Providing Eye Surgery in Charleston, Summerville, Ladson & The Surrounding Areas

About The Practice

Lowcountry Eye Specialists, also known as The Cataract and Laser Center of Charleston, is the comprehensive ophthalmology practice of Dr Jay Thompson. Just off the I-26, we are located near the intersection of Ladson Road and Highway 78, convenient to the greater North Charleston, Summerville, Ladson, Goose Creek, Hanahan, and Moncks Corner areas. 

The practice was founded in 2008 and has experienced rapid growth due to our relentless commitment to providing compassionate, state of the art, evidence-based medical and surgical eye care in a modern, comfortable office. The entire staff at Lowcountry Eye Specialists has the singular goal of making every patient’s experience superlative in every way. 

We make every attempt to have same day appointments available for emergency or urgent cases. In addition, Dr Thompson keeps an open line of communication with his patients’ other doctors, sharing all pertinent findings, his treatment plan, and even makes his cell number available to all of his patients and referring doctors so that they can call him at night or on weekends with any questions or concerns.

In October of 2012 we moved into our brand new facility, clearly visible on Highway 78. This much needed expansion allows us to continue the same personal, cutting-edge care in a larger patient-oriented space. We plan to be here for years to come with the goal of being the premiere provider of medical and surgical eye care to the North Area.
