What is premium cataract surgery? At North Shore eye care in smithtown new york on long island, premium cataract surgery means premium cataract surgery with a lifestyle or premium intraocular lens to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. Our board certified cataract experts perform cataract surgery through a microscopic incision that requires no needles around the eyes and no stitches. Our patients are able to stay in their own clothes and receive IV sedation for comfort. Our patients lay down comfortably and see a bright light and thats it. After a few minutes, the cloudy or defective natural lens of the eye is removed and an intraocular implant is used to replace it. The standard implant choices result in a continued need for glasses for near and sometimes far as well. For many people, this option is reasonable and what they want. For those patients that wish to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses, there are several choices such as multifocal lenses like Restor and Tecnis Multifocal and the accommodating Crystalens. We also use the toric to reduce or eliminate astigmatism. These lifestyle implants are amazing and have helped many patients avoid glasses for far and near following cataract surgery. North Shore eye care is a national Crystalens Center of Excellence and Dr. Martin and Dr. Zweibel have been named Top Doctors in the New york Metro Area for years. There is an added cost for the lifestyle IOL technology, but we offer zero percent financing for two years to help our patients that desire this improved technology.
