On Wednesday evening, March 2, Kiawah-Seabrook Exchange Club members welcomed Kerry Solomon, MD, as their guest speaker at Turtle Point Golf Club. Dr. Solomon, Managing Partner of Carolina Eyecare and Director of Carolina Eyecare Research Center, spoke on new and innovative equipment and procedures for Cataract, Refractive Cataract and Lasik Surgery.
In 2011, Dr. Solomon with his wife, Cindi, Dr. John Boatwright and Dr. Paul Herring founded Operation Sight with the goal of serving South Carolina residents who were in danger of losing their vision to cataracts but could not afford surgery. Operation Sight is the only non-profit organization to provide free cataract surgery to those in need, ages 18 to 62. To date, over 159 successful cataract surgeries have been completed by more than 20 volunteer physicians.
Together, Dr. Solomon and his wife have established the “Vision is Art” Program. 20% of the proceeds of the sales of artwork by local artists on display at Carolina Eyecare Physicians’ Office located at 110 Clarity Rd. in Mt. Pleasant is donated to the care of Operation Sight participants.
