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.

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.
