Eye Doctors Converge on Long Island for 7th Semi-Annual Optometric Symposium Hosted by North Shore Eye Care
Advances in laser cataract surgery, glaucoma management, corneal diseases and surgical treatment for eyelid disorders will be shared by eye surgeons of North Shore Eye Care at their 7th Semi-Annual Continuing Education Symposium for Optometrists, according to leading eye surgeon, Jeffrey Martin, MD, medical director at North Shore Eye Care and emcee/lecturer of this annual continuing education program.
Held at the Hyatt Regency Long Island on Sunday, June 1st, this year’s optometric symposium will provide attending primary eye care doctors the opportunity to learn the latest breakthroughs in surgical, tertiary and medical eye care for the most common eye diseases and condition. Since its inception, this joint meeting between the optometric community and leaders in ophthalmology has grown to become one of the premier medical educational events held on Long Island.
In addition to eye surgeons Jeffrey Martin, MD; Faye Knoll, MD; and John Mauro, DO, other featured guest speakers include Lawrence Buono, MD; Samuel Baharestani, MD; and Andrew Bainnson, MD. “Our line-up of surgeons is outstanding this year,” said Dr. Martin. “Our attending optometrists will have the opportunity to receive continuing education credit in the areas of Normal Tension Glaucoma, Eyelid and Brow Ptosis, Non-Arteritic Ischemic Optic Neuropathy, Anterior Segment Disease, Laser Cataract Surgery and Corneal Emergencies.”
“The entire medical staff at North Shore Eye Care is proud of the recognition and growth our continuing education symposium continues to receive,” Dr. Martin. “We’ve worked very hard to nurture our close working relationship with the optometric community across Long Island and look forward to providing them the Continuing Education medical credit they need on an annual basis.”
Attending optometrists will learn how to interpret various eye conditions, see actual case studies of infectious eye conditions, receive updates on managing difficult cataract and glaucoma cases and learn the most recent updates on cataract surgery and laser surgery being performed around the world.
“Our goal is to not simply help them fulfill their required continuing education credits, but to help enhance the patient experience and the quality of care between secondary surgical ophthalmic care providers and primary eye care providers,” said Dr. Martin. “Our efforts are helping ensure that Long Island residents continue receiving the highest quality eye care available today and giving them access to the same advanced eye care found in major medical centers.”
