Eyecare Patient Portal
  • When I heard the words, "I only wish I'd done it sooner!" from so many patients, I began to think about ways to help future patients shorten the time they spend thinking about LASIK. The following are major questions most people have about whether they should replace their glasses and contacts with the clear natural vision that only LASIK can provide:

    • What assurance can you give me that I'll achieve 20/20?
    • How much of a risk will I be taking? What's the truth about complications?
    • What makes you better than any other surgeon I might find in Charleston?
    • How affordable is it really? Will it all be worth it?

    We've designed this website so you can get answers to these questions easily.
    Pick a tab, start your journey, and may your life never be restricted
    by poor vision again!

  • Astigmatism, nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia (or the need for reading glasses due to age) and cataracts. These are the major vision conditions that reduce our enjoyment of life and create dependency on glasses and contacts. With today's vision correction technologies, each one of these can be solved. Learn how here.


  • LASIK solves the 'refractive error' that causes astigmatism, nearsightedness, far sightedness, and even presbyopia. Dr. David O’Day has performed more than 45,000 refractive procedures, making him one of the nation’s most experienced refractive surgeons.


  • Cataracts come to all of us at some time, and usually start developing after the ages of 45-50. Cataract surgery is the most common surgical procedure in the world – and one of the safest. Advances in replacement lens technology (IOLs) mean that virtually anyone can gain freedom from the effects of cataracts – and achieve better vision than ever.


  • The cornea is the clear, living tissue on the very front part of the eye. Occasionally, either through disease or injury, surgery is needed to restore full vision or arrest declining eyesight. Dr. David O’Day is skilled and experienced at performing the following corneal procedures

    • CORNEAL TRANSPLANTS
    • KERATACONUS
    • CORNEAL DYSTROPHIES
    • INTACS PROCEDURE
