How do you see the world around you? Many of us take good vision for granted, but, if your vision is less than perfect, there is a man who may be able to help you see the world more clearly.
His patients may think it is pure magic, but Dr. Kerry Solomon is renowned here in Mount Pleasant and around the world for his groundbreaking techniques in the fields of cataract and refractive surgery. He began performing cataract procedures in 1990 and quickly became a leader, learning new technologies and leading the way to more advanced methods of vision correction. In 1996, Dr. Solomon was the first physician in South Carolina to perform LASIK procedures. Many patients suffering from myopia and astigmatism were finally able to toss their glasses and contact lenses aside.
Some doctors would have been satisfied, but Dr. Solomon has continued to push the envelope, ever working on newer and more precise techniques. Everyone, from the physicians to the support staff, brings their expertise and talent together to provide good outcomes coupled with the highest standard of customer service.
“I am part of Carolina Eyecare Physicians, and we have 16 to 18 providers and about 160 people on staff,” Dr. Solomon said. “We’re the largest group in the area, possibly in South Carolina.”
Dr. Solomon clearly enjoys his life’s profession and the joy it brings to thousands of patients who experience the thrill of crystal clear vision, possibly for the first time. He By BarBara Millen Patrick Medical www.MountPleasantPhysicians.com | www.CharlestonPhysicians.com | www.SummervillePhysicians.com has always been attracted to technology and the potential it represents.
“Vision is very precious. I’m interested the development of different technologies,” he said. “Now, when we perform cataract surgery, we can also correct near-sightedness and astigmatism at the same time.”
Dr. Solomon understands that customer service is just as important as technology.
“We’ve worked very hard and held focus groups. We are very organized. Our average waiting time is about 15 minutes,” he said, adding that their satisfaction scores exceed 99 percent.
Because every person – indeed, every eye – is different, Dr. Solomon develops a customized plan for each patient in order to provide the best results possible.
“Our outcomes are superb,” he said.
In addition to cataract and LASIK surgeries, Dr. Solomon treats dry eye syndrome, glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. He continues research in these areas in order to develop new therapies. His list of recognitions and media exposure is extensive. But he sees each person as an individual and takes the time to make them feel that theirs is the most important appointment of the day.
“It all revolves around excellent customer service,” Dr. Solomon said. He’s pretty clear on that.
