About SightMD Cataract & LASIK Experts

SightMD was founded by combining two of the finest ophthalmology practices on Long Island—North Shore Eye Care and Long Island Eye Surgical Care—into a state-of-the-art eye care practice that put patients first. They married sophisticated technology and a personalized approach to provide unparalleled patient care and have expanded with offices throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties, Manhattan, Queens, and Westchester.

In 2020, SightMD’s mission expanded into New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. The doctors of Athwal, Susskind & Almallah, Lakhani, and Shore Eye Associates in Ocean and Monmouth County came together as SightMD New Jersey. Progressive Vision Institute and Betz Ophthalmology Associates with locations in Schuylkill, Berks, Northumberland, Union, and Philadelphia Counties, merged together to form SightMD Pennsylvania. The doctors at Fichman Eye Center in Hartford and Litchfield counties are now SightMD Connecticut.

Glaucoma Treatment

Glaucoma Treatment

Glaucoma is a condition that develops when the eyeball experiences increased pressure, eventually leading to a gradual loss of sight. The only general symptom of glaucoma is when a person notices a slow loss in his or her vision. Unfortunately, there is no cure for this condition. If detected early enough by the top-rated eye care doctors at SightMD, however, glaucoma can be treated and monitored to slow its progression and to prevent further vision loss. If you have noticed any change to how you see, no matter how slight, make an appointment to have your vision tested at SightMD.
