North Shore Eye Care is the place to go to meet all your eye needs.
Boasting the largest Lasik facility in Suffolk County, North Shore Eye Care leads the way in laser vision corrective surgery. In addition to having the latest equipment such as the Intralase that enables us to perform blade free Lasik to insure your safety we are able to significantly improve your vision. Most patients, in fact, feel their vision far exceeds the vision they previously had with their glasses or contacts.
Likewise we offer the latest techniques in cataract surgery. While older patients with very advanced cataracts may take somewhat longer to recover, performing sutureless, small incision surgery patients often see well the very next day. Our Board Certified skilled surgeons who have been recognized in Castle Connelly’s Top Doctors in the New York Metro area are able to individualize for you the best intraocular lens implant that replaces your cataract. Patients who had significant astigmatism all their lives are able to reduce or eliminate this problem at the time of cataract surgery by choosing from a wide array of toric intraocular lenses. Likewise those patients who would like increased freedom from glasses can pick from either multifocal lenses or accommodative lenses that simultaneously offer both clear distant and near vision.
In addition to having specialists in laser vision and cataract surgery at North Shore Eye Care we also have specialists in audiology, lid plastic surgery, ocular inflammations commonly known as uveitis, and glaucoma.
