Meet the Doctor

Dr ClementWesley D. Clement, MD has been serving Charlotte for over 35 years in the practice of Ophthalmology and Refractive surgical procedures. He began performing IOL Implantation in 1977, Radial Keratotomy from 1990-97, and has limited his expertise and experience to Laser-vision Refractive procedures since 2001. Carolinas Eye Center and MedSpa is now celebrating 10 years of Laser-vision corrective procedures only with over 20,000 laser-vison procedures having been performed here at our state-of-the-art facility. Dr. Clement is the past president of the Charlotte Ophthalmology Society and member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. He is also a member of the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine.

The Carolinas Eye Center staff has almost 10 years of surgical experience in assisting in these Laser refractive procedures. Both are well educated with the Custom Wavefront-guided Laser treatment using the VISX S4 IR excimer laser, one of the leading excimer lasers for vision-corrective surgery. We offer Lasik and PRK (bladeless) for the correction of all refractive errors, myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and offer Monovision to rid people of their dependency on bifocals and readers. They each share my desire to provide patients with the best possible experience and best possible surgical outcome.

I invite you to browse our website and get a “feel” for our facility and learn about the various services we provide, whether consultation for lasik surgery or general eye exams for cataracts, glaucome, disorders of the cornea, presbyopia or about our VISX S4 IR excimer laser or any refractive problem that you may have. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call our office.

DR C 3


 Yo usaba los mismos anteojos (lentes de aumento) desde hace 10 años pues nunca me había hecho un examen de los ojos desde entoces y además estaba cansada de usarlos.  Un día, una amiga me contó que se había hecho la cirugía láser con el Dr. Wesley Clement para no usar más lentes y estaba muy contenta. Me interesó, pero igual seguí usando mis viejos anteojos con los cuales ya no podía leer la letra pequeña ni ver bien de lejos. Entonces decidí visitar al Dr. Clement y hacerme la cirugía de la monovisión con láser. Al día siguiente de la cirugía y después de 10 años de usar anteojos, me sentí feliz, pues ya no usaba lentes y podía ver claro de lejos y de cerca.  Estoy muy agradecida con el Dr. Clement. Que Dios bendiga sus manos para que den luz a los que la necesitamos.


jackie In 1992 I had RK surgery on my eyes to correct  my vision at the age of 30.  After 20 years , I had to wear glasses all the time.  I was not able to see the numbers on the clock lying in bed and had tom purchase a clock with large number display.  Watching TV without my glasses was impossible.  Everything was blurry.  A friend suggested Dr. Clement for LASIK.  I was concerned because that I had RK surgery he would be unable to do the LASIK.  He was able to do the surgery and I am very happy with the results.  I am able to watch TV, and can even see the numbers on the clock, even the smaller clock.  Now I don’t have to dig in my night stand drawer to find my glasses in the middle of the night or when I get up in the morning.   Having the LASIK surgery was one of the best decisions I have made to make my life simpler.

BINNIEI came to Dr. Clement 12 ½ years ago for LASIK Eye Surgery on both eyes.  I was so thrilled that I could see again without glasses!  This past Spring I returned to Dr. Clement because as I was told in the beginning, as you age your eyes gradually become worse and Dr. Clement performed PRK enhancement on both eyes.  I am almost 70 years old and I can read the fine print of medication bottles, the small print in the phone book and so far just about anything.  I would highly recommend Dr. Clement for your eye needs.  I drive and hour to his office but, it’s worth it.  His staff is wonderful and Dr. Clement is the best!
