I recently flew to South Carolina from Illinois and had my brother (Dr. Kerry Solomon) remove cataracts from both eyes and implant premier lenses. What an amazing experience-from the initial consult and testing to the two back to back days of surgery. There is no pain and no recovery. I no longer wear contacts (did for 30 years) and my distance vision is spectacular. I wish I was an artist as I can see all branches, leaves, and all details of far away trees. I feel much more confident driving! This is a big change. I have also noticed that colors are much more vibrant-blues are bluer, whites are whiter, etc! I highly recommend Dr. Kerry Solomon and ALL his staff. What a terrific and forever change in my vision! He truly Is the best!

Initial consult in March with surgery scheduled for 6/13/22. Advised over 1week ago that surgery could not be done due to a hx of laryngeal spasm with propofol . Requested numerous call backs from anesthesiologist/ surgery center as well Dr Howard’s scheduler to discuss options . After multiple calls and requests over a period of 1 week I have finally given up. Having a 35 year career in medical practice management I’m disappointed that I was not even given the courtesy of a call back . My surgery is now delayed as I seek another provider . This is certainly poor form on multiple levels .

I have been seeing Dr. Folgar for several years. First visit was to evaluate macular pucker in one eye. He explained the surgery which could be done, and told me to wait until I was ready to have it. I went along for a few years with yearly visits, and there was never any pressure to get the surgery done. Now I find myself covering up that eye to see better, so I'm calling and making the appointment for surgery. I appreciate his "no pressure" demeanor.

Cataract surgery went amiss. No one cared or explained. This a conveyor belt with no human consideration.

Every aspect of my visits were great. The whole office from the front desk to the operating area to recovery and after care visits were professional, friendly and very efficient. Everyone made me feel at ease. I can’t say enough about the expertise of Dr. Howard’s work. I am extremely happy with the outcome of my surgery and would highly recommend Dr Howard to family, friends and anyone needed his surgical expertise. Thank you Dr. Howard !! Ms. Ann Hogue 2-1-2022

Dr. Howard provided a thorough explanation for a procedure that some might consider rather scary. He performed it in minutes in his office providing me instant relief and I didn't feel a thing. He is a very conscientious and caring doctor. I would highly recommend him.

Not sure about Dr. Howard's skills as a surgeon, but his office staff dropped the ball during the insurance approval process. In the past 30 days, I have made four attempts to get anyone from that office to return my calls without success. Twice I was told that Dr. Howard would be calling me himself. My referring Ophthalmologist, at the Socastee Eye Clinic in Myrtle Beach, has made two attempts to get a return call on my status with no response. I am surprised at the treatment I received from a business with this many good reviews.

Dr Howard and staff are excellent. I knew what to expect before during and after my Eye lid surgery. Follow up visit was so smooth. Thank you Dr Howard and Melissa for a great experience.

Get a second opinion before scheduling cataract surgery. I was only given 2 choices of new lenses, the one Medicare pays for or the most expensive ones. Was told only the latter would make me glasses free. After paying $7200, and taking 4 vacation days from work, 6 procedures and 5 other office visits, I got a RX for glasses on my last follow up appointment. Friends and family have had cataract surgery with other eye doctors and had much better results and paid half what I did. Save your money.

Dr. Howard was the most considerate physician my husband and I have ever dealt with. He took time before my husband's eye surgery to discuss the potential positive and negative outcomes and was very open to questions. His surgical staff was very helpful and caring!

I would highly recommend Dr. Howard for his expertise, his caring attitude, and for successful results. He has a wonderful team around him which makes for a very pleasant experience in the office as well during the procedure. Dr. Howard has performed two procedures for me over - first was a lower blepharoplasty 7 years ago, and second procedure was all-over facial laser resurface this year. Both procedures were performed at the Physicians Eye Surgery Center in Charleston. The combination of location, Dr. Howard, and his extraordinary team made my results and my experience extremely successful.

I had an incredible experience with Dr. Solomon and his team. From the first meeting, I felt like I was in good hands. They really helped me set aside any anxieties about the procedure (I was definitely concerned because of the rumors that go around about it). But they answered all of my questions, walked me through the procedure, and helped me understand that my main focus was to do what I needed to heal. I was able to see very clearly immediately and I couldn’t believe how quickly it happened. 1 week later and I can't believe I didn't do this sooner. I recommend Dr. Solomon to anyone considering LASIK or vision correction surgery!

Sagging eyelids caused loss of peripheral vision. My ophthalmologist recommended I have my eyelids done before I attempted to renew my driver’s license. I was apprehensive to have this procedure done; I asked numerous medical professionals for recommendations. Every medical professional gave me the same name – Dr. Gene Howard. I had the procedure done two weeks ago and cannot believe the difference. I wish I had this done years ago. I cannot say enough about Dr. Gene Howard and his medical staff: personable, professional, extremely efficient and will answer every question you have. I am absolutely thrilled with the results and the rapport with Dr. Howard and his highly qualified staff.

I had cataracts in both eyes. Dr Solomon and his staff were very professional and friendly. I was made comfortable from the first appointment through surgery and post op visits. Excellent results! Would highly recommend.
