North Shore Eye Care was founded in 1962 by Dr. Sidney Martin, a board certified eye doctor and eye surgeon right here in smithtown new york in long island. The eye care practice took care of patients with glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, dry eyes, diabetes and diabetic retinopathy and later, all forms of laser eye surgery became available. The eye care practice grew and soon Dr. Zweibel and later Dr. Jeff Martin, his son joined the practice. Most recently, Dr. John Mauro joined North Shore eye care the these four board certified ophthalmologists now lead the way in bladeless custom lasik and ilasik. At our long island lasik practice, we do the best in lasik which is ilasik. All of our lasik laser vision correction procedures are blade-free with Intralase. Intralase makes the safest, thinnest and most accurate flaps possible. Then we do Customvue laser vision correction under the flap using automatic centering and tracking for the best result possible. We also use iris registration so that the laser eye surgery is perfectly centered on your unique eye. By using each patient's unique fingerprint of their vision, the results are most consistent and accurate.
When it comes to qualtiy of life issues, lasik has made life much more simple for many people. There are no more glasses or contact lenses in most cases and the risk of contact lens related infection goes away. Patients are able to see the clock when they first wake up and they are able to see the shampoo bottles in the shower. Our long island new york patients tell us every day that the freedom gained from lasik was really life changing.
