At North Shore Eye Care our surgeons (Dr. Martin, Dr. Zweibel, Dr Dhar and Dr Mauro) perform many cataract surgeries each year, using advanced techniques such as topical anesthesia, no periocular needle injections or eye patches. All of our doctors at North Shore Eye Care are specialized in advanced cataract surgery.
All of our doctors at North Shore Eye Care are specialized in advanced cataract surgery. 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, and the restor multifocal. 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.
Our board certified eye doctors do the very best techniques when it comes to cataract surgery including performing cataract surgery without stitches, eye patches or even a needle injection around the eye. We use numbing eye drops and IV sedation and usually complete the cataract surgery in about 10 minutes. Our patients stay in their own clothes and return home the very same day. Modern, small incision microsurgery is not only much safer, but also offers many options for our patients.Patients can now choose from a large variety of intraocular lenses that are used to replace the cataractous lens of the eye. For instance if you have astigmatism, a condition that alters the focus of the eye, lenses that correct for this problem known as toric lenses can be considered. By the same token for those patients who prefer greater independence from glasses multifocal and accommodative lens designs may be appropriate.All of our physicians (Drs Jeff Martin, Larry Zweibel, Sonya Dhar and John Mauro) at North Shore Eye Care are board certified from the American Board of Ophthalmology. We serve patients throughout Long Island.
