During its 50 years of service to the residents of Long Island, North Shore Eye Care has always believed in giving back to our local communities. In light of the tremendous hardships suffered by Long Island residents during Hurricane Sandy, North Shore Eye Care is proud to donate a portion of all proceeds from now through the end of the year to Newsday Charities, said eye surgeon, Jeffrey Martin, MD, medical director of North Shore Eye Care.
“As our neighbors on Long Island begin the arduous process of rebuilding lives, houses and businesses in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, our team here at North Shore Eye Care remains dedicated to helping those affected by the storm and those whose lives are forever changed,” Dr. Martin said. By donating a portion of their proceeds to Newsday Charities, North Shore Eye Care hopes to play a small role in restoring hope to a large portion of the Long Island community.
In 2000, Newsday, partnered with the Robert R. McCormick Foundation to establish Newsday Charities, a McCormick Foundation Fund. Newsday Charities is committed to helping those less fortunate in our community improve their lives and become self-sufficient. With the generous support of donors and matching duns provided by the McCormick Foundation, grants are made to qualified nonprofit organizations with programs that concentrate on child abuse prevention and treatment; child and youth education; housing; and hunger.
North Shore Eye Care is proud to partner with Newsday Charities in this event. Portions of all of our proceeds between today and December 31st will continue to be donated to Newsday Charities. 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.
North Shore Eye Care maintains offices in Smithtown, Riverhead, Holbrook and Deer Park. They specialize in cataract care, LASIK laser vision correction, glaucoma management, diabetic eye disease, oculoplastics and retinal care.
