LEADERS IN TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES
Max Greenman, 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).
