Why I Chose Griffin Eye Center Myrtle Beach for Cataract Surgery

I was recently diagnosed with cataracts, and I knew two things for sure based on my 20+ year career in Ophthalmology, along with being privy to hundreds of positive patient and family reviews.

I was going to get a “PanOptix Multifocal lens” implant and Dr. Neil Griffin was going to be my cataract surgeon.

Sounded simple… Well, it was!

From my first visit to Griffin Eye Center and each that followed, I was greeted and checked in and out by Debbie, Heather and Amy, and they ALWAYS made me feel welcome.  Abbie, Ben, Bryce, Jen, Kelly, and Tina were all very knowledgeable, professional, and efficient at each of my visits.

Dr. Griffin’s reputation precedes him in both states I have worked (NC and SC.) I felt excited and honored to have such a skilled surgeon performing my cataract surgery and his knowledge, confidence and skill level did NOT disappoint!

The transition from Griffin Eye Center to Grand Dunes Surgery center has been seamless.  Together they make a great team making you feel secure throughout each step.

I have heard hundreds of patient testimonials in my career along with my own family members regarding Dr. Griffin and Griffin Eye Center. Now, I can proudly say; “My vision is AMAZING! I can read my phone, menus, and a book without glasses. I can see my computer at work, labels, and tags at the store without glasses. My distance vision has never been so crisp and sharp with colors now so vibrant!”

A simple thank you does not seem to express the level of gratitude I have for living the rest of my life glasses free.

I know it was just another day at the office for all that was a part of my cataract journey.

But, to me it has been a LIFE CHANGING event.

A heartfelt Thank You to Dr. Griffin, his wonderful staff, and Grand Dunes Surgery Center.
