Cataract surgery has been a very successful outpatient surgical procedure for many years. The last decade has seen North Shore Eye Care in Smithtown New York on Long Island (LI) as a leader in cataract surgery. Our board certified lasik specialists have a commitment to excellence that is unparalleled. From the moment you walk through the doors of our long island eye care practice, you will feel that you have chosen the correct cataract care group. Our board certified eye surgeons, Dr. Jeffrey Martin, Dr. John Mauro and Dr. Larry Zweibel do their best to give you the best experience.
When a cataract or cloudy lens of the eye becomes significant enough to affect vision adversely, our eye doctors will discuss the possibility of cataract surgery with you. We use a technique here at our long island office that does not require stitches, an eye patch or needles around the eyes. We perform cataract surgery through a small incision using computer controlled ultrasound or phacoemulsfication. After the cloudy lens is removed, we replace that lens with an intraocular lens implant or IOL. This process takes about 10 minutes on average and our patients are able to see and resume normal activities quickly. We specialize in premium implants or implants that allow for far and near vision without glasses or contact lenses. These lenses are either multifocal or accommodating. We have experience with the crystalens, tecnis multifocal, rezoom, and restor. We also use Alcon Toric implants to reduce or eliminate astigmatism.
