Biography - David E. Silverstone, MD

David Silverstone, MD, a board-certified ophthalmologist, specializes in cataract surgery, glaucoma and general ophthalmology.

“I think of myself as a geriatric ophthalmologist—I see a lot of patients with glaucoma, which is prevalent in that age group,” he says.

Dr. Silverstone has been the assistant chief of ophthalmology at Yale-New Haven Hospital since 1988. He has also served as the chief of ophthalmology at the Veteran Affairs Connecticut Healthcare System in West Haven, Conn.

A clinical professor of ophthalmology for Yale School of Medicine, his research interests include the medical treatment of glaucoma and the role of anti-inflammatory medications in post-surgical patient management. He has also worked on the development of visual-field testing devices for glaucoma and is the co-author of a book on visual-field testing.  He is a fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, which has awarded him its Senior Honor Award, has served on its Medical Information Technology Committee, and is currently a member of the Academy’s IRIS Disease Registry Operations Task Force.
