As one of the top LASIK surgeons in the country, Dr. Solomon frequently sees patients who have traveled long distances to visit him in Charleston, SC. It’s no surprise that the summer months are a popular time for travel, including travel for vision correction. In fact, in the span of just two weeks this summer, Dr. Solomon performed LASIK on four patients from out of state.
Each of these patients has a unique story of how they made the choice to travel for LASIK with Dr. Solomon. Linda and Aimee, a mother and daughter from Kansas, were referred by Aimee’s sister, who lives in Charleston and recently had her own procedure with Dr. Solomon. Katie, a recent high school grad about to begin a college softball career, found out about Dr. Solomon from her uncle, who works for Carolina Eyecare. And Sarah, a Charleston native now living in Chicago, traveled back to the Lowcountry to celebrate her Master’s Degree in School Counseling. These four women chose LASIK at different times in their lives and for different reasons, but they all agree that it was well worth the trip to have LASIK performed by a surgeon they knew they could trust.
Of course, there are some added bonuses to travelling to Charleston for LASIK. After all, Charleston has just been named Travel + Leisure’s Top City in the US for the fifth year in a row! (The icing on the cake? Charleston was also the only US city to make the Top 10 Cities in the World, coming in at number two.) There’s no better way to celebrate your new, clear vision after LASIK than by taking in some of the beautiful nature, history, and art that only Charleston can offer. Maybe you’ll even want to stroll through our historic King Street shopping district to find the perfect pair of non-prescription sunglasses. And of course, whether it’s seafood, BBQ, or something more exotic, no visit to Charleston is complete without the food. Not sure where to start? Just ask! Dr. Solomon’s staff are always happy to share a local recommendation.
Whatever your vacation style, Charleston is the place to be for LASIK with a top surgeon and a great getaway.
(p.s. Not sure where to stay? Dr. Solomon even partners with a local hotel to provide a discounted rate for his out-of-town patients!)
