Shoreham Eye Care
Shoreham is an incorporated village located in Suffolk County, on the North Shore of Long Island, New York. It is within the Town of Brookhaven. In 1901, a radio pioneer Nikola Tesla constructed a laboratory here. They built the Wardenclyffe Tower also known as Tesla Tower, an early wireless telecommunications tower intended for commercial wireless trans-Atlantic telephony, broadcasting, and to demonstrate the transmission of power without interconnecting wires, which was dismantled in 1917.
The Shoreham Nuclear Power Plant was also located here and later disapproved as the result of public protest in 1975. This was the last attempt to construct a Nuclear Power plant in the US. The region is currently served by a coal-fired plant. While the plant was in operation, Tesla was a part-time resident of the village. Shoreham became an incorporated village in 1913. Today, Shoreham is known for its two unique qualities of its own: when incorporated, it was the smallest village in New York State; and it is the first municipality in the State to have concrete roads throughout its original incorporated area.
North Shore Eye Care serves the residents of Shoreham with a variety of concerns including corrective eye surgery. Two new advances in lasik surgery have made this procedure more attractive to prospective patients. The first being bladeless surgery. Thanks to intralase technology lasik flaps can now be created by laser. Secondly, due to customvue laser patients are truly amazed at the quality of their postoperative vision. While several lasers exist in the marketplace the "Intralase" by Abbott Medical Optics is currently the market leader. There are many clinical advantages to using this laser over blades to create the corneal flap used in lasik surgery. Amongst these are safety and the ability to create reliably thin flaps, thus preserving more corneal tissue. These flaps are also more uniform from center to periphery which results in better post operative vision.
Customvue analysis utilizes space age technology that analyzes light energy reflected from the eye in the form of a wave-front. This information is passed on to an aberrometer and then a computer yielding 25 times more information than an ordinary glass prescription. The net result is exceedingly clear vision. The lasik experts at North Shore Eye Care have vast surgical experience with lasik having performed it for greater than 10 years. Drs. Lawrence Zweibel and Jeffrey Martin have been consistently recognized in Castle Connelly's "Top Doctors" in the New York Metro area. They have recently been joined by Dr. John Mauro a fellowship trained lasik surgeon. All doctors are Board Certified Ophthalmologists.
