clinical trials and technology

Dr. Solomon works closely with the leading manufacturers of precision surgical equipment, including instruments and intraocular lens implants, and engages in a variety of studies. Some studies of note that Dr. Solomon involves himself with include the FDA study of accelerated cross-linking and the Trulign Toric–accommodating lens. Solomon Eye Physicians and Surgeons is also proud to participate in the LENSAR laser system for Laser Refractive Cataract Surgery, which allows us to offer patients a more precise, custom procedure as unique to our practice as your eyes are to you.

As the medical director of Dimensions Surgery Center and co-founder of the Bowie Vision Institute, Dr. Solomon proudly offers the ORA Custom Cataract with VerifEye, which allows for real-time feedback in the operating room. Dr. Solomon uses the world’s first intraoperative Wavefront Aberrometer to ensure precise refractive outcomes for all of the FDA-approved presbyopia-correcting intraocular lenses (IOL): Restor, Tecnis Multifocal & Crystalens. Additionally, to correct astigmatism, the Alcon Toric, Tecnis Toric, and Trulign Accommodative lenses are available to his patients. For highly myopic patients, Dr. Solomon implants Visian ICLs, surgically implanted contact lenses that can give refractive correction to patients who are not advised to have LASIK or PRK. During cataract surgery, Dr. Solomon uses the TrueVision 3-D Guidance system, the only one of its kind in the state of Maryland, which allows for an easier and more accurate surgical procedure.

"Had cataract surgery here at the recommendation of some friends, and let me tell you, the service and the outcome of the surgery were great!  Everyone on Staff was personable and professional, and answered every one of my many questions.  Was very surprised to see the negative review of Tori - as far as I'm concerned, she should be nominated for sainthood, as much help as I received from her!  I'd definitely recommend Dr. Solomon and his Staff for your eye care needs."



"Dr. Solomon performed my PRK surgery some years back and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. He is by far the best eye doctor I've ever met and the only one I trust with my vision. My outcome was so good I took my grandmother to him for her cataract  surgery and she praises him on how good his bedside manners are and how professional he is. Very very happy and will be a patient of his for life."



"Dr. Solomon is by far the "best" eye surgeon EVER and on top of that, he's cool as ice"



"I've been a patient of Dr. Jonathan Solomon since April and I'm about to have ICL surgery with him on Monday!!!   I've been a glasses/contacts wearing woman since I was about 5 years old and the last fifteen to twenty years searching high and low in Boston, MA, Orlando, and now DC areas for a good doctor to preform LASIK or PRK and NO such luck because of too thin corneas or whatever!! Until now!! I found a truly highly esteemed Doctor!!! The staff in his office are truly stellar!!! Jasmine, Amanda, Nicole, and especially TORI you guys are the gold in the gold star!!! These women will assist with whatever you need to ensure your visits and surgery go well!! What a stellar office he has!! Counting the days till Monday and saying goodbye to lens/glasses hopefully forever!!!"



"It''s agreeable that choosing an doctor for any ailment is always a lottery. Keeping that in mind, I searched for what seemed like years before coming across Solomon Associates through a random Google search for a clinic that offered Visian ICL. To be honest, Dr. Solomon and his team surpassed my expectations through their professionalism and overall quality of care during the very first appointment. I'm happy to say that he and his team were the best encounter I've ever had with any health professional. Dr. Solomon is absolutely brilliant and truly adopts his patients eyes while his staff are a complete delight to work with and create a fun and uplifting atmosphere which has transformed my entire journey. I can't thank the team enough for not just their work but also their dedication!"
