Serving patients seeking cataract surgery with Crystalens, AcrySof ReSTOR, ReZoom, Tecnis IOLs in Long Island and the New York Metropolitan area

The eye surgeons of Ophthalmic Consultants of Long Island are board-certified ophthalmologists who specialize in refractive and cataract surgery. This outstanding medical team features some of the nation's leading eye surgeons, including one of the first surgeons to perform refractive surgery. Due to their exceptional surgical record, state-of-the-art technology and unsurpassed care, Ophthalmic Consultants of Long Island has earned a reputation for excellence throughout the Long Island area.

The surgical team of Ophthalmic Consultants of Long Island specializes in cataract surgery with premium and conventional intraocular lens implants (IOLs). During the procedure, the cataract surgeon creates a small incision in the eye. Then, the clouded lens (cataract) is removed and replaced with a premium or conventional IOL. Ophthalmic Consultants offers a variety of IOLs to treat patients' unique needs, including the accommodating Crystalens and the multifocal AcrySof ReSTOR, ReZoom and Tecnis. The Crystalens IOL gently flexes with the eye's muscles, improving the patient's ability to change focus from near to distant objects. The multifocal AcrySof ReSTOR, ReZoom and Tecnis IOLs treat nearsightedness and age-related farsightedness (presbyopia), allowing patients to focus on near, intermediate and distant objects.

In addition to cataract surgery, the team of Ophthalmic Consultants of Long Island performs refractive surgery, glaucoma treatment, retina surgery and various oculoplastic procedures. They also offer Verisyse implantable collamer lenses, which are placed over the eye's natural lens to improve patients' vision.

To schedule a one-on-one consultation with the surgeons of Ophthalmic Consultants of Long Island and learn more about your cataract surgery and vision correction options, contact their office at (800) 781-8320.
