Glen Cove Eye Care
Glen Cove is a city located in Nassau County, on the North Shore of Long Island, New York. It is surrounded by the Town of Oyster Bay. The city has over ten miles of waterfront including: three public beaches, two nature preserves, a public golf course, and a public park. It was on May 24, 1668 when Joseph Carpenter of Warwick Rhode Island purchased about 2,000 acres of land to the northwest of the Town of Oyster Bay from the Matinecock Indians. He and his partners, brothers Robert, Daniel and Nathaniel Coles, and Nicholas Simkins saw a great potential in their new community. The five young men named the settlement “Musketa Cove,” which in the Matinecock language means “this place of rushes”. They constructed a saw mill and a gristmill across what is now known as Glen Cove Creek. The harbor was ideal for shipping lumber to New York City and the creek was dammed to provide power for the mills. There was a war happened in the area and most of Musketa Cove residents were at first uninterested in taking an active part in the Revolution. Throughout the war, dozens of British Provincial Corps (armed loyalists) and Hessian regiments were stationed on Long Island, housed in homes abandoned by Patriots who had fled the area. The population of Musketa Cove in the decade after the Revolution grew to nearly 250. In 1834, there was a public meeting held and the local residents agreed to change the name of the community to Glen Cove. After the revolution, there were major industries took place in the community such as mining of clay, building of Duryea Corn Starch Manufacturing Company, and many more.

North Shore Eye Care serves the residents of Glen Cove with a variety of concerns including Lasik and cataract surgery. North Shore eye care always strives to have the top technology. Pentacam is a state of the art corneal topography technology that helps our board certified eye surgeons to be as precise and safe as possible. In bladless custom lasik, it is imperative that our lasik surgeons know that the patient is an excellent candidate for laser vision correction. The pentacam gives important information about the front of the cornea, the back of the cornea, corneal thickness over the whole cornea as well as systems that alert the eye doctor if something is outside of normal. We are thrilled to give our patients this wonderful technology.
In cataract surgery following laser eye surgery, it is imperative to get the true corneal power. Most measuring devices are not able to get the true corneal power because they are unable to measure the center of the cornea and the cornea has been altered by laser vision correction. The Pentacam has a program designed by world renowned ophthalmologist, Dr. Jack Holladay, that is able to give our board certified cataract surgeons to get that measurement that has been difficult to obtain by other technology. Dr. Martin, Dr. Zweibel, and Dr. Mauro feel confident that by adding the Pentacam, we can now deliver even more precise and accurate eye care to our patients.
