Dr. Kenneth Sawyer was born in Charleston, SC. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in biology/pre-med at the University of Cincinnati and then pursued an Optometry degree and graduated with honors from Nova Southeastern University College in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
While at Nova Southeastern, he became proficient with conversational Spanish and was president of the local optometric Honor Society club, Beta Sigma Kappa (BSK), where he ran mock clinic drills for fellow class members. Externship experience was spent at Commonwealth Eye Assoc. in Lexington, KY, one of the busiest surgery/referral/comanagement centers in KY. It is here where extensive cataract preoperative, post-operative and referral optometry lessons were learned.
Dr. Sawyer has over 10 years’ experience in LASIK, having worked closely with Dr. Vince Marino at LASIKplus in Cincinnati. Dr. Sawyer says “it’s thrilling to share in the experience of new found vision that patients enjoy after undergoing this transforming procedure.” Board Certified by the National Board of Examiners of Optometry, Dr. Sawyer also enjoys difficult to fit contact lenses, (scleral, keratoconus, etc.). Ken Sawyer, OD, was especially excited, after 14 years of practicing optometry, to join a progressive eye care leader, like Clemson Eye. He works closely with our team of doctors to deliver the very best care.
When Dr. Sawyer is not in the office, he enjoys spending time with his wife and three daughters. He is very interested in all things fitness, as well as being outdoors as much as possible. He and his family have a genuine love for all animals but are specifically enamored by their horses and all things equestrian.
