North Shore Eye Care serves the residents of Wantagh with a variety of concerns including laser vision correction. North Shore eye care in Smithtown has four board certified eye surgeons that perform the very best in laser eye surgery including bladeless custom lasik. Our lasik surgeons, Dr. Larry Zweibel, Dr. Jeffrey Martin, and Dr. John Mauro, are committed to give each of their patients the very best results. We use Intralase to make a safe and precise blade-free flap in every case. By using iLASIK, we are able to create a custom fingerprint of your visual system called an wavemap. This wavemap is used to create a custom laser vision correction ablation. The lasik information is transferred from computer to computer without the chance of mistakes with manual input.
North Shore Eye Care has recently doubled in size and added technology such as the Pentacam corneal topography machine to make certain that our patients have the best possible eye care. Our eye doctors continue to stay at the cutting edge of laser vision correction. This is why there is never a blade used in our lasik and every laser eye surgery is customized to our patient's unique eyes.
