We perform over a thousand cataract surgeries each year by using the most advanced techniques. Dr. Martin, Dr. Zweibel, Dr Dhar and Dr Mauro rarely use stitches, periocular needle injections or even eye patches. All of our doctors are board certified at North Shore Eye Care. In cataract surgery, the cataract or cloudy lens of the eye is removed through a small incision using gentle ultrasound called phacoemulsification and 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 and the rezoom. 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 Larry Zweibel, Jeff Martin, 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, including Smithtown, Huntington, Babylon, Melville, Cold Spring Harbor, Kings Park to the westernmost areas of the isand such as Port Washington, Manhassat, Roslyn, Lawrence, Merrick, Wantagh, Hewett, Long Beach and into New York City including the five boroughs.
