Dr. Singerman, the first recipient of The Macula Society Lawrence J. Singerman Medal
At the commemorative 40th anniversary meeting of the Macula Society in Singapore in June, 2017, Dr. Lawrence Singerman of Retina Associates of Cleveland was honored with a once-in-a-lifetime award bearing his name. The Macula Society Lawrence J. Singerman Medal will be awarded each year by the Society’s Awards Committee to an outstanding individual chosen for exceptional contributions to retinal clinical trials, which have been Dr. Singerman's passion for 40 years.
Dr. Singerman founded the Macula Society in 1977 and has continued to energetically and selflessly serve as executive secretary for the past 40 years. His commitment over the years to clinical trials to find new treatments and prevent vision loss from retinal diseases prompted the Macula Society membership to honor Dr. Singerman as the first recipient of the Medal now given in his name.
