Ronkonkoma Eye Care
Ronkonkoma is a Hamlet located in Suffolk County. It is within the Town of Islip and near to the Long Island MacArthur Airport which is recognized as one of the top five regional airports in the country. Lake Ronkonkoma is on the north that split between Brookhaven and Smithtown townships. The Smithtown side of the lake was settled by the 1740s, but it was not until the late 1890s that the area gained widespread public attention. That's when boarding houses and hotels were erected to accommodate a growing number of tourists drawn by claims that the lake's waters had special healing powers. By the 1920s, beach pavilions had sprung up. The Long Island Rail Road, which was completed to nearby Lakeland in 1842 (the depot was moved to Ronkonkoma in 1883), helped transform what had been a sleepy farming hamlet.
Lake Ronkonkoma was a popular Long Island summer resort in the late 1800s early 1900s. There were a few boarding houses in town. One of the hotels on the lake was the Lake Front Hotel situated on twenty-four acres of land on the Lakes shore. Most of the original settlers and local residents chose to live away from the lakefront. The land one half mile or so beyond the lake was flatter and better suited for farming. Little by little, the lakefront developed into a fashionable haven for the wealthier people who had summer estates there. Lake Ronkonkoma became a summer resort and it was quite exclusive, a place for the wealthy and famous from New York City.
North Shore Eye Care serves the residents of Ronkonkoma with a variety of concerns including Uveitis. An eye doctor can make the diagnosis and treatment based on the symptoms and a complete physical examination. Depending on suspicion for diseases that also affects other organs, appropriate tests are done. Uveitis is a serious eye disease and can rapidly damage the eye. It can cause long-term, vision-threatening complications, such as glaucoma, and cataracts. Many people have only one episode of uveitis. Others may have periodic recurrences over months to years. Uveitis can occur because of infection, autoimmune disorders (which causes the body to attack its own tissues), or for unknown reasons.
Examples of autoimmune disorders include; Anklosing Spondylitis, Antiphospholipid Syndrome, Addisons Disease, Hepatitis, Behcets Disease, Pemphigoid, Crohns Disease, Dermatomyositis, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Graves Disease, Juvenile Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Myasthenia Gravis, Polyarteritis Nodosa, Polymyalgia Rheumatica, Psoriasis, Reiters Syndrome, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sarcoidosis, Scleroderma, Sjogrens Syndrome, Temporal Arteritis/Giant Cell Arteritis, Ulcerative Colitis, Wegeners Granulomatosis.
