Premium cataract surgery refers to cataract surgery with usage of some of the newer lens implants. Patients come from all over long island to obtain a cataract evaluation.
When in the early stages, a cataract is usually mild and may only affect a portion of the lens. However,as the cataract grows larger it can make it tougher to see. Cataracts are like wrinkles in the skin, unfortunately as we get older, there inevitable and develop in both eyes. Here at North Shore Eye Care our board certified ophthalmologists (Dr Martin, Dr Zweibel and Dr Mauro) all specialize in cataract surgery.
With Cataract Surgery patients now have many choices in regards to the type of lens implant that will replace their cataract. The ability to be more independent from distance and reading glasses has become a high priority for many patients. Premium implants can be expensive and that is why we offer 0 % financing through Care Credit Financial Services. At North Shore Eye Care in Smithtown New York, we afford our patients the ability to not have to opt out of something that they want in tough economic times.
At North Shore Eye Care, here in our Smithtown, Long island, we perform the most advanced cataract surgery available. Cataract surgery has come a long way in the last thirty years. Through the use of conscious sedation, an incision under three millimeters is made in the cornea and the cataract is removed using high speed ultrasound (phacoemulsification). The entire procedure usually lasts about ten minutes. In our practice, needle injections around the eye are rare used and hence we do not routinely use sutures or patches. This gives our patients who are on anticoagulation (Coumadin, Plavix, Aspirin)the ability to continue there medicine prior to and after surgery. Our patients usually have quick recovery and are able to see right away.
We are happy to offer the latest in intraocular lenses in cataract surgery. Dr. Lawrence Zweibel, Dr. Jeffrey Martin and Dr. John Mauro use premium intraocular lenses such as: Crystalens, Acrysof Toric, Restor and Technis. Therefore
