Bio

Since 1992, Dr. Silverman has performed thousands of refractive surgeries. Utilizing the latest technology, such as the ALLEGRETTO WAVE® laser system for custom LASIK surgery, Dr. Silverman is able to provide superior care tailored to the needs of each patient. Dr. Silverman has been cited as one of The BEST DOCTORS in the New York Metro Area by Castle, Connolly Medical Ltd. each year consecutively from 1997 to 2011. And, since the EyeCare 20/20 is so advanced, it serves as a training facility for other ophthalmologists. Dr. Silverman and EyeCare 20/20 attract people from all over the world. Many doctors do not perform LASIK, yet recommend the surgery to their patients and choose to co-manage with EyeCare 20/20. In these cases, and often for reasons of convenience, patients may choose to have any pre-operative and post-operative visits with their eye care professional. For example, patients from as far as California, Argentina, and Switzerland have come to us for their surgery and have returned to their personal physicians for any necessary follow-up visits.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
