Current technology makes spectacle-free vision available to almost every adult. The board certified ophthalmologists at North Shore Eye embraces modern technologies such as laser cataract surgery and the implantation of specialized lenses to correct astigmatism and presbyopia. Cataract surgery takes about 10 minutes, is painless, and the vast majority of patients do not need injections or stitches. Most of our cases are are performed at an ambulatory surgery center dedicated for eye surgery to ensure the best staff and equipment. If there is no cataract, LASIK surgery is available to all age groups. At North Shore Eye we offer the increased safety of bladeless LASIK which is much safer and more precise than using a metal blade. We are also one of the first practices in Long Island to incorporate iDesign, the latest upgrade for wavefront treatment which offers the best quality treatments for myopia and astigmatism.
