Great Neck Eye Doctors
Great Neck is a village in Nassau County located on the North Shore of Long Island, New York. The Village of Great Neck is in the Town of North Hempstead. The term Great Neck is also commonly applied to the entire peninsula on the north shore, comprising a residential community of some 40,000 people made up of nine villages as well as unincorporated areas of North Hempstead, of which it is the northwestern quadrant. Great Neck was named when Madnan's Neck was divided into two parts: Great Neck and Little Neck. The area had previously been inhabited by the Mattinecock Native Americans who were pushed back by the colonists' expansion. The broader area called Great Neck encompasses the village of the same name and eight other villages. In recent days, the area particularly the incorporated village of Kings Point provided a backdrop to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s book “The Great Gatsby”. The book themes and characters reflected the real-world transformation that Great Neck was experiencing at the time, as show-business personalities like Sid Caesar and the Marx Brothers bought homes in the hamlet and eventually established it as a sanctuary for Jews formerly of Brooklyn and the Bronx.

North Shore Eye Care serves the residents of Great Neck with a variety of concerns including cataract surgery. North Shore eye care is a state of the art cataract surgery center. Our board certified cataract experts, Dr. Jeffrey Martin, Dr. Larry Zweibel and Dr. John Mauro perform over one thousand cataract surgery procedures each year. Our eye doctors handle each patient from the first visit through the last post op visit. Our cataract surgery techniques involve small incisions without stitches, an eye patch or needles around the eyes. Cataract surgery usually takes a few minutes, is pain free and our patients return to the comfort of their home the very same day. In cataract surgery, the cloudy or defective lens of the eye is removed and an intraocular lens implant is placed to correct vision. This implant can be of the standard variety allowing excellent distance vision or can be a premium implant that allows for distance and near vision with reduced need or elimination of glasses for far and near.
