Dr. Furlong is a magician. I could not recommend the Refractive Lens Exchange surgery more – it is life changing. I don’t know how Dr. Furlong does it, but he’s brilliant…just brilliant.

I was severely near-sighted and had worn glasses since I was in the second grade. In fact, without my glasses or contacts, I was legally blind. My sight, or lack thereof, has always been a handicap to me. It sounds like a harsh characterization but it’s true and here’s why.

I love adventure whether it’s trail running, hiking, beach volleyball, whitewater rafting in the Grand Canyon or battling it out on Survivor: Pearl Islands and Survivor: Cambodia Second Chance. My vision had negatively impacted all of these incredible activities. This procedure didn’t greatly exceed my expectation – it blew it out of the water!

Here is his one-day post-surgery story. Andrew talks about how RLE has changed his life three weeks after his procedure.

20/15 vision and no more cataracts with Cataract Surgery with Advanced Lifestyle Lenses!

I’m writing this review to thank and commend Dr. Furlong and his professional and friendly staff. My vision is now restored to more perfect than I could have ever imagined possible. I now have 20/15 vision in both eyes. During the years leading up to my surgery I started wearing reading glasses. In my fifties the glasses got stronger. Then I noticed a blurring in my left eye. It was a cataract, and my glasses could not correct it. It was beginning to affect my lifestyle and quality of life. I enjoy a lifestyle of many outdoor sports and activities, one of which is rock and mountain climbing. The cataract was affecting my depth perception. I had to do something. I saw an ad by Dr. Furlong in the newspaper. I recalled seeing his ad a number of years before when Lasik eye surgery was just beginning. I chose Dr. Furlong based on his education, post-doctoral training, and surgical experience. Since my eyesight is priceless, I chose to have the ReStor multifocal IOL. My glasses are history and my eyesight is perfect. Thanks again Dr. Furlong. You and your staff are miracle workers!

Sally, 70 years young, is a Refractive Lens Exchange patient. She competed in the 2011 California Masters Women’s Crossfit Games in the 60 and older division as one of the top 20 performers following the preliminary worldwide competition! She has a 240-pound deadlift and a 185-pound back squat.  Sally’s vision started deteriorating at the age of 13 to the point where her vision was bad for both distance and close. ”Even though I am 70, I feel like this is a new beginning for me.” Here is her story of Refractive Lens Exchange eye surgery.

Christine Corbett – World Traveler for Work and Fun
I had been wearing glasses and hard contacts for over 15 years when I decided to seriously consider getting corrective eye surgery. I’m an active person and love to travel so wearing contacts (or glasses at night) was sometimes a challenge or hindrance. I also missed being able to just wake up in the morning and see. I was given Dr. Furlong’s name and after doing some research I made the initial appointment and went through the process. After much discussion and more research I decided to get Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) surgery since I wasn’t a candidate for LASIK. Since I have an astigmatism I’ll need to get a PRK touch-up but otherwise the results have been great! Dr. Furlong and his staff were great to work with and I love the fact that I can see when I wake up now and don’t have to carry around glasses/contacts while traveling!  You really do get the best care with Dr. Furlong and I’d highly recommend him and his staff to anyone looking to have ICL surgery!

As an auctioneer, my cataracts were a big problem. When Dr. Furlong told me about the premium, multi focal lenses I never looked back. No glasses and great near and far vision with Cataract Surgery with Advanced Lenses.
