North Shore Eye Care serves the residents of Hicksville with a variety of concerns including cataract surgery. At North Shore eye care, our board certified eye doctors specialize in cataract surgery. We are leaders on Long Island in the field of cataract treatment and also specialize in premium intraocular lens implants following cataract removal. A cataract is a clouding of the natural crystalline lens of the eye. When a cataract becomes significant enough that it interferes with a patient's quality of life with symptoms such as glare with oncoming headlights while driving at night, sunlight glare and blurred vision, cataract surgery can be entertained. At our Smithtown eye care facility, we use the latest techniques in cataract surgery. Our cataract surgery takes a few minutes, is painless in most cases and we rarely need to use needles around the eyes, stitches, or even an eye patch following cataract surgery. Our patients return home the very same day and begin their postoperative drops at that time.
When we remove a defective cataract lens, we replace it with an intraocular lens implant. This implant can be of the standard variety, allowing great distance vision on those without astigamatism. There are also premium implants that allow far and near vision without glasses in many cases. These implants are multifocal implants such as restor and tecnis multifocal or accommodating implants such as Crystalens. We also use the acrysof toric implant to reduce or eliminate astigmatism. North Shore eye care is a national crystalens center of excellence. At times, there needs to be a minor adjustment for best results with premium cataract surgery. We offer that at no charge using the best in bladeless custom lasik called iLASIK for all of our premium cataract surgery patients. Also, we offer zero percent financing to help our patients with the premium line of intraocular lenses.
