Prior to that Dr. Solomon was at the MUSC as a faculty surgeon fifteen years ago, following his completion of his fellowship at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.

In addition, Dr. Solomon has completed a fellowship in ophthalmic pathology at the University of Utah Health Sciences Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, and completed both his doctorate in medicine and bachelor degree at the University of Vermont in Burlington, Vermont.

In addition to his local clinical practice and administrative duties, Dr. Solomon is active in multiple ophthalmic organizations. He is certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology, holds memberships in a number of professional and scientific societies and is actively involved on a national and international basis with many prominent societies. He is a fellow with the American Academy of Ophthalmology where he serves on several committees and also received an honor award for his achievements.

Additionally, Dr Solomon is involved with the South Carolina Medical Association, Charleston Ophthalmological Society, South Carolina Society of Ophthalmology and the Charleston County Medical Society.

Over his approximately 20 years of practicing medicine, Dr. Solomon has achieved status among the country’s best ophthalmic surgeons, and has received dozens of awards, including the Lee Nordan Refractive Surgeon of the Year Award, an award given to the surgeon who has had the greatest impact in the field, by Cataract and Refractive Surgery Today. He has been ranked as one of ‘America’s Best Doctors’ annually for cataract and refractive surgery since 2004. He has also been voted in the Top Fifty Opinion Leaders in Ophthalmology in the world by his peers since 2005, the inception of this award. He routinely speaks at both national and international meetings and hospitals and to date has presented more than 500 lectures and live surgical demonstrations worldwide.
