About Palmetto
Eye & Laser Center

In the early 1970’s, Doctors Robert Haas and Michael Holmes, opened the doors to what is now called, Palmetto Eye and Laser Center.

They were dedicated to providing the best patient care and offering the latest technology for cataract surgery. The practice was able to flourish and expand by adding more incredibly talented surgeons throughout the years.



  • "Dr. Billy Haguewood and the entire staff took great care of me during my consultation and first cataract surgery. He took time to explain completely to me the process and my options. I'm due to have my second one done in a week and a half. This cataract will be more difficult to remove because it has been with me, we think, since birth, and no other doctor has ever given me hope that it could successfully be removed. I am not hoping for 20/20 vision after this surgery, but if I gain ANY vision at all, it will be miraculous for me."
  • “I could not ask for a more professional approach to patient care. Patient (pun intended) and thoughtful answers to all questions. A little bit of "up-selling" /options (expected!) but NO pressure what so ever. What is best for me, including costs, are their priority. From entry to exit, EVERYONE made me feel comfortable and "at home". Well Done. Dr. Jake Paul Bostrom is a gem.”

  • “Very impressed with Dr. Wickliffe and her staff. My mother recently had surgery and I tell everyone how great the experience was. Morgan is so delightful , I probably called her more times than I should have but she answered every question thoroughly and professional. She never got annoyed like some nurses do . My mother and I both enjoyed her cheerfulness. Dr. Wickliffe is wonderful and has the best bedside manor. This is one dr office we do not dread coming to. .”
