Ophthalmologist Dr. Alexander Hatsis has performed tens of thousands of refractive surgical procedures since 1985, and uses his experience to train other surgeons at several area universities. At Hatsis Laser Vision—providing services on Long Island since 1995—Dr. Hatsis performs LASIK and PRK eye surgeries with the aid of Custom Vue procedures and WaveScan-based digital technology, which helps pinpoint individual imperfections that older methods could not detect. When correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, he relies on ultrathin IntraLase and excimer lasers to etch prescriptions into the cornea so that incoming light will focus on the retina. He also stores all patient records electronically so that computers can analyze data, helping to ensure safety.

The Oceanside Wellness Center contours away inches and tightens skin during quick, noninvasive Lipo-Light sessions. During the 30-minute treatments, LED light slips past the skin's outer defenses, targeting the adipose tissue that lurks just beneath.

Microcurrent facial treatments help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin smoother and softer. Customers may notice visible firming and contouring with less puffiness. This warm and inviting center also offers additional therapeutic services.

The more than a dozen brick-and-mortar locations that make up Ultimate Champions Taekwondo Association share not only a style of combat, but a teaching philosophy as well. Tracing the lineage of their combative art back to Grandmaster Sang K. Oh, the instructors adhere to his teachings, exemplified by the quote, "The person who can defeat others with flashy techniques but is without love toward his fellow man will in the end defeat himself." Students use the physical empowerment of mastering jumps, kicks, and weapons to arm themselves with discipline, confidence, concentration, self-respect, and courtesy for others.
