Meet Dr. William Kasper
William S. Kasper, M.D., F.A.C.S., is the Emeritus Acting Chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology of Winthrop-University Hospital, Mineola, N.Y., a position that he held for 15 years. The eye doctor has been listed in the prestigious Castle and Connolly publication, "How to Find the Best Doctors: New York Metro Area," for the last 16 years, an honor bestowed by patients and colleagues. As past Presidents of the Long Island Ophthalmological Society, and the Ophthalmology Section of the Nassau Academy of Medicine, he has contributed both to the scientific and educational information of its members. Nassau County Medical Center Ophthalmology Residency training has been a priority over the years, teaching the young eye doctors both the art and science of the specialty. Journal publications have included topics dealing with laser iridotomies, current concepts of cataract surgery and intraocular lenses, a toxic eye medication, corneal iron lines and edema, and rhinosporidiosis of the eyelid. Internet articles have dealt with eyelid lesions, toric lenses, diabetic nerve palsy, and insurance problems. Research projects in the past have been funded by Hoffman-LaRoche Pharmaceutical firm evaluating treatment for Diabetes Mellitus, and presently an ongoing clinical investigation exists for Amgen involving ocular evaluation associated with prostate cancer treatment.
The practice emphasizes the early diagnosis and treatment of ocular disorders. Urgent and emergency patients are given appointments to rapidly resolve their problems. Treatment is often coordinated with your primary physician and consultations and referrals to specialists are managed expeditiously. Common conditions that are treated are cataracts, glaucoma, diabetes mellitus, wet and dry macular degeneration, strabismus or double vision, amblyopia, eyelid growths, bacterial and viral ocular infections, eyeglass examinations, eye fatigue, migraines, headaches, excessive tearing, dry eye syndromes, styes, chalazions, pterygia, allergies, contact lens queries, vitamin therapy, ptosis, blepharitis, traumatic injuries, ocular herpes and shingles. With many years of medical and surgical expertise, Dr. Kasper and his colleagues are committed to providing the best state of the art resolution of your eye problems, both for children and adults.
Caring support to the patient and family is offered and everyone is treated as an individual, not a number. Your sight is a precious gift and the practice is geared to give you the best possible results. The doctor's fluency in French and Spanish, and ability to give examinations in several other languages are very helpful. Consultation reports are sent to the referring physicians, optometrists and opticians. The eye doctors are very friendly and knowledgeable, and happy to assist you in any way they can. Brochures are offered to clarify conditions. Our location is central in Garden City, and adequate free parking is available adjacent to the professional building. The bus stops at the office and the Long Island Railroad station is a few blocks away. On a personal note, the doctor enjoys traveling to different countries. Babysitting for two granddaughters several times a month is a favorite pastime. Marine biology, invertebrate zoology and fishing have always been his hobbies. He is still in touch with most of his Brooklyn College fraternity brothers.
Our mission is to restore patients' vision using the best and safest technology.Dr. Martin & Dr. Passarelli
