In an effort to broaden their eye care coverage in the field of glaucoma management, the doctors and staff of North Shore Eye Care proudly welcome the latest addition to their medical staff, Andrew N. Bainnson, M.D., F.A.A.O., a Board Certified Fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology specializing in Glaucoma and General Ophthalmology.
“Having the opportunity to join the medical staff of such a progressive and established eye center as North Shore Eye Care is truly an honor,” said Dr. Bainnson. “With a reputation of eye care excellence that spans 50 years – and with offices throughout the greater eastern region of Long Island – I look forward to helping my colleagues further expand their services and reputation.”
Dr. Bainnson specifically specializes in the medical and laser treatment and diagnosis of glaucoma as well as the treatment of most ophthalmologic conditions including diabetes, macular degeneration, ocular trauma, cataracts and pediatrics. “The entire medical team and staff are excited to have someone of Dr. Bainnson’s calibre join us at North Shore Eye Care,” said Jeffrey Martin, MD. “Our initial goal with Dr. Bainnson is to have him seeing patients in our Riverhead office, where our list of comprehensive eye care services continues to expand. With Dr. Bainnson’s training and expertise, there is no need for anyone on the east end of Long Island to look any further than our Riverhead office for world-class glaucoma management.”
Dr. Bainnson received a Bachelors Degree with Honors from the University of Michigan in 1986. He is a graduate of SUNY Health Science Center in Brooklyn, (Downstate), and completed his residency at NY Medical college in 1994, where he was Chief Resident in his final year. Following residency, he completed a fellowship in Glaucoma and Anterior Segment at the Kellogg Eye Center at the University of Michigan. Dr. Bainnson is a Long Island native having grown up in Plainview. He now resides in Dix Hills with his wife and two children. He is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, The New York State Ophthalmology Society and the Suffolk County Ophthalmology Society.
“Ophthalmology provides me ample opportunities to enrich the lives of my patients,” said Dr. Bainnson. “Whether it is as simple as determining that first pair of perfect glasses, controlling their glaucoma, or even detecting a life-threatening condition, I know that I can make a measurable difference every day.”
North Shore Eye Care is Long Island’s most established full-service comprehensive eye care provider. This year they are celebrating 50 years of eye care excellence since Dr. Sidney Martin founded the practice in 1962.
