Myrtle Beach LASIK and Contoura Surgeon Dr. Neil Griffin

Neil B. Griffin, M.D., is one of the foremost LASIK specialists in the Myrtle Beach region. While refractive surgery can sometimes be an impersonal procedure at other vision centers, Dr. Griffin prides himself on using the latest vision technology available to personalize the surgery and best treat your unique set of eyes.

Dr. Griffin was the first ophthalmologist in all of South Carolina to provide SMILE (small incision lenticule extraction), a refractive surgery that is similar to LASIK. He also performs Contoura, a custom LASIK procedure for patients with refractive errors and corneal irregularities. The Contoura technology is used to create a customized map of the patient’s cornea, which is the used to come up with a treatment plan that addresses the patient’s individual needs.

LASIK Surgery in Myrtle Beach

LASIK uses an ultraviolet laser to reshape the cornea by removing a small amount of corneal tissue. Once the cornea’s curvature is improved, light rays will refract more normally, thereby helping the patient’s vision to become less blurry.

The surgery itself is safe, quick and pain-free thanks to anesthetic drops that numb the eye. Patients may experience mild discomfort in the day following LASIK; most will see a marked improvement in their vision within a day or two.

Patients may be better candidates for SMILE or Contoura surgeries as an alternative to LASIK. During the initial consultation, Dr. Griffin assesses the patient’s eligibility for refractive surgery, then reviews the advantages and disadvantages of each procedure so that the patient can make a fully informed decision with regard to treatment.

Beyond laser vision correction, Dr. Griffin and the team at Griffin Eye Center treat cataracts, astigmatism and serious corneal conditions. For more information about any of these procedures, please contact his Myrtle Beach office at (843) 449-6414.
