May Symposium By North Shore Eye Care Draws Eye Doctors From Across Long Island

Smithtown, New York (PRWEB) May 04, 2013

Primary eye care doctors from across the state will attend the 2013 Summer Long Island Optometric Symposium on May 5th in Hauppauge, NY according to leading eye surgeon, Jeffrey Martin, MD, medical director at North Shore Eye Care, host of this annual continuing education program.

During the past few years, this joint meeting between the optometric community and leaders in ophthalmology has become one of the premiere optometric events held on Long Island. This Summer’s symposium is being held Sunday, May 5th at the Hamlet at Wind Watch Golf & Country Club in Hauppauge, NY. This year’s medical event features lectures on advances in cataract care, glaucoma management, macular degeneration, corneal transplantation and the future of optometry. In addition to eye surgeons Jeffrey Martin, MD, Faye Knoll, MD, John Mauro, DO who will be presenting at the meeting, Dr. Brett Rosenblatt, Dr. Lawrence M. Buono, Dr. Marc Meyers and Dr. Andrew Gurwood are also featured guest speakers.

“My colleagues and I at North Shore Eye Care are proud to be part of this prestigious continuing education symposium,” Dr. Martin. As Long Island’s most established comprehensive ophthalmic eye care provider, North Shore Eye Care has always maintained a close working relationship with the optometric community across Long Island. “We’re also very pleased to see the growth our course has experienced over the years. It is truly an excellent way for our primary eye care providers to not only earn their required Continuing Education credit each year, but also for us to share the latest breakthroughs in cataract removal and lens implantation, macular & retinal disease treatments, laser vision correction techniques, managing glaucoma and triaging infectious or inflammatory eye conditions.”

Attending optometrists will learn how to interpret various eye conditions, see actual case studies of infectious eye conditions, receive updates on managing difficult cataract and glaucoma cases and learn the most recent updates on cataract surgery and laser surgery being performed around the world.

“We host this annual event to assist our primary eye care colleagues in not only fulfilling their required continuing education credits, but to also strengthen the professional relationships between secondary surgical ophthalmic care providers and primary eye care providers,” said Dr. Martin. “Our goal with this program is to help ensure that Long Island residents continue receiving the highest quality eye care available today and to grant them access to the same advanced eye care found in major medical centers.”
