Smithtwown, NY (PRWEB) June 24, 2014
To help kick off the Summer LASIK season on Long Island, North Shore Eye Care is hosting a ‘Live’ LASIK event on Tuesday, June 24th at 7 pm at their Smithtown office. This event is open to the public and attendees will witness a live LASIK procedure being performed by eye surgeon, John Mauro, D.O.
“For people who think they may be too nervous to have LASIK – or have ever wondered what it’s like to have LASIK – our live LASIK event is something they don’t want to miss,” said Dr. Mauro. “Attendees will be able to speak with our LASIK patient immediately before and after the procedure,” he said, 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 at North Shore Eye Care in Smithtown at 260 Middle County Road, Suite 201. It features VISX CustomVue Excimer laser technology and the Intralase Femtosecond laser. 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 be performing the live procedure at approximately 7:15 pm. For people interested in attending, please call North Shore Eye Care at 631-265- 8780.
