      Dr. McGarity says

      Dear Patients, In reviewing my HealthGrades survey, I see that one person has given me a below average rating. I know the details of this one particular survey, and I can assure you that we take this very seriously and constantly strive to be a welcoming ophthalmology practice. Our own internal surveys indicate that an overwhelming majority of our patients are extremely pleased with the care that I provide. Many of these patients responded that they would refer their own family and friends to us. Finally, many of those surveyed found our practice to be modern, safe, comforting and affordable. I encourage you to come find out why Restoration Eye Care is a preferred ophthalmology center of excellence within the region! 

      Warm regards,

      I had PRK surgery done on October 6th 2015. Dr. McGarry I didn't meet until the day of the surgery but all. My appointments leading up to the actual surgery went great. They are very friendly and professional at Restoration Eye Care. I had a great expierence and am so happy I got the PRK done. I have had no side effects or discomfort. I am. Just disappointed that I didn't have it done sooner. If you are looking G for a place in Columbia to go to, give Restoration Eye Care a call. Thanks!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
