WHO: Dr. Kerry Solomon, an internationally recognized leader in iLASIK vision correction, is the managing partner at Carolina Eyecare Physicians and serves as the Director of the Carolina Eyecare Research Institute. He consults for medical device, technology and pharmaceutical companies and is often selected to be the first to conduct clinical trials and present his findings to the medical community.
As a result of Dr. Solomon’s research, consulting work and experience, his patients are often among the first in the world to benefit from next-generation technology.
WHAT: To celebrate National Eye Exam month in August and Save your Sight month in September, Dr. Solomon is presenting a special offer called “Share the Vision: See the Savings.” Patients who donate glasses or a box of unused contact lenses at the time of their procedure can save up to $1,000 on iLASIK (advanced, blade-free custom LASIK).
The donated glasses and contacts will be sent to the Lions Clubs International and MADRE, two global organizations serving those in need.
WHERE: 1101 Clarity Road, Mount Pleasant
WHEN: Through Sept. 30 (Initial consultation with Dr. Solomon’s office must be scheduled by Sept. 30)
WHY: Since laser vision correction was introduced well over a decade ago, there have been steady advancements in its technology. Dr. Solomon is one of the few surgeons in the country to offer the most advanced iFS Intralase laser, known as iLASIK.
As a result, the metal blade has been completely eliminated, offering a premium level of safety and accuracy.
Plus, recovery is minimal. Most routine activities can be performed the day after the procedure.
Dr. Solomon also customizes the iLASIK procedure for each patient by using CustomVue technology and Iris Registration which further improves and enhances the quality of a patient’s laser vision correction treatment.
More than 94 percent of the eligible population is now a potential candidate for iLASIK, including those who have not been candidates in the past for various reasons, including astigmatism. 98 percent of Dr. Solomon’s patients see 20/20 or better following iLASIK.
Imagine waking up in the morning and being able to see your clock clearly versus fumbling around for your glasses. Or traveling for work or pleasure and not worrying about remembering contacts or whether you have enough saline solution.
iLASIK typically costs $2,800 per eye. “Share the Vision: See the Savings” offers tremendous savings of $1,000 or $500 per eye. Give others, who are victims of poverty or domestic abuse, the chance to see the world more clearly. This can help them take care of and provide for themselves and others.
Since 2002, Dr. Solomon has been named one of the”Top 50 Opinion Leaders in the Fields of Cataract and Refractive Surgery,” and one of the”Best Doctors in America” every year. Named one of the top 250 innovators in the field of premium IOL surgery by the publishers and editors of Premier Surgeon, he has also been cited in numerous national publications.
