At SightMD next month we are having a LASIK Seminar by LASIK surgeon, Dr. John Mauro at our Smithtown office. To help kick off the Spring LASIK season on Long Island, we are hosting a ‘Live’ LASIK event on May 5th at 12pm at our Smithtown office. Celebrating Cinco de Mayo, this event is open to the public and attendees will witness a live LASIK procedure.
The LASIk will be performed by our very own eye surgeon, Dr John Mauro. Attendees will be able to speak with our LASIK patient immediately before and after the procedure, adding that they will also be able to watch the actual procedure being performed. The seminar is being held in the state-of-the-art LASIK center located in Smithtown at 260 Middle County Road, Suite 201. It features VISX Excimer laser technology, the Intralase Femtosecond laser and the all new Idesign system which was first introduced in Long Island by North Shore Eye Care. This is the same technology endorsed by NASA and the US military for performing LASIK on astronauts and active duty military personnel.
We have found that witnessing LASIK performed live – and then being able to speak with the patient immediately after surgery – is an exciting way to help patients overcome their fears or hesitation about having LASIK. Dr. Mauro will giving a brief lecture on LASIK surgery at 12pm and then will be performing the live procedure at approximately 12:30 pm. For people interested in attending, please call North Shore Eye Care/SightMD at 631-265- 8780.
