State of the art cataract surgery is now available in Smithtown, Long Island. Using state of the art phacoemulsifiers cataracts can be dissasembled and removed from the eye with microincisions performed through a microscope that allow patients to resume normal activities the next day without the need for sutures or patching. Using ultrasound energy using a titanium tip that moves faster than 30,000 cycles per second the cataract is quickly removed from the eye. Through the same incision a new lens is inserted replacing the unwanted cataract. These lenses come in a variety of forms enabling patients to see without spectacles in most cases.
