Alexander M. Solomon, MD
Alexander M. Solomon, MD, is a neuro-ophthalmologist and strabismus surgeon at Pacific Neuroscience Institute in Santa Monica and Torrance, CA. Dr. Solomon’s personal philosophy is that each patient is an individual and that diagnosis and optimal management of any disease is best carried out in conjunction with patient and family education, and understanding.
His skillset includes visual field analysis and optical coherence tomography interpretation, as well as advanced adult strabismus diagnosis and treatment including thyroid eye disease, cranial nerve palsies, and orbital disease.
Born and raised in Las Vegas, NV, Dr. Solomon obtained his undergraduate degree at Harvard University. He moved to Los Angeles after college to pursue research in the neurochemistry of the retina at UCLA for 3 years and subsequently completed medical school at Keck School of Medicine of USC. This was followed by an internship in internal medicine in Long Beach and postgraduate ophthalmology training at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. He elected to pursue fellowship training in neuro-ophthalmology and strabismus surgery at the University of Pennsylvania and Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania. Dr. Solomon has presented on neuro-ophthalmologic disease and management at local and national meetings and is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
In 2022, Dr. Solomon was thrilled to return to his adopted home in the greater Los Angeles area to serve communities in the South Bay and Santa Monica again.
