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.

"Very professional and friendly staff. I highly recommend Solomon Eye Associates. My recent appointment was pleasant, each procedure was explained in detail and all my questions answered.

A great professional medical office!!"



"In my opinion, Dr. Solomon is the BEST eye doctor for the front of the eye. This good man's son is one of the top ten eye surgeons in the world, and has performed surgeries on both of my eyes. Dr. Schwartz (on Dr. Solomon's staff) saved my eye after a bad injury. I would recommend these excellent doctors without reservation to any and all. Thank you."
