The board certified cataract surgeons at North Shore eye care in smithtown new york in long island are leaders in the field of cataract surgery. Our eye doctors have been featured in Top Doctors: New York Metro Area by Castle connolly and North Shore eye care has been named a National Crystalens Center of Excellence by Bausch and Lomb. At our eye care practice, cataract surgery is performed through a microscopic incision without the use of stitches, an eye patch or needles around the eyes. After our doctors remove the cloudy or cataract lens from the eye, a new intraocular lens implant or IOL is placed in the eye. This new implant can be of the standard variety providing good distance vision only or can be a premium implant that offers far and near vision. The premium lenses allow for far and near vision without glasses by either moving in the eye or by the use of rings in the implant itself that alternate near and far. In your cataract consultation, our cataract experts will discuss your options and help you decide which implant is best for you. The choices are Crystalens, Restor, Rezoom, and Tecnis Multifocal. We also implant toric implants that correct astigmatism.
