Date:9/12/2013

Southold, Long Island (PRWEB) September 12, 2013

In their continuing effort to expand their comprehensive eye care services, the doctors and staff of North Shore Eye Care proudly welcome Lawrence M. Buono, M.D., a Fellowship-Trained Neuro Ophthalmologist who trained at the world-renowned Wills Eye Institute in Philadelphia, PA and his wife, Christine Speer-Buono, MD a general ophthalmologist.

Dr. Buono is a New York native who grew up in the area and enjoys the opportunity to continue practicing on the east end of Long Island. “I am honored by the opportunity to join the medical staff of such a progressive and established eye center as North Shore Eye Care,” said Dr. Buono, who along with his wife have been practicing on the east end of Long Island for nearly nine years. “North Shore Eye Care has a rich tradition of excellence on Long Island and our philosophies on patient care are a perfect fit.”

In addition to Dr. Buono’s extensive experience in treating complex ocular and neuro-ophthalmic conditions, he also has considerable experience with implanting presbyopia-correcting intraocular lenses and treating complicated cataract cases. He currently serves on staff at Southampton Hospital, Eastern Long Island Hospital and Peconic Bay Medical Center.

“I love the challenge of treating complex cataract and neuro-ophthalmic conditions,” said Dr. Buono, “but also thoroughly enjoy utilizing all of the breakthroughs in lens implant technology, diagnostics and surgical techniques to help improve our results in standard cataract surgery.”

Dr. Buono completed his medical degree at Thomas Jefferson Medical College. After completion of a medical/surgical internship at the Presbyterian Hospital/ University of Pennsylvania, he returned to New York for his ophthalmology residency at New York Medical College in Valhalla. Upon completion of his residency, he completed a neuro-ophthalmology fellowship at the Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia. Dr. Buono then served as an Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at Duke University in the neuro-ophthalmology and comprehensive ophthalmology divisions and has authored numerous papers in the ophthalmic literature, and has educated medical students, residents, and fellows.

“It is rare to have a physician of Dr. Buono’s training and expertise join our medical staff,” said Jeffrey Martin, MD. “With Dr. Buono’s training and expertise, we feel confident that our level of comprehensive eye care that we now offer out of our six Long Island locations meets or surpasses the services found in the leading eye centers in the world.” Dr. Buono and Dr. Speer-Buono will be practicing in the Southold, Riverhead and Southampton offices of North Shore Eye Care.

Also joining North Shore Eye Care’s medical staff is Dr. Buono’s wife, Christine Speer Buono, MD, FACS. Dr. Speer Buono graduated from Vanderbilt University with a degree in Chemistry and Spanish, then returned to her home state of Arkansas to receive her medical degree and graduate first in her class from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. She completed an internship at Georgetown Hospital/ INOVA Fairfax Hospital and then residency at the Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, PA. After her residency completion, Dr. Buono became an Assistant Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at the Duke Eye Center where she practiced comprehensive ophthalmology including cataract surgery.

She also educated medical students and residents through lectures, clinics, and surgical staffing. Since that time, Dr. Buono has enjoyed being a part of this outstanding practice on the East End. Her interests include cataract surgery, laser surgery for glaucoma and after cataract surgery, dry eye, glaucoma, herpetic eye disease, and other anterior segment disorders. She enjoys caring for and being a part of our community. She is on staff at Southampton Hospital and the Suffolk Surgery Center.

“Ophthalmology provides me ample opportunities to enrich the lives of my patients,” said Dr. Buono, “and I consider it an honor to help make a measurable difference in their lives every day.”
The entire medical staff at North Shore Eye Care is proud to have the husband and wife ophthalmic team on staff. “Dr. Buono and his wife have brought a wealth of knowledge in several areas of ophthalmic care to our practice and have been excellent additions to our growing team of surgeons,” said Dr. Martin.

North Shore Eye Care is Long Island’s most established full-service comprehensive eye care provider. This year they are celebrating 50 years of eye care excellence since Dr. Sidney Martin founded the practice in 1962. North Shore Eye Care is also the official Eye Care Provider for the New York Islanders and the official LASIK Providers of the New York Mets. Many of their doctors have been voted ‘TOP DOCTORS’ in the New York Metro Area by Castle Connolly and North Shore Eye Care has earned ‘Best Of Long Island’ honors for the past few years.
