The experts at North Shore Eye Care describe the community they've created within their New York practice. Their professionalism and compassion for the patients they treat help make the practice one of the best known in the area. Striving to build life-long relationships is one of the many unique goals created by the team at North Shore Eye Care as providing life-changing results.
State of the art eye care, delivered with the highest level of personal
service, at North Shore Eye Care, it's more than a promise. It's a family
tradition, a tradition that started over 50 years ago.
North Shore Eye Care was founded by my father in 1962. It was founded by my
father with my mother as his only employee. They practiced out of a rental
apartment on the west side of Smithtown. Back then, there were no office
buildings in Smithtown, so that's how they did it.
My father was a very special man. In addition to being an excellent
clinician and knowing the importance of technology and technique when it
came to ophthalmology and ophthalmic surgery, the cornerstone of who he
was, was being a kind and warm person. The thing that my father taught me
is that it is of the utmost importance to treat people with kindness and
warmth and compassion.
Today, that desire to build relationships remains at the heart of North
Shore Eye Care Service.
I think the emphasis on customer service and taking care of patients is
what sets North Shore Eye Care apart. We have the very best in technology.
We strive to have the very best in surgical technique. But, at the end of
the day, we take care of our patients and make them feel comfortable and
confident throughout their journey with us.
North Shore Eye Care offers a complete range of services for every member
of the family, from routine exams to cataract and glaucoma treatment, to
advanced laser surgery, delivered by an amazing team of professionals.
Our medical team is first rate. We have doctors that all share the same
philosophy of doing the very best for their patients. We have
ophthalmologists in their 30s with that ambitious knowledge, just starting
out. We have ophthalmologists that are in their later 60s. The two mix
together to really provide a balanced and excellent team of eye care
North Shore Eye Care also employs the most modern diagnosis and treatment
technology, including a dedicated state of the art laser treatment center.
My LASIK basically includes all the latest innovations that have been
involved with LASIK over the past decade. One of these innovations is
bladeless LASIK technology. We also offer CustomVue™ laser corrections,
which means everybody gets their own individual correction. I think the
main advantage of having the LASIK Center on the premises is basically
convenience. Also, they get to see the LASIK Center when they come in for
their LASIK evaluations, so when they come here for the day of surgery,
they're a little bit more at ease. They know what to expect.
It's easy to see why North Shore Eye Care has grown into one of New York's
most respected practices.
We at North Shore Eye Care are proud that three of our ophthalmologists
have been repeatedly honored with Top Doctor: New York Metro Area by Castle
Connolly. Top Doctor: New York Metro Area is an award given by Castle
Connolly that can't be bought or advertised into, so myself, Dr. Lawrence
Zweibel, and Dr. Grace O'Malley are all included in this list.
Our affiliation with professional sports teams has been amazing for us. To
be involved with the New York Islanders, as the official eye care provider,
and with the New York Mets, as the official LASIK provider, has been
amazing for the staff and the doctors here at North Shore Eye Care. It's
exciting to be involved with professional athletes and especially
professional athletes at the top of their game. They need vision to be as
acute as possible, and we're up for the challenge.
Building relationships for life by offering the highest level of eye care
combined with the most personal, compassionate service, that's the
tradition shared by the people of North Shore Eye Care.
