK.
At Waring Vision Institute, there is no “one-frame-fits all” approach to vision procedures. Because of their ability to individualize for patient needs, Dr. Waring is able to offer seven vision-corrective procedures. Additionally, the facility’s advanced vision analysis center takes the patient on a digital tour of the entire eye.
“Our clients enjoy this, and it really helps in the educational process as well as the decision-making process,” Dr. Waring explained.
Dr. Waring also mentioned that because of his institute’s “vision for a lifetime paradigm,” he is able to manage a patient’s eye care through his or her varying stages of ocular maturity. Often, a satisfied patient will refer family and friends, something he has found incredibly rewarding.
Expanding upon the vision for a lifetime paradigm, Dr. Waring stated, “You may wear contact lenses or glasses as a teenager or in your early 20s, many of which may consider LASIK. Then in your mid-40s to early 50s, you may need reading glasses or bifocals, which the custom lens replacement procedure corrects. And then in your 60s and 70s, you may develop cataracts, for which we perform laser cataract surgery with advanced lens implants. Whether you’re 18, 48 or 98, we have a vision solution for you at each stage of ocular maturity.”
Reflecting on the success and renowned status his practice has gained in a relatively short amount of time, Dr. Waring concluded, “We’ve gone to great lengths to create a world-class experience that’s second to none. We want our clients to say it’s not only the best experience for their eyes but the best experience in health care, period.”
