The cataract specialists at North Shore Eye Care strive to give our patients the very best results in every clinical setting. In routine cataract surgery, our board certified eye surgeons perform cataract surgery through microscopic incisions using eye drops to numb the surface of the eye. Our patients stay in their own clothes and return home a short time after completion of the cataract surgery. We do not routinely use needles, stitches or even an eye patch following surgery. Dr. Jeff Martin and Dr. Larry Zweibel have been recognized as Top Doctors in the New York Metro Area by Castle Connolly for excellence in the field of eye care and cataract surgery. North Shore Eye Care has also been recognized as a National Crystalens Cataract Surgery Center of Excellence by Bausch and Lomb.

Dr. Jeffrey Martin discusses certain clinical situations when considering cataract surgery. He goes over Fuchs' dystrophy, Flomax, and blood thinners. North Shore Eye Care ophthalmologists are experts in cataract surgery and can employ techniques to deal with any situation.

In more challenging cases, our cataract surgeons make certain that they have taken the necessary steps to ensure the very best outcome. There are several types of cataracts and confounding factors that can make cataract surgery more challenging. Whether cataract surgery is more difficult due to certain medications or an underlying anatomic deficiency, we are ready to use our knowledge and skill as well as every technological resource to provide the best cataract treatment.

I am so pleased with my vision after surgery. The team was friendly and made me feel very comfortable throughout the process.
