Bio

Dr. Silverstein had eye muscle surgery when he was 5-years-old and his experiences with pediatric ophthalmologist, Dr. Marshall Parks, inspired him to become a pediatric ophthalmologist. Dr. Silverstein is a Virginia Native and a graduate of Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology. He is a member of the Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus, American Academy of Ophthalmology and the Virginia Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons.

Dr. Silverstein is a co-founding member of the University of Pennsylvania Medical Emergency Response Team, a student-run emergency first response team staffed by trained EMTs.

In 2017, Dr. Silverstein developed 9 Gaze, an easy, quick, and efficient way to document eye motility and strabismus in the 9 cardinal positions of gaze. The app is intended for use by ophthalmologists. Download it here.

He was the first Dr who actually looked at the entire picture and didn't blame his condition on a virus. After 2 weeks I finally feel like we are heading in the right direction to try to figure out what's going on.

We are always so happy to see Dr. S. He is clearly very naturally comfortable with children, and does everything in his power to make their visits comfortable and non-threatening/frightening. We appreciate his attention to detail and caring personality!

Love and trust Dr. Silverstein. I would recommend him to anybody experiencing eye issues.
October 2017
Dr. Silverstein is spectacular, he's funny, warm, caring, thoughtful. I have a complicated prescription and he's written me the best prescription I've ever had---my vision is much better than it's ever been, under his care.
