A cataract is a natural clouding or yellowing of the lens inside your eye. Cataract surgery, the cataract or cloudy lens of the eye is removed through a small incision using ultrasound technology called phacoemulsification. The cloudy lens is replaced with an intraocular lens implant or IOL. The eye doctors at North Shore Eye Care also use premium lens implants such as: crystalens, tecnis multifocal, the restor. All of these premium lenses give patients better far and near vision without the use of glasses and contact lenses. We also use the Acrysof Toric implant to reduce or eliminate astigmatism. All of our doctors enjoy using these improved implants because it allows our patients more freedom and range of their vision.
All of our physicians (Drs Sidney Martin, Larry Zweibel, Jeff Martin and John Mauro) at North Shore Eye Care are board certified from the American Board of Ophthalmology. We serve patients throughout Long Island, including Riverhead to the middle of the Island including Stony Brook, Smithtown, Huntington, Babylon, Melville, Cold Spring Harbor, Port Washington, Manhasset, Merrick, Wantagh, Hewett, Long Beach and still further west into New York City including the five boroughs.
