That includes access to the area’s only surgical glaucoma specialist. In fact, we perform more surgeries than any other provider in the region, with specialties including:

  • Cataract surgery
  • Cornea/refractive surgery
  • Corneal transplant surgery
  • Cosmetic ophthalmology
  • Eye muscle surgery
  • Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)
  • Glaucoma surgery
  • Laser eye surgery (LASIK)
  • Neuro-ophthalmology
  • The Tri-County’s only Pediatric Ophthalmology provider


Dr. Mark Silverberg has highly specialized training and a one-of-a-kind touch in caring for our smallest of patients. Dr. Silverberg and his pediatric ophthalmology team help detect and correct childhood eye problems, including misaligned eyes, uneven focus, and other abnormalities. And it’s all done in an environment designed to keep children safe and comfortable.
