At North Shore Eye Care, here in our Smithtown, Long island, we perform the most advanced cataract surgery available. Cataract surgery has come a long way in the last thirty years. Through the use of conscious sedation, an incision under three millimeters is made in the cornea and the cataract is removed using high speed ultrasound (phacoemulsification). The entire procedure usually lasts about ten minutes. In our practice, needle injections around the eye are rare used and hence we do not routinely use sutures or patches. This gives our patients who are on anticoagulation (Coumadin, Plavix, Aspirin)the ability to continue there medicine prior to and after surgery. Our patients usually have quick recovery and are able to see right away.
We are happy to offer the latest in intraocular lenses in cataract surgery. Dr. Lawrence Zweibel, Dr. Jeffrey Martin and Dr. John Mauro use premium intraocular lenses such as: Crystalens, Acrysof Toric, Restor and Technis. Therefore we can not only correct far and near vision but astigmatism as well. Many patients do not use glasses at all. Things have changed since Dr Sidney Martin first opened our office over forty years ago. This is 2010, options to patients in our field have never been better. If you have been told you need cataract surgery, feel free to call for a consultation.
