Ophthalmic Consultants of Long Island (OCLI), the Largest and One of the Most Prestigious Multi-Specialty Ophthalmology Practices on Long Island, Participates in Mission Cataract USA
Date:7/20/2009

WESTBURY, N.Y., July 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Throughout August and September, doctors in the Ophthalmic Consultants of Long Island (OCLI) practice will perform FREE surgery at the Island Eye Surgicenter to give the gift of sight to those who have lost some or all of their vision because of cataracts. OCLI, a participant in the Mission Cataract USA program, is offering this outpatient surgical procedure to residents of Nassau, Suffolk and Queens who are not covered by medical insurance and who are unable to pay for the surgery themselves. For more information, please visit www.ocli.net.

"OCLI has a history of giving back to the community, through the personal efforts of our eye care doctors and as a group. This effort is one more piece of our OCLI 'Renewed Vision(TM)' program and it is an innovative way to give back to the community we serve" said Tom Burke, CEO of OCLI. He continued, "We participate in similar projects, such as Healthy Vision 2010 with The National Eye Institute and Eye Care America with the American Academy of Ophthalmology. These efforts help us reach vision and service objectives as part of a shared responsibility for national disease prevention that helps to improve the health of all Americans."

OCLI has performed charitable surgical procedures for many years with various local service organizations including The Lion's Eye Bank and The Sons of Italy. For this Mission Cataract effort, the doctors, technicians and nurses volunteer their services free of charge. The procedures will be performed at the Island Eye Surgicenter, in Carle Place.

Participating cataract surgeons include: Stanley Berke, MD, Robert Broderick, MD, Ronald Caronia, MD, Gerard D'Aversa, MD, Eric Donnenfeld, MD, Russell Fumuso, MD, David Nelson, MD, David Sachs, MD and Richard Sturm, MD.
