Choosing the Right LASIK Surgeon

At North Shore Eye Care, we make choosing the right LASIK surgeon simple. Our team has a wide range of expertise and experience.

Choosing the right LASIK surgeon is crucial. At the Riverhead and Smithtown, Long Island practices of North Shore Eye Care, we understand that you want your procedure to be performed by a skilled, experienced surgeon in an atmosphere of confidence and comfort. We believe that after careful consideration of all available facts, you will choose us to perform your LASIK surgery.

The following are factors that should be considered before you commit to LASIK surgery, and how we address them.

Your LASIK doctor should be board certified. All the surgeons at our Riverhead and Smithtown, Long Island offices have been certified in LASIK by the American Board of Ophthalmology. This certification ensures that a doctor's peers have judged him or her to be skillful enough to earn their support.

Most surgeons advertise the number of LASIK procedures they have performed, with good reason. Statistics show that the possibility of surgical complications decreases with experience, up to about 1,000 procedures. Each LASIK doctor at our Long Island practice has years of experience and an impressive record of success.

Your surgeon should provide complete information about your LASIK procedure before you make any commitment. At North Shore Eye Care, we schedule a comprehensive consultation with each prospective patient. We conduct a thorough examination and an evaluation of the patient's medical history. Most important, we take the time to listen and to answer all questions.

Just had my LASIK done last week. Wore contacts for the last ten years and my vision was terrible, couldn't see 20 feet in front of me. And now I have 20/20 vision and couldn't be happier.
