Everyone knows someone that has had successful cataract surgery. The eye doctors and eye surgeons at North Shore eye care in smithtown new york see many patients each day that require cataract surgery. A cataract is a natural aging of the lens of the eye that causes the lens to cloud up and cause blurred vision and glare. Many of our Long Island patients complain of glare with oncoming headlights while driving at night and glare with sunlight. Things that used to be easy to see become difficult like reading a book or seeing traffic signs. When these symptoms become significant enough to cause a compromise in quality of life, the cataract surgeons and eye surgeons in our Long Island New York eye care practice suggest cataract surgery.
Cataract surgery is performed by our board certified cataract surgeons, Dr. Jeffrey Martin, Dr. Larry Zweibel and Dr. John Mauro. We perform cataract surgery through microscopic incisions using eye drops for anesthesia which allows us to avoid needles around the eyes. We do not use eye patches or stitches during cataract surgery and our average cataract surgery takes a few minutes and is relatively painless. We have worked hard to develop a cataract treatment that is so easy for our patients to go through. Dr. Martin and Dr. Zweibel have been voted Top Doctors: New York Metro Area by Castle Connolly ltd and North Shore Eye Care has been deemed a Crystalens National Cataract Surgery Center of Excellence by Bausch and Lomb. It is important that your cataract surgeon have vast experience and use the best in techniques and technology. In our Smithtown New York eye care practice, we use the best in intraocular implant technology including Crystalens, Restor, Rezoom, Tecnis Multifocal, and Acrysof Toric.
