Holtsville Eye Doctors
Holtsville is Hamlet located in Suffolk County within the Town of Brookhaven and the Town of Islip. Holtsville was named after Joseph Holt, postmaster general. The former and merged names include Waverly Station. The hamlet known today as Holtsville included only a few farmhouses in the late 18th century. In 1843, the Long Island Rail Road opened its Waverly Station. Maps from that period label the area as Waverly, and a stagecoach line ran north-south along present day Waverly Avenue. As another town named Waverly already existed in Upstate New York, the name of the town was changed to Holtsville in 1860, in honor of U.S. Postmaster General Joseph Holt. As of 1874, Holtsville consisted of 15 houses, a school, and a general store. The train station retained the name "Waverly" for some time, but was eventually also changed to Holtsville, probably in the 1890s, after farmers complained about their shipments going to upstate by mistake. In 1916, the Suffolk County Tuberculosis Sanatorium opened on land that was considered Holtsville at the time, but is now part of the hamlet of Selden. The site later became the location of the main campus of Suffolk County Community College.

North Shore Eye Care serves the residents of Holtsville with a variety of concerns including Cataract surgery. North Shore eye care in Smithtown, Long Island is a leader in cataract surgery. Our advanced cataract surgery allows many of our patients to see well without glasses or contact lenses for far and near. With cataract surgery, our three board certified cataract experts perform the cataract surgery through a microscopic incision that does not require stitches, an eye patch or even needles around the eyes. The cataract is performed with the use of IV sedation and numbing eye drops.
When the defective cataract is removed, we replace the lens with an intraocular lens implant or IOL. The standard implant allows a patient to see far, but not near. If a patient has astigmatism, the toric implant is necessary for excellent distance vision without glasses. For those patients that want far and near vision without glasses, an accommodating or multifocal implant is necessary such as the Crystalens, Restor, Rezoom, or Tecnis multifocal. North Shore eye care is a National Crystalens Center or Excellence and Dr. Jeff Martin and Dr. Larry Zweibel are Top Doctors in the New York Metro Area. Dr. John Mauro was awarded Patient Choice.
