North Shore Eye Care is proud to announce board certified eye surgeon, Lawrence M. Buono, MD, F.A.C.S. has been recognized as a ‘Top Doctor’ by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. 15th edition of Top Doctors: New York Metro Area, according to eye surgeon Jeffrey Martin, medical director of North Shore Eye Care and a 6th year recipient of the Castle Connolly ‘Top Doctor’ for the New York Metro Area.

“Over the past several years, several of our doctors at North Shore Eye Care have been fortunate to be voted as a ‘Top Doctor’ by Castle Connolly,” said Dr. Martin. “Very few practices in the state have earned more recognition than our doctors and we are extremely proud to now include Dr. Buono to this impressive list.”

Dr. Buono is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and treats all medical and surgical conditions of the eye. He specializes in ophthalmic surgery, including cataract, glaucoma and ophthalmic plastic surgery, and has a special interest in complex cataract surgery including lens exchange and sutured intraocular lenses. Dr. Buono has extensive experience with premium intraocular lenses including Tecnis® multifocal lens, Restor® multifocal lens, Crystalens® lens and Toric lenses.

Dr. Buono is currently an Assistant Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at the New York Institute of Technology, College of Osteopathic Medicine, where he teaches medical students and residents.

“The ‘Top Doctor’ award is something every physician is honored to receive because it confirms that our efforts to provide patients the personal and professional medical care patients deserve from their doctor have not gone unnoticed,” said Dr. Buono. “I am extremely proud be included in the inner circle of Metro area physicians who have earned this coveted award.”

To be considered for the ‘Castle Connolly Top Doctor’ award, physicians must be rated as the ‘Best in their Community’ by their peers. The ‘Top Doctor’ award is typically given to those physicians who exhibit extraordinary leadership, commitment to patients, medical expertise and experience in their specialty. It is quite rare for five physicians at a single practice to be named as Castle Connolly Top Doctors.

“All of the doctors and staff here at North Shore Eye Care embrace this recognition because it indicates a high standard of professionalism and a dedication to unsurpassed patient care,” said Dr. Buono.

Dr. Buono is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, North American Neuro-Ophthalmology Society (NANOS), American College of Surgeons, American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS), Medical Society of the State of New York, Suffolk County Medical Society, and the New York State Ophthalmologic Society.

Dr. Buono has authored numerous papers on neuro-ophthalmic disorders in the ophthalmic literature and serves as a reviewer for several of the major ophthalmic journals. His academic interests include ischemic optic neuropathy, giant cell arteritis, and pseudotumor cerebri. He also holds a patent for experimental work he did in the use of injectable dyes for the staining of the anterior lens capsule and vitreo-retinal interface, which aids cataract surgeons in performing safer surgery. Dr. Buono has lectured extensively in ophthalmology as both a clinical instructor at the American Academy of Ophthalmology and as an invited speaker. He actively participates at national ophthalmic meetings.
