Lasik to Optimize Premium Cataract Surgery
At North Shore Eye Care in Riverhead and Smithtown New York in Long Island, cataract surgery is a successful outpatient procedure that helps many of our patients improve their quality of life each year. A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens of the eye that occurs as we age. Some people develop visually significant cataracts at an earlier age and there are things that make cataracts worse such as smoking, excessive UV light exposure, certain medications and medical conditions like diabetes. When blurred vision from a cataract interferes with a patient's daily activity, cataract surgery should be entertained. Our board certified cataract surgeons perform cataract surgery through a microscopic incision using topical anesthesia. We do not routinely use needles around the eyes, eye patches, or stitches. Our patients stay in their own clothes and return to the comfort of their home the very same day. Dr. Jeffrey Martin, Dr. Larry Zweibel and Dr. John Mauro are cataract surgery specialists and North Shore Eye Care has been named a National Crystalens Cataract Surgery Center of Excellence by Bausch and Lomb.
Our board certified eye doctors specialize in premium intraocular implants with cataract surgery. After a cataract is removed, a new implant lens or IOL is placed to restore vision.
You can have a standard implant that gives adequate distance vision in most cases, but patients still need glasses for reading and near tasks. With accommodating or multifocal implants, patients are able to see far and near without glasses in many cases. We use Crystalens, Restor, Rezoom, and Tecnis Multifocal intraocular implants. Depending on the patient, our eye surgeons discuss your specific needs and together, we decide which implant is best for you.
With premium intraocular lenses, it is imperative to have the most accurate results possible. In our Long Island New York eye care practice, we use the best technology to determine implant power for each patient. We use corneal topography, IOL Master, manual and automatic keratometry and review all of our measurements thoroughly. The wonderful thing about North Shore Eye Care is that if the intraocular lens power is not perfect, which happens occasionally even in the best of hands, we are able to adjust it using our bladeless custom lasik technology. Using the best technology in laser vision correction allows us to make fine adjustments to our cataract results if necessary. By specializing in cataract surgery and laser vision correction, results can be modified safely and with the best possible accuracy.
