Ophthalmology Management’s 40 Under 40 Recognizes SightMD Doctors
SightMD is very excited to announce Alana Nattis, DO, and Eric Rosenberg, DO, as the two winners who are proudly recognized on Ophthalmology Management’s 40 Under 40
“Ophthalmology Management” announced the winners of its inaugural “40 Under 40” list. This is a list that represents 40 ophthalmologists under the age of 40 who have achieved excellence in their fields. SightMD is proud to announce that two of their physicians are among these standouts. Based on the nominations, SightMD is very excited to announce Alana Nattis, DO, and Eric Rosenberg, DO, as the two winners who are proudly recognized as part of the next generation of ophthalmologists. Candidates from all around the world in every specialty – including the United States, India, Europe, ranging from oculoplastics to retina and cornea – were all included on the list.
Dr. Nattis is a cornea, cataract and refractive surgeon, as well as director of clinical research at SightMD. Additionally, she is an associate professor in ophthalmology and surgery at NYIT-College of Osteopathic Medicine, and also serves as director of corneal transplantation at Good Samaritan Hospital. Dr. Nattis has published more than 15 articles in peer-reviewed journals, written three textbook chapters, and has co-authored a landmark ophthalmology textbook (now in its second edition) which is designed to help guide and teach surgical techniques to residents and fellows. When asked about her secret to success, Dr. Nattis said: “Seek out and surround yourself with a solid support network. Innovation and motivation are keys in the foundation for success, but without those whom you can lean on and encourage you to keep pushing forward, it can be difficult to pass the finish line.” Dr. Nattis continues to be involved in clinical research and regularly makes presentations at national meetings. Her awards include “Super Doctors Rising Stars” (for two years in a row), a “Best in Session” designation from ASCRS, “Ophthalmic World Leader Rising Star” and “Phi Beta Kappa.”
Dr. Rosenberg specializes in complex anterior segment and cornea surgery at SightMD in Babylon, NY. He has been selected to lead panels at major national meetings, has won several “Best Paper” awards at ASCRS, and also heads ground-breaking clinical trials. Dr. Rosenberg is actively involved in teaching residents at both Northwell and New York Medical College, and is the founder of the Digital Ophthalmic Society, which leads the way in how digitization will shape ophthalmology in the future. He has published more than 25 articles, five book chapters, and “Operative Dictations in Ophthalmology”, a textbook used throughout the world. He is passionate about education and the meshing of technology, engineering, and medicine. Dr. Rosenberg was selected as a “Rising Star Super Doctor” by The New York Times in 2021 and 2022.

The “Ophthalmology Management” selection committee voted on the nominees and whittled the list down to a final 40.
