Meet The Doctors

Suleiman Alibhai O.D, F.A.A.O.

Suleiman Alibhai O.D. received his training in optometry at the University of Houston College of Optometry. He then went on to complete a low vision fellowship at the Lions Low Vision Research and Rehabilitation Center at Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute in 1992. After being part of a large retina practice in the Metropolitan Washington DC area for 12 years seeing patients exclusively for low vision rehabilitation, he went on to develop a Low Vision Center as part of the INOVA health system in Northern Virginia, where he served as the Director of Low Vision Services for 3 years. For the past 9 years, he has also contracted with the National Eye Institute at NIH to provide low vision consultations to patients participating in different protocols at the Institute. Dr. Alibhai has now formed an independent low vision company which sees patients with low vision in Bethesda, MD and Alexandria,VA. His particular interests are patients with macular degeneration and issues pertaining to driving with low vision.

Adriana Wiseman, O.D.

Dr. Wiseman has practiced in the Washington DC area for many years. Her extensive clinical experience in general optometry and low vision rehab includes an independent practice in Silver Spring MD as well as a part time position at GWU Medical Faculty Associates.

After receiving a degree in Life Sciences from University of Maryland, College Park, Dr. Wiseman worked in biotechnology at the National Cancer Institute of NIH and a private biotech lab in Rockville, MD. Curious about eyes, optics and vision, she changed paths to attend Pennsylvania College of Optometry (now Salus University), receiving a doctorate degree with clinical honors. She is a member of the American Optometric Association, the Maryland Optometric Association and the District of Columbia Optometric Society. She is fully bilingual in Spanish and has a basic ability in French.

Dr. Wiseman believes Low Vision Rehabilitation is a very important part of complete and integrated eye care for patients who have vision impairments of all types and needs. It is her privilege to provide Low Vision Rehabilitation and witness the benefits it brings to patients, families and caretakers.

Belinda Weinberg, O.D.

Dr. Weinberg, a Baltimore native, received her Bachelors degree in Biology from the University of Rochester. She completed her optometric training at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University. Her clinical rotations involved training in primary care optometry, ocular disease, anterior segment surgical co-management, specialty contact lenses, and low vision rehabilitation. She went on to complete a residency in low vision rehabilitation, acquired brain injury rehabilitation, and ocular disease at the Veterans Affairs Connecticut Healthcare System in West Haven, Connecticut.
