Cornea Specialist - Smithtown, New York


Dr. Knoll feels most rewarded by her job when she visits with her patients after a cornea transplant or other life-changing treatment and hears how pleased they are with the results. The expertise and wealth of knowledge available from her coworkers at North Shore Eye Care have made Dr. Knoll's experience satisfying and successful.

Dr. Faye Knoll is North Shore Eye Care's cornea and external disease specialist. She was born and raised on long island. After graduating high school as salutatorian, she went on to complete her undergraduate studies at SUNY Binghamton where she majored in Biology and minored in Spanish. At Binghamton she was elected into the Phi Beta Kappa Society and graduated Summa Cum Laude. While at Binghamton, she was granted early acceptance into medical school due to her impressive GPA and extracurricular activities. Following the completion of her B.A., Dr. Knoll attended medical school at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY where she was elected into the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society and graduated Cum Laude. It was in medical school when Dr. Knoll realized how exciting and interesting the field of ophthalmology was. It is the only area of medicine where you can see blood vessels and nerves without having to perform surgery. Additionally the elegant surgical procedures combined with the lifelong relationships eye doctors have with their patients further confirmed that ophthalmology was the career path for Dr. Knoll.

Subsequently, she completed a transitional intern year at Sound Shore Medical Center in New Rochelle, NY followed by an ophthalmology residency at North Shore - Long Island Jewish Hospital in Manhasset, NY. During her final year of residency, she also served as chief resident in ophthalmology.

After completing her residency, Dr. Knoll went on to complete a fellowship in cornea and external diseases of the eye at the renowned New York Eye and Ear Infirmary in New York City. Dr. Knoll's decision to focus on the cornea came from her observation that cornea specialists were able to drastically improve a person's vision more than any other subspecialists in ophthalmology. The cornea is the thin, clear piece of tissue at the front of the eye. It must be transparent and compact in order to see through it. Additionally, its shape is very important to our vision. If it is misshapen, the image we see becomes a blur. By altering the cornea's shape (as we do in laser vision correction such as LASIK and PRK) eye doctors are able to dramatically improve a person's vision. Furthermore, should the cornea become damaged and scarred, we are able to perform corneal transplants, giving people who were once blind a second chance at sight. Dr. Knoll's special interests include penetrating keratoplasty, Descemet's Automated Endothelial Stripping Keratoplasty (DSAEK), cataract surgery, anterior segment reconstruction, and refractive surgery.

Dr. Knoll has been active in ophthalmic research and has presented at multiple national meetings. As an eye doctor, she is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.

While Dr. Knoll takes great satisfaction and pride out of her career as an ophthalmologist, her greatest loves are her husband, son and dog. Her favorite pastimes include reading, listening to music and visiting with friends and family. She also enjoys yoga and jogging.
