“I was so nervous before surgery. I wanted to explore LASIK but was never a good candidate. I didn’t yet have cataracts but I was ready to get out of my glasses. My optometrist recommended I see Dr. Vroman to learn more about what options were available. After having a refractive lens exchange with the Toric lens my astigmatism was fixed and I no longer had to wear glasses or contacts. Before surgery I couldn’t see anyone; after surgery I could see everyone! The next morning I danced all the way to the bathroom. I think God has blessed Dr. Vroman with such a talent. He has done something for my life I cannot put into words. After 33 years of struggling to see, I can see at last!” – P. Goller

Amazing staff! Kristina at the front resolved what could have been an insurance issue immediately. The nurse who did my eye exam and dialted my eyes is a breath of fresh air, listened to my concerns and knew exactly what I needed to have done (I didn't get her name). This was my first visit and Dr. Ying is fantastic! Dr. Ying has an amazing bedside manner and personality you don't see that often anymore. She was professional, very knowledgeable, friendly and made me feel at ease. She also thoroughly educated me on my eye issues. I know that I am in great hands with Carolina Cataract & Laser Center!

I am an optometrist and I refer all my patients to Carolina cataract and laser center. They have the best team of doctors and staff, I myself also had surgery there and it went perfectly. Dr Budev was the surgeon for my cataract surgery and my result and vision far exceeded my expectations!

I had lens replacement surgery back in March. To say this has changed my life is an understatement! I began wearing glasses at 10 years of age. I wore glasses and eventually contacts (I started wearing contacts at about age 14 and only stopped wearing them when my astigmatism got to a level that I could no longer where them comfortably). When I had to resort to wearing glasses full time I knew I would not be able to continue for long. I managed two full years. I began researching options fast forward to November 2021 at the family get together. I was talking with my cousin Jessica Johnson Ross, who has worked in the vision field for many years and she said that I had to go to Dr. David Vroman over in Ladson, SC because he is the absolute best. She had worked at his practice until recently moving back home. The next week I called and scheduled my consult appt. To say the Dr. Vroman and his staff are exceptional would be a true understatement. From the ladies at the check-in counter, the technicians, and finally the doctor himself, everyone was attentive and efficient. Many times you see a specialist and feel like you have burdened them by taking up their time. Not Dr. Vroman. He was very personable and listened to my wishes for my vision carefully. I scheduled my first surgery that day. We decided that the PanOptic Multifocal lens would be the best option based on my vision needs. The surgical center staff was just as awesome as the staff at his practice. Dr. Vroman was very kind and listened to me and calmed me prior to the surgery. Again, very personable. In other words, when he talks to you, it is as if there is no one else around. He focuses on the patient and his/her needs. Fast forward a few months and I couldnt be happier with my vision!! I feel like colors are more vivid and I see details that I never noticed before (no I didnt have cataracts just really poor vision before) Granted I do need readers on occasion if the lighting is poor. Solution- adjust lighting no readers!! No more heavy glasses! Yes, there is some halo effect and yes it has improved significantly. Does it bother me?? Nothing like the distorted vision caused by the astigmatism. Halos have boundaries which I can make sense of when driving at night. Astigmatism light distortion has no boundaries which makes driving at night very difficult. My vision is 20/20 and I am beyond happy!!
