In Smithtown new york in Long Island, North Shore eye care are the leaders in cataract surgery and cataract treatment. Our board certified cataract surgeons and cataract eye doctors, Dr. Sidney Martin, Dr. Larry Zweibel, Dr. Jeffrey martin, and Dr. John Mauro, are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of cataract. A cataract is a clouding of the natural crystalline lens of the eye. When a cataract gets severe enough to interfere with quality of life due to blurred vision, glare with oncoming headlights at night while night driving, glare with sunlight, we consider cataract surgery. Our ocular surgeons do advanced cataract surgery including cataract surgery with no stitches, no eye patch and no needles around the eyes. We use IV sedation to relax our cataract patients and eye drops to numb the ocular surface. Average cataract surgery takes a few minutes and our patients return to the comfort of their home the very same day.
When a cataract is removed, we replace the defective lens with an intraocular implant or IOL. The eye doctors at North Shore eye care in long island specialize in premium implants like the crystalens, restor, rezoom, and tecnis multifocal. These implants are designed to reduce the need for glasses and contact lenses for far and near.
