New York City, New York Apr 3, 2023 (Issuewire.com) – A seasoned ophthalmologist, Dr. Singerman founded Retina Associates of Cleveland, the largest retina group practice in Ohio. Known for his compassion and dedication to helping each and every patient that walks into his offices, he diagnoses retinal problems and macular degeneration, and performs eye examinations.
His areas of expertise include retinal, vitreous, and macular diseases; age-related macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; and retinal vascular occlusive diseases.
Among his academic appointments, Dr. Singerman is a Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, and at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute of the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine.
Among his prior endeavors, he was president of the Ohio and Cleveland Ophthalmological Societies & vice-chair of the Council of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
Back in the early days of his academic career, Dr. Singerman graduated with his medical degree from the Wayne State University School of Medicine in 1969. He then sought and obtained a retinal fellowship at the Wilmer Eye Institute of Johns Hopkins under the guidance of Dr. Arnall J. Patz, a renowned pioneer in the field of retinal diseases who was a leading participant in a randomized, controlled clinical trial.
After finishing his fellowship and beginning private practice, Dr. Singerman maintained his commitment to clinical trials. Recognizing the need for an organized venue focused on research in retinal medicine, he founded the Macula Society in 1977, an international association of leading investigators and clinicians in the field of retinal diseases, and has been continuously re-elected as the Society’s Executive Secretary.
Achieving excellence, Dr. Singerman is the recipient of the Macula Society’s Arnall Patz Medal and J. Donald M. Gass Medal and the first recipient of the Lawrence J. Singerman Medal for Outstanding Contributions in Clinical Trials. He is also a Charter Inductee of the Retina Hall of Fame.
A Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS), he is board-certified in ophthalmology by the American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO). The ABO is an independent, non-profit organization responsible for certifying ophthalmologists in the United States of America.
The doctor’s research interests include medical therapies predominantly for wet and dry macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal vein occlusion.
Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. Ophthalmologists are experts in the diseases, functions, and anatomy of the eye. They may provide routine care such as vision testing, as well as prescribe and fit eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, ophthalmologists are also surgeons. They repair traumatic injuries to the eye and perform cataract, glaucoma, retinal, and corneal surgery.
Throughout his extensive career, Dr. Singerman has been a principal investigator in more than 150 multicenter clinical research trials. He has also given more than 600 presentations at national and international courses and symposia on macular and retinal vascular disease, and has authored over 400 publications.
Every year since 1998, Dr. Singerman has been named to the Best Doctors in America list, and has been featured annually in Cleveland Magazine as a Top Doctor by Castle Connolly, Ltd. He has also received Lifetime Achievement Awards from the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the Diabetes Partnership of Cleveland.
Happily married, he and his wife, Margaret, have two grown children and three grandchildren.
