Biography

After completing his undergraduate studies at LaSalle University, Dr. Mark S. Trachtman received his medical degree from Temple University. He then interned in the Department of Internal Medicine at Philadelphia’s Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, and completed a pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus fellowship at the Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Atlanta.

Dr. Trachtman had practiced with Lehigh Valley Eye Center for nearly two decades when it was acquired by OCLI. His training in medical and surgical treatment of eye muscle disorders, such as crossed eyes and double vision, aids in the treatment of both children and adults. Dr. Trachtman often draws on this expertise when performing eye exams on premature infants for the neonatal nursery at Lehigh Valley Hospital.

The doctor’s published manuscripts include: “Molluscum Contaigiosum Eyelid Lesions as the Initial Manifestation of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome” for the American Journal of Ophthalmology, with A.B. Leakey, J.J. Shane, and A. Listhaus; “Optic Neuropathy and Central Nervous System Disease Secondary to Sjogren’s Syndrome in a Child” for Ophthalmology, with J.L. Bergman, R.M. Burde, and S. Kashii; “When Do Optic Disc Edema and Peripheral Neuropathy Constitute Poetry?” for Clinical Challenges, Survey of Ophthalmology, with S. Kashii and R..M. Burde; “Plasma Steroids in the Ammocoete of Petromyzon Marinus” for General and Comparative Endocrinology, with L. Dashow, Y. Katz, and A. Epple; and “Effects of Exogenous Somatostatin and Antisomatostatin on Serum Parameters of the American Eel” for Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology, with A. Epple and B. Nibbio.
