LEADERS IN TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES
Max Greenman, sildenafil viagra M.D. was the first ophthalmologist in the Charlotte area to perform radial keratotomy (RK) refractive surgery and one of the first ophthalmologists in this area to perform LASIK surgery. Dr. Max Greenman was the first ophthalmologist in the Charlotte area to perform an intraocular lens implant and use laser surgery for glaucoma.
David Greenman, M.D. is a fellowship trained retina surgeon who was invited to perform research at the NIH (NEI). He will continue this research at Greenman Eye Associates, applying all the latest technologies in the treatment of macula degeneration and retinal diseases of the eye.
Herb Greenman, M.D. recently performed the first Verisyse lens implant in the Charlotte area. In this procedure, patients who are not candidates for LASIK surgery because they are too near-sighted are able to have a lens implanted behind the iris in their eye, resulting in vision of 20/20 or better.
Herb Greenman, M.D. was one of the first ophthalmologists in the Charlotte area to perform ReSTOR lens implant surgery. The ReSTOR lens is a multi-focal lens that allows the patient to read and see at a distance, resulting in vision very close to that of the natural eye. This surgery is a very good choice for cataract patients and some Lasik surgery candidates who are presbyopic and will require reading glasses. The ReSTOR lens can help most of these patients see completely free of glasses.
Herb Greenman, M.D. is a fellowship trained Lasik surgeon. He has performed more than 1000 Lasik surgeries with Eric Donnenfeld, M.D., one of the most renowned Lasik surgeons in the country. Lasik surgery involves reshaping of the cornea of the eye with a laser so that patients can see at a distance without glasses (see video—7.5 mb).
Dr. Herb Greenman uses the most advanced technology including the LenSx Femtosecond Laser to perform bladeless cataract surgery in pre-qualified patients. The laser creates incisions and softens the cataract making the surgery more precise and often leads to faster visual recovery. In pre-qualified glaucoma patients, find micro invasive glaucoma surgery can be performed at the time of cataract surgery. Some of these procedures include the Istent, viagra Kahook Dual Blade Goniotomy, and laser endocyclophotocoagulation.
Cataracts develop over time especially in individuals over the age of 40. A cataract is formed when the normally clear lens of the eye becomes cloudy, making the vision blurry and requiring more light to see. It is important to have an eye exam if you notice that your vision is diminished. Cataract surgery is performed in an outpatient setting and the patient returns home several hours after the surgery. Most patients can function normally the day of surgery and regain their youthful vision.
Dr. Herb Greenman, our cataract surgeon, has performed cataract surgery on thousands of patients and is one of the leading cataract surgeons in the Charlotte area. Please call our office and make an appointment with Dr. Herb Greenman to find out if your vision has decreased due to cataracts and join the thousands of other patients who have regained the vision of their youth after cataract surgery with Dr. Herb Greenman.
Herb Greenman, M. D. received the Duke University Eye Center Award for Ocular Innovation and Research. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Ophthalmology, and a member of the American Medical Association, American Academy of Ophthalmology, American Association of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons, and Association of Research in Vision Organization.
