Roslyn Harbor Eye Care
Roslyn Harbor is an incorporated village located in Nassau County, on the North Shore of Long Island, New York. The county seat is Mineola. It overlaps the Town of Oyster Bay and the Town of North Hempstead. The village is considered part of the Greater Roslyn area, which is anchored by the Village of Roslyn. Roslyn harbor has a total area of 1.2 square miles, all of it land. The neighborhood was originally taken its name after Roslin Castle in Scotland, became a colony of artists and writers, attracted by the scenic harbor and William Cullen Bryant, a leading poet and publisher who once settled here in 1843. He donated a library-meeting house to the residents here for their “intellectual and social improvement,” in time for the nation's 1876 centennial. The area was threatened for a demolition in order to widen the Main Street into a major north-south thoroughfare by Nassau County.
Roger Gerry, the founder of Roslyn suddenly organized Roslyn Preservation Inc., which bought threatened historic structures and resold them to buyers who would like to restore them. He also instituted the Roslyn Landmark Society, which conducts annual tours of the pristinely preserved area, now protected as a national historic district. Roslyn Harbor became incorporated in 1931. The Nassau County Museum of Art (NCMA) is the famous landmark in Roslyn Harbor. The museum fosters exhibitions of local artists, art education for all ages, and various other cultural activities to make the enjoyment of art available to all.
North Shore Eye Care serves the residents of Roslyn Harbor with a variety of concerns including laser vision correction cataract surgery. Today, North Shore Eye Care is a modern eye care practice that specializes in advanced cataract surgery and laser vision correction. Technology has revolutionized cataract surgery making it a safer, more successful surgery. Dr. Lawrence Zweibel, Dr. Jeffrey Martin and our newest associate, Dr. John Mauro all use state of the art cataract surgery and laser vision correction procedures. In cataract surgery, the cloudy lens of the eye or cataract is removed using phacoemulsification or computer controlled high speed ultrasound through a small incision that seals without stitches. No eye patch is necessary in most cases and needles around the eye are also not necessary.
Our patients return home the very same day and experience no pain in most cases. Our board certified eye doctors and eye surgeons, Dr. Zweibel, Dr. Martin, and Dr. Mauro all specialize in intraocular implant technology including accommodating lenses like the Crystalens and the Crystalens HD. We also use multifocal implants like the Restor and the Tecnis multifocal lens. The Acrysof Toric implant reduces or eliminates astigmatism in most cases and our patients with these premium implants are able to see well without the need of glasses or contact lenses.
