clinical trials and technology

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.

As the Chief of Ophthalmology at the University of Maryland, Capital Regional Surgery Center and co-founder of the Bowie Vision Institute for Applied Studies, Dr. Solomon continues to educate and train the next generation of refractive and corneal reconstructive surgeon and a fellowship preceptor for the UMD School of Medicine, Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences.

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

"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."

"All the staff and doctors are very professional, knowledgeable and extremely kind. Dr. Solomon did my cataract surgery in 2009 and they're currently helping me with early stages of glaucoma. My eyes are thankful for this team."

"Had an incredible experience with Dr. Solomon and Solomon Eye Associated in Bowie, MD. From the first visit, they were thoughtful, organized and I felt like my eyes and the outcome were #1 priority. Jazmin went above and beyond to help me, including reaching out to my insurance company when I was standing in the pharmacy with a problem. I can’t say enough about the level of professionalism and care, NOT to mention that my actual procedure was seamless with results better than I expected. You will not regret choosing this team for your lasik surgery. 10/10"

He wanted to know my concerns and he listened well. Answered my questions. Will refer others in my family to this practice."
