Welcome to the Practice of Dr. Kerry Solomon
Dr. Kerry Solomon and his entire staff believe that everyone deserves the precious gift of clear, crisp vision and the quality of life that accompanies it. By offering a range of advanced vision correction procedures, including LASIK and laser cataract surgery, Dr. Solomon can correct a variety of vision problems and restore optimal vision to patients from Charleston, SC, and beyond. Patients travel to us from all over, seeking Dr. Solomon’s expertise in treating conditions such as refractive errors, presbyopia and cataracts.
One of the world’s best ophthalmologists, Dr. Solomon is committed to investing in top-quality technology to enhance the safety and precision of vision correction treatment. Every procedure is carefully customized to the unique needs of the individual patient. Because of his commitment to leading-edge technology and his reputation as a leading researcher in the field, Dr. Solomon is often among the first ophthalmologists to offer new technologies. He performed the first LASIK procedure in South Carolina, and he was the first in the country to offer topography-guided LASIK (a.k.a., topo-guided LASIK or Contour LASIK), which maps the cornea prior to surgery, enabling the eye surgeon to provide better visual acuity than ever before. And, Dr. Solomon was among the first ophthalmologists in the country to use the LenSx laser system and ORA technology for cataract surgery, both of which help patients achieve superior results.

LASIK at a Glance
LASIK is one of the country’s most popular vision correction treatments, designed to fix nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. It is safe, quick and virtually painless for the patient, with rapid, life-changing results.
Top-rated ophthalmologist specialist Dr. Kerry Solomon uses advanced technology to enhance the precision and visual outcomes of LASIK. Every patient’s optical system and corneal topography are carefully mapped out so the South Carolina surgeon can note the minute imperfections and then calibrate the laser accordingly.
During surgery, a precise laser is used to reshape the cornea so that light entering the eye can properly focus on the retina. While individual results vary, many patients notice an immediate improvement in their vision after surgery, and most are experiencing significantly better vision by the day after surgery.
Cataract Surgery at a Glance
Cataracts are a normal part of the aging process. Over time, the naturally clear lens of the eye becomes cloudy, impairing vision; this is known as a cataract. Nearly everyone develops cataracts if they live long enough.
Cataract surgery is the most common surgical procedure in the country. During the brief outpatient procedure, Dr. Solomon removes the clouded cataract lens and implants an artificial lens to restore clear vision.
Many cataract surgery patients have a choice in their artificial lens. Some opt for standard monofocal lenses, which restore vision at a single fixed distance; others select multifocal or accommodating lenses to see clearly at various ranges. Toric lenses are also available for patients with pre-existing astigmatism. These advanced lens options can help patients decrease their dependence on glasses and contacts for distance vision, near vision or both.
