TLC Lifetime Commitment(SM)

What is the TLC Lifetime CommitmentSM?

While LASIK results are designed to last, nothing lasts forever! As a patient at Furlong Vision Correction, you are part of one of the largest networks of affiliated LASIK centers in North America and covered by one of the strongest commitments in the industry. Our TLC Lifetime CommitmentSM program is your assurance that if a re-treatment or enhancement is needed to maintain your vision results at any time in your life, you will receive it free of charge at Furlong Vision Correction or any other TLC center in North America.

Who is eligible?

As a patient at Furlong Vision Correction, you are automatically enrolled in this program at no additional cost. Almost all of our nearsighted, farsighted and astigmatic patients qualify for its benefits. Eligibility requires general good eye health and initial treatment at Furlong Vision Correction or another TLC center. Some additional requirements may apply. Re-treatment or enhancement is subject to the medical advisability of the procedure, and vision loss may not be due to disease, injury, or the development of presbyopia. Please ask us for complete details about this program when you come in for your appointment.

Why we recommend annual eye exams

Having LASIK reduces your dependence on glasses or contacts; it doesn't mean that you shouldn't have regular check-ups. Although we do not require annual eye exams, we stand with the American Academy of Ophthalmology and its recommendation that adults get regular exams to screen for eye diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration. Early detection of these problems, some of which have no symptoms, provides for more successful treatment options. In addition, regular eye exams allow us to establish the stability of your visual prescription over time and enable us to pinpoint your precise re-treatment or enhancement plan.

What sets us apart from the competition?

Following our lead, other LASIK clinics have started offering their own "lifetime" programs. But these programs will only last as long as the "lifetime" of the surgeon's practice and are only available at the one or two Northern California facilities where the surgeon operates. In contrast, the TLC Lifetime CommitmentSM is backed by a network of LASIK clinics that has been in business for 20 years. So, no matter where you go in North America, Furlong Vision Correction and TLC can work together to help you maintain your best possible vision for your lifetime.
