An Invitation to You

As you visit the SCSO web site and other public sources, we strongly URGE and INVITE you to learn more about the extensive medical school education and specialized medical training of an ophthalmologist (EYE-MD) in our delivery of vision, medical and surgical eye care. We hope by doing so you will develop a better understanding and appreciation as to why the ophthalmologist (EYE-MD) is truly the most highly educated and medically trained provider of routine eye examinations as well as medical or surgical care for eye diseases or elective surgical procedures. Please contact us directly for further information on the valuable services available from the EYE-MDs of South Carolina.



The SCSO maintains one of the lowest annual budgets on administration and overhead in its class size and demographic profile while contemporaneously delivering the highest level of state society lobbying support and advocacy contributions in its class and size for the entire nation!
