Max Talmey (1869–1941) was a Polish ophthalmologist best known for mentoring Albert Einstein and his success in treating cataracts.

Born into a poor Jewish family, Talmey first met Albert Einstein when Einstein was ten years old. Talmey was then attending Medical School in Germany. Talmey was a weekly lunch guest of Einstein's family. He gave Albert Einstein a number of books about science, including works by Aaron Bernstein.

Talmey published an account of Einstein's early life, "Personal Recollections of Einstein's Boyhood and Youth", in Scripta Mathematica. He also published an account of the Einstein's Theory of Relativity.

Talmey moved to Mount Sinai Hospital in 1895 where he served as an Ophthalmologist. He published scholarly works on cataracts and infant paralysis.

In addition to his medical career, Talmey was a harsh critic of psychoanalysis. He also supported the development of Esperanto, and also constructed his own languages, which he called AIL, Arulo and Gloro, which can be regarded as offspring of Esperanto. He performed public readings of works translated into Gloro, which had similarities to Latin and Spanish. He died in 1941.
