Biography

Coleman received his undergraduate degree from Union College and his medical degree from the University of Buffalo School of Medicine. Following his internship at the Columbia Medical Division at Bellevue Hospital, he served in the U.S. Public Health Service in Washington, DC. Coleman completed his residency in Ophthalmology at the Edward S. Harkness Eye Institute of Columbia Presbyterian as a National Institutes of Health Special Fellow.

Coleman remained on staff at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center until 1979, when he was appointed Chief of the Ophthalmology Department at The New York Hospital and John Milton McLean Professor of Ophthalmology at Cornell University Medical College. He served as President of the Medical Board from 1991-1992, and 1994-1997. Coleman has served as Surgeon Director of Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital, Senior Research Physician at Riverside Research Institute in New York City and consultant at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

Coleman’s strong interest in physics has led him to be at the forefront in developing new ultrasound technologies for examining and treating the eye.[1] Together with Frederic L. Lizzi, EngScD, he created the first commercially available B-scan ultrasound equipment.[2] [3] His numerous patents include those for an ultrasonically vibrated surgical knife and ultrasonic diagnostic and therapeutic transducer assembly and method of use, a system of therapeutic ultrasound and real-time ultrasonic scanning [4], and an ultrasound system for corneal biometry. [5]

Dr Coleman has been an officer of every major ultrasound medical society throughout the world, including the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, the Societas Internationalis de Diagnostic Ultrasonica in Ophthalmologia and the World Federation for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology, Inc. He is past President of the American Retina Society and Past President of Club Jules Gonin, the International Retina Society. Coleman has authored over 200 peer-reviewed papers and numerous chapters in ophthalmology textbooks and has recently published the second edition of his seminal text, Ultrasonography of the Eye and Orbit. He has specialized in vitreo-retinal surgery and has had a career long interest in imaging research.

Coleman’s pioneering surgical techniques include the first vitreoretinal surgery in New York and, using the ultrasound that he developed, demonstrated that operating at an earlier stage in ocular trauma could vastly improve the patient’s prognosis for recovery.[6] For his research he has received many prestigious awards including the Mildred Weisenfeld Award for Excellence in Ophthalmology from the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, the Herman Wacker Award of Club Jules Gonin, the Award of Merit in Retinal Research from the Retina Society and an honorary degree from the University of Ferrara in Ferrara, Italy. Additionally, Coleman was the 2001 recipient of the Greenberg Award of New York-Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Medical College of Cornell University.

With a generous gift from Charles and Margaret Dyson, Coleman established the Margaret M. Dyson Vision Research Institute, one of the major retinal research programs in the world. The Dyson Institute continues research on the causes and possible therapies for age related macular degeneration and ultrasound imaging of the retina and choroid.
