We innovate and collaborate to make Clemson Eye the ideal choice for eye care
Clemson Eye’s vision is to “transform lives” by offering innovative medical and surgical eye care. Located in beautiful Upstate South Carolina, we have nine convenient office locations in Anderson, Clemson, Clinton/Laurens, Easley, Greenville, Newberry, Saluda and Simpsonville.

For over 40 years, we have served a large and diverse patient population comprised of over 500,000 residents from Upstate counties from children to seniors. Clemson Eye has an outstanding reputation in the Upstate for advanced medical and surgical eye care.
