Thomas J. Newland, MD

Oculoplastics Orbital Neuro-Ophthalmic Surgery Comprehensive Ophthalmology Cataract, Laser, and Refractive Surgery

Dr. Thomas Newland, MD is a board-certified ophthalmologist and ophthalmic surgeon. He completed his undergraduate degree at the College of Charleston and continued to attend medical school locally at the Medical University of South Carolina.

Dr. Newland moved to Detroit to complete his residency in ophthalmology at Wayne State University’s Kresge Eye Institute. Returning to Charleston, he completed an internship in internal medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina. 

Dr. Newland is the recipient of several prestigious awards and recognitions. During his time at the Kresge Eye Institute, he was named chief resident. Additionally, he has received the Barsky Prize for Best Resident Presentation, first-place recognition for the Third Congress of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery Film Festival video entitled “Influence of Optic Style and Haptic Angulation on Area of Contact,” and the Annual Dean’s Award from College of Charleston.

Dr. Newland’s excitement for ophthalmology stems from variation in daily tasks and the ability to incorporate modern technology into his practice. 

He says, “I enjoy ophthalmology, as it offers a combination of medicine and surgery. The surgery aspect is intricate in comparison to most other surgical specialties, and the physics aspect of ophthalmology is fascinating; both allow me to use all the various cutting-edge gadgets to help my patients improve their sight.” 

Of his work with his patients at Carolina Eyecare Physicians, Dr. Newland most values his leadership position as part of an incredible team with one focus: helping patients maintain optimal vision for life. 

He explains, “in the context of team-based care, leadership is the consistent use of a physician’s knowledge, skills, and expertise to identify, engage, and elicit from each team member the unique set of contributions needed to help patients achieve their care goals. Our leadership and our team are dedicated to providing care to families to help keep them healthy and prevent negative visual outcomes.”

When he’s not caring for his patients in the office, Dr. Newland enjoys taking a day off to focus on enjoying quality family time, working on small projects, fishing, sailing, and hunting.
