Our History

SightMD was founded by Jeffrey Martin, M.D. and John Passarelli, M.D. Their mission was to combine 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 vision center that put patients first.  They married sophisticated technology and a personalized approach to provide unparalleled patient care, and kept their doors open 7 days a week to be available when patients need help. Today SightMD has expanded to 40 locations 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.
