North Shore Eye Care is the leader in LASIK in Long Island with locations in Smithtown, Riverhead, Deer Park and Holbrook. Your complimentary consultation is a phone call away. What does that mean to you? At no charge, you can meet with one of our board certified LASIK experts and discuss your options. Of course, our LASIK eye doctors will have all the information they need including corneal topography and pachymetry, your eyeglass prescription and refraction as well as the appearance of your eye by examination. They are trained to know whether you are a good candidate for LASIK or not. We are the leading LASIK practice in Suffolk County of Long Island so we are equipped to give you an honest and accurate assessment of your ocular system. About 75 % of the patients that we see are good candidates for LASIK. Some patients with thin corneas, irregular corneas, high prescriptions or dry eyes are not good candidates for LASIK, but may still be able to safely and successfully have PRK or advanced surface ablation. With PRK, the custom laser vision correction is performed on the surface of the eye instead of under a flap. In those cases, the final visual result is every bit as good as LASIK, but the healing time is a bit longer. The reason why surface correction is safer in those candidates is because surface correction does not go as deep into the cornea leaving more healthy cornea behind for stability. For those patients that can have LASIK, we only do the best bladeless and custom LASIK. This means that every flap in LASIK is made with blade-free Intralase, the safest and most precise way to make the flap that is about 1/10th of a millimeter in thickness. We then perform the vision correction using Customvue that uses a unique fingerprint of your eye to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. This LASIK procedure automatically tracks and centers and even uses your iris landmarks to precisely line up the vision correction so that every result is the best it can be.
Its Time to Say Yes to LASIK
North Shore Eye Care is celebrating it's 50th year in practice. Dr. Sidney Martin formed our eye care practice in Smithtown New York in 1962 and he still practices part time at 82 years of age. For this historic event, we are having the greatest LASIK promotion in the history of North Shore Eye Care. Patients are able to get the best LASIK at an incredible value and still benefit from zero percent financing for two years. And lets not forget that this is not any LASIK procedure, but it is LASIK by the Official LASIK Providers of the New York Mets and the Official Eye Care Provider of the New York Islanders. We also have Dr. Zweibel and Dr. Jeffrey Martin proud to be named Top Doctors in the New York Metro Area by Castle Connolly as seen in the New York Times, New York Magazine and Newsday. Dr. Jeff Martin and Dr. John Mauro have been chosen as Patient Choice and Compassionate Doctor awards by Vitals.com.
