Why Choose SightMD®?

SightMD® comprises two divisions, North Shore Eye Care and Long Island Eye Surgical Care. These practices merged in 2016 to provide more comprehensive care to patients, making the highest quality eye services available to all residents of Long Island. The vision of CEO Jeffrey Martin, M.D., and President John Passarelli, M.D., was to join the two best ophthalmology practices in the region in order to create the best practice on the Eastern seaboard. Our commitment to excellence has allowed us to become the official LASIK provider of the New York Mets. Athletes’ careers may hinge on the acuity of their vision, and they entrust us with their eyesight because they know that we consistently provide exceptional care.

All of our practices are aligned, and our team of doctors practices all sub-specialties in-house, allowing us to achieve a continuity of care. We believe that an enduring doctor-patient relationship is at the heart of good treatment, and we seek to build and maintain lifelong relationships. 

“North Shore Eye Care and Long Island Eye Surgical Care united because the companies share a common vision: providing patients with life-changing care that enables them to remain active and youthful as they enjoy excellent eyesight.”

We are available to see patients seven days a week at our 21 locations across Long Island. Our board-certified ophthalmologists understand the importance of your time. This is why we offer evening, Saturday, and Sunday appointments. Parking is available at our conveniently located offices.

Our Philosophy

We believe that there is nothing more precious than your eyesight. We will strive to preserve, enhance, and restore your vision, utilizing the greatest minds in the field and the most innovative technology available. Ultimately, our desire is to help all of our patients achieve excellent eyesight, prevent diseases of the eye, and make exceptional treatment available to all those who need it.

The History of North Shore Eye Care and Long Island Eye Surgical Care

North Shore Eye Care and Long Island Eye Surgical Care united because the companies share a common vision: providing patients with life-changing care that enables them to remain active and youthful as they enjoy excellent eyesight.

North Shore Eye Care, now globally recognized as a leading laser eye surgery group, was founded by Dr. Sidney Martin in Smithtown in 1963. Initially, he practiced out of his apartment, and his only employee was his wife. Dr. Martin moved his practice into its own building in the 1970s. In 1977, Dr. Lawrence Zweibel joined the practice, and Dr. Martin’s son, Dr. Jeffrey Martin, joined the practice in 1997. North Shore Eye Care has grown exponentially since its humble beginnings, and still proudly provides the individualized, warm, and compassionate care that Dr. Sidney Martin showed his patients, whom he considered friends. Today, the group has established 11 clinics across Long Island, offering the best in diagnostic and surgical technology.

Long Island Eye Surgical Care was founded as a small ophthalmology practice in 1975 by Dr. Richard Messina. Dr. Passarelli, a member of the staff, was impressed by Dr. Messina’s use of innovative technologies and commitment to make quality care accessible to everyone in the community. Dr. Passarelli wanted to be a part of this mission, and in 1985, he acquired the practice and gave it its current name. Just one year later, in 1986, Dr. Passarelli established a surgery center adjacent to the practice. The reputation of the group grew the company rapidly from the 80s through the 2000s, and it expanded, opening eight satellite locations around Long Island. The company still prides itself on being available to all patients, every day of the week.

Since the merger of these two successful practices, we now offer comprehensive ophthalmologic treatment and surgery in every specialty at 21 locations across Long Island.
