OPHTHALMOLOGIST IN CHARLESTON

Robert Reuther, M.D. is a board-certified ophthalmologist and ophthalmic surgeon and a United States Coast Guard licensed captain. He completed his undergraduate education at Tulane University in New Orleans before pursuing his medical degree from Louisiana State University School of Medicine. Upon graduating, he completed his internship at Rush Presbyterian St. Luke’s Medical Center in Chicago and then his residency at Louisiana State University School of Medicine Charity Hospital in New Orleans.

Dr. Reuther is active in many local and national professional organizations. He currently serves on the South Carolina Board of Medicine, and he is a member of the Charleston Ophthalmologic Society and Aesculapian Honor Society. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery. Dr. Reuther was the Ophthalmology Course Director for the University Family Practice Residency Training Program and an Associate Professor at MUSC, where he was awarded Clinical Instructor of the Year, an honor bestowed upon him by physicians in training at the university.

Dr. Reuther is keenly focused on individualized patient care with the most cutting-edge technology available. He explained, “I enjoy offering patients the absolute best eye care with what is available to us today in a caring and compassionate manner. At Carolina Eyecare Physicians, we take the time to help each and every patient navigate through the different options of advanced cataract surgery to best fulfill their individual needs.” This focus on his patients is why he chose the field of ophthalmology. He said, “Is there anything more precious than the gift of sight? I felt compelled to study this area of medicine to ensure my patients have access to the latest technologies and procedures to preserve their vision. It is a fulfilling career, and I am grateful for the opportunity to help my patients see their best.”

When he’s not serving his patients, Dr. Reuther enjoys volunteering at Operation Sight; spending time with his wife, Karen (of 20-plus years), and his two daughters, Hannah and Emma; and participating in Ironman Triathlons (he’s completed 12!).
