Some noteworthy studies include the FDA evaluation of accelerated corneal collagen cross-linking for the treatment of KeratoconusCorneal Ectasia and the Visian Toric Phakic Intraocular Lens. Solomon Eye Physicians & Surgeons is also proud to participate in the refinement of LENSAR LASER's STREAMLINE IV/Ally 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.

Dr. Solomon proudly offers and pioneered the application of the Callisto Guidance, which allows for Virtually Augmented-assisted feedback in the operating theatre. Dr. Solomon also uses 3D Surgical Guidance, the only one of it's kind in the DMV which ensures precise refractive outcomes for all of the FDA-approved presbyopia-correcting intraocular lenses (IOL): PanOptix, Vivity, Eyhance, Synergy, Tecnis Multifocal & the RxSight Light Adjustable Lens. Additionally, to correct astigmatism, the implantation of a wide-variety of Toric lenses are available to his patients. For Dr. Solomon's highly myopic patients , those who do not qualify for LASIK or PRK, he is a key opinion leader for the implantation of Visian ICLs; surgically implanted contact lenses that can give refractive correction and spectacle/contact lens freedom.

Reviews

"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!"

"ICL surgery went extremely well. I did have some eye pressure issues after surgery but the office gave me medicine to relieve the pressure and follow up appointments all free of charge. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. My eye prescription was -12.5 with astigmatism, now I see 20/20 without any type of lenses. Not bad for a 49 year old. I highly recommend Dr Solomon and his staff for your eye care."

"ICL surgery went extremely well. I initially went to Lasik but my eyes were too weak (-12.5 eye presecription with astigmatism), a little older than some at 49 and my corneas too thin. They recommended me to Dr. Solomon, and I am very grateful that they did. From my initial exam to post surgery Dr. Solomon and his staff have been exceptional. I had some eye prescription stability issues with the initial visit, so I had to where my glasses for a week, once my prescription stabilized, I had the surgery and then had issues with eye pressure. After a few eye visits and some additional eye drops I could not be more pleased with the results being able to see everything so clearly without any contacts or reading glasses."
