Bayville Eye Doctors
Bayville is a village located in Nassau County, Long Island, New York. It is within in the Town of Oyster Bay. In 1658, an English farmer named Daniel Whitehead purchased the land from the Matinecock Indians. The narrow tract faces northward onto Long Island Sound and southward onto Mill Neck Bay and Oyster Bay. The former names include Oak Neck and Pine Island. During mid-60's and early 70's, the development in Bayville came to a near stop as the Legislature in Albany debated whether to build a bridge across Long Island Sound from Bayville to Rye. The place would have become a base for bridge supports and ramps. After a bitter battle led by Bayville residents, Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller killed the plans for the bridge in 1973. It has taken a decade for Bayville to recover from the economic damage caused by the threat of the bridge. Now, new housing construction has just about used up the rest of the land available for development.
Bayville is a great place to live, work, and raise a family. It was a combination of hard-working fishing village and Gatsby-like estates. The village has kept the highest quality of life which is able to preserve the suburban tranquility and friendliness to the people. Many of Bayville's residents commute to Manhattan which is only a 35-mile ride on the Long Island Rail Road, using one of the two nearby stations; the Locust Valley station on the Oyster Bay Line and the Syosset station on the Port Jefferson Line. The village is also known for having a superior school system that offers every child the highest quality of education. It has a total of 9 public elementary schools, 2 public middle schools, and 4 private middle schools. The Bayville elementary and intermediate schools are situated in the center of the peninsula on a hilltop overlooking the village. The residents are within 10 minutes of a beach. Other attractions include seaside restaurants and the waters of Mill Neck Bay and Oyster Bay Harbor that includes Steve's Pier One, with its tanks of live lobsters; L'Epicure, serving continental cuisine; Gian-Lorinzo, with its homemade pastas and other Italian specialties; the Pig 'n' Whistle, for hamburgers and steaks and Ralph's Pizza.
North Shore Eye Care serves the residents of Bayville with a variety of concerns including Diabetic exams. Diabetes, a leading cause of blindness in the United States is now more treatable than ever. Newer, injectable medications are now available that can reverse the harmful effects from abnormal blood vessel formation that can result in bleeding and swelling known as macula edema. However, before one ever gets to the stage where treatment is necessary, careful medical management has been shown to reduce the need for treatment. Recent studies have confirmed what doctors have suspected for a long time, that is by aggressively treating high blood sugar you can significantly reduce the need for treatment. The problem is that if the blood sugar level is too tightly controlled it has been shown to be dangerous for many individuals. This is probably related to the fact that these people may be prone to hypoglycemia or low blood sugar levels which may lead to premature death. For this reason diabetics need to be monitored closely so that blood sugar levels can be maintained at safe levels.
Optimizing cholesterol levels has also shown to have a beneficial effect. In addition to using statins such as lipitor which can significantly lower cholesterol levels, adding fenofibrate which lowers triglycerides while increasing HDL can also slow the progression of this disease., and what's good for the eyes is good for the heart since cardiovascular disease is also greatly reduced. Another variable that was examined in a recent study was hypertension. While it is known that severe hypertension can worsen diabetic retinopathy, overly aggressive treatment i.e. lowering blood pressure from 140 to120 had no effect. All patients recently diagnosed with diabetes should have a thorough eye exam.
