We show that, in (2+1)-D case, both bright and dark solitons can exist in optical Kerr media when the optical beams are cylindrically symmetric and almost circularly polarized. We characterize the dependence of the properties associated with these solitons, such as their spatial width and intensity profiles, on their normalized intensity and the non-paraxial degree.
