Sea Cliff Eye Doctors
Sea Cliff is a village located in Nassau County, on the North Shore of Long Island, New York. It is within the Town of Oyster Bay and the "Gold Coast" communities on the North Shore. During 17th century, the land referred to by settlers as Muskeeta Cove meaning ''cove of grassy flats'' and was purchased from the Indians by an Englishman, Joseph Carpenter. In 1870s, the area was developed as a religious retreat by Methodists from New York City. They constructed a giant tabernacle and camp meeting ground atop the cliff, attracting thousands of worshipers to summer weekend religious services. The village was named for its location on a bluff by the sea. The former and merged names include Carpentersville, Littleworth, and Sea Cliff Grove. The Village of Sea Cliff became an incorporated on Oct. 10, 1883 which makes it the fourth oldest on Long Island and among the oldest in New York State.
Among of its residents were William Cullen Bryant (poet and journalist), Natalie Portman (actress), and Robert Olen Butler (novelist). Sea Cliff is known for its beautiful views and sunsets at Memorial Park located at the intersection of Prospect and Sea Cliff Avenues which provides breathtaking views of Hempstead Harbor and the New York and Connecticut Shorelines. The North Shore Central School District is serving the entire area as well as the neighboring villages of Glen Head and Glenwood landing and parts of Old Brookville, Greenvale and Roslyn Harbor. Many special events took place in the village around the year. Sea Cliff hosts a street fair on the first weekend of October. This fair is host to many individuals selling crafts and food. The boating season also will begin on Memorial Day with a blessing of the fleet in Hempstead Harbor. It receives a lot of boat traffic due to the three yacht clubs and two marinas that are situated in and by the harbor. The village has its own beach which the local government is still upgrading its beachfront facilities. Sea Cliff has also a total of 16 parks surrounded with tall trees, lovely gardens, gracious space, and its beautiful views of the water below the cliff and along the shoreline.
North Shore Eye Care serves the residents of Sea Cliff with a variety of concerns including laser macular degeneration. Macular degeneration represents the leading cause of blindness in people 60 years and older. The good news is that by using nutritional supplements and modifying risk factors the chances of developing this disabling problem can be reduced. Furthermore, active research is underway that promises to give even better success in the effort to preserve vision. This is an important problem to solve as approximately 10% of the population in this country between the ages of 66 to 74 already have some degree of macular degeneration and almost 1/3 of the population between 75 and 85 have it. With 78 million baby boomers living in this country and the first of them turning 65 this past January, this amounts to a lot of visual disability.
