West Ashley Eye Care Services

We offer a breadth of eye care, all in one place, with services tailored for the whole family —pediatric myopia management, treatment for dry eye, eyewear shopping, and anything in between. No matter what you’re here for, we ensure that your patient experience is comfortable and curated for you.

With low wait times and pre-testing taking just five minutes, our eye doctors are conscious of your busy schedule, and meet all your eye care needs as efficiently as possible!

Comprehensive Eye Exams

At Lowcountry Eye Care, our eye exams are not just a once-over, but are truly comprehensive. First, we check your outer eye — your lids, lashes, and tear quality — and then your inner eye with state-of-the-art diagnostic technology. With options like our non-dilation Optos retinal imaging, we can ensure your exam is not only thorough, but customizable and comfortable!

Glasses

The right eyewear can make all the difference in your clarity and confidence. Our opticians will walk you through our extensive selection of lens and frame options to find the fit and style for you. With lens treatments like anti-glare and blue light reduction, our tailored glasses mean you’ll always have vision perfection, protection, and fashion.

Eye Disease Management

Eye diseases, such as dry eye, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and cataracts are common causes of vision loss and discomfort. What’s more — they often begin without noticeable symptoms. Lowcountry Eye Care is equipped to spot your conditions early and manage any issues, so your vision will stay healthy for years to come.

Contacts and Specialty Lenses

Some patients prefer contact lenses for their needs and lifestyle, which is why we’re experts in a variety of contact lens types. We offer scleral, astigmatism, and myopia managing lenses, so you can wear contacts even if you normally struggle with them. Out contact lens experts will show you how to wear and care for your contacts, and even get free replacements for ripped lenses.

What Our Patients Says...

Quote Icon“This location is phenomenal. The office itself is bright and well put together. The equipment all seemed incredibly upgraded and at great quality, but my favorite party of Low Country Eye Care of Goose Creek is the staff! All of the staff and the doctor was professional, kind, and made my experience easy. I will definitely be back.”

Quote Icon“I am 70 and have not seen 20/20 since an eye injury in 2014. Other doctors (Opthamologists) have told me to be satisfied with the vision I have and be thankful the injury wasn’t worse. Dr. Ryan Scharadin used his knowledge and patience to keep working with me (two appointments) until I now have 20/20 – for the first time in 8 years. I didn’t think it was possible. I recommend Dr. Scharadin in the highest terms – amazing.”

Quote Icon“Dr McCormack is a 5 star optometrist because she is thorough, kind, respectful, and aware of all that is new in optometric field. Dr McCormack follows through, if there is a need to see another Doctor in her field, which happened to me. She followed through to make sure I made the appointment and see if the diagnosis was consistent to her own . I cannot say enough about this optometrist, but a honor to have been able to get on her schedule to been seen. That is another reason she is a 5 star Optometrist.”
