Comprehensive Eye Health Services

Dr. Michael Furlong is a Bay Area expert in vision correction procedures using the most advanced technology for Bladeless LASIK, PRK, Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery with Advanced Lifestyle Lenses and Refractive Lens Exchange Surgery: Intraocular Lens (IOLs) and Implantable Contact Lens (ICLs). At Furlong Vision Correction, we also focus on maintaining eye health through regular eye exams and treating eye conditions and diseases before they become sight threatening.

Regular eye exams are important.Why do I need an eye exam?
Many people – even those who are health-conscious – don’t always think about having a regular eye exam. But routine eye exams, like routine dental check-ups, can help prevent long-lasting health problems. In many cases, the beginning of vision problems is not always accompanied by obvious symptoms. By the time symptoms appear, irreversible damage may have been done.

I’m not at risk for eye disease. How often should I have a routine exam?
The American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Optometric Association recommend that adults between the ages of 18 and 60 years with no signs of vision loss or risk factors for eye disease have a routine eye exam every two years. Adults ages 61 and older are advised to have an eye exam annually.

Eye disease runs in my family. How often should I have an eye exam?
Annual eye exams are recommended for patients of any age with conditions that put them at risk for eye disease, including diabetes, high blood pressure or a family history of eye disease such as glaucoma or macular degeneration.

Treat eye conditions earlyWhat if I have an eye condition that needs monitoring or treatment?
The doctors at Furlong Vision Correction not only offer comprehensive annual eye examinations, but are also qualified to treat a full range of eye conditions and diseases – from relatively simple conditions like dry eye to sight threatening diseases like glaucoma.

Will my medical insurance pay for my exam?
Medical insurance plans will pay for eye exams that are necessary to monitor or treat medical conditions or diseases of the eye. These types of exams are the same as other medical expenses and subject to the same deductible and co-pay requirements. For these exams, we can bill Medicare and most PPO plans. A routine eye exam for healthy eyes is not covered by medical insurance (unless a medical condition is discovered during the exam) but should still be part of your preventive health regimen to ensure long-lasting eye health.

Gotta pay my overdue Yelp gratitude here. Furlong has an all-star staff. Carol specifically is a wonderful human being and professional. They're prepared for every possible scenario. My story varies slightly from others in that I did experience bad halos/glares for roughly 2 weeks following surgery (which is...

Dr. Furlong was a recommendation from my optometrist. My first visit was fast and easy. My optometrist had already done my dilation so they just needed to take measurements and double check that I was a candidate. Everyone was very professional and friendly. I was nervous about everything but my patient counselor...

I recently had LASIK done with Dr. Furlong and it was an amazing experience. I wanted to have LASIK so that I could wake up first thing in the morning and not worry about contacts or glasses! As an optometrist myself I knew the ins and outs a little bit more but everything was on point! Their waiting room is always...

This has easily been one of the best decisions I have made in my life. After having glasses for most of my life, it's crazy to think I can now wake up and see clearly. I was referred here by my optometrist, Dr. Toy, in early 2016. I came for the free consultation where Dr. Furlong and his staff determined that I...

Five stars.  Why?  I was suffering from rapidly progressing cataracts at the relatively young age of 37.  I was forced to take time off of work until the first surgery was complete.  My left eye had deteriorated from 20/300 in January to "hand motion (I could see light differences and movement only)" the day...

Just got my lasik surgery done last week by Dr. Furlong, and so far so good! I got referred to Dr. Furlong from my optometrist. A little pricier than competitors, but it's YOUR EYES, not the situation to be looking for a discount. They take a lot of time to make sure that you're comfortable and informed, and the...

One of the best decisions I've made in my life! It took me about 2 years before I actually made a decision and not to sound super corny or anything... I should've done it sooner! It's definitely easier saying that knowing my LASIK surgery went well so I completely understand anyone's fear or hesitation with...

It was a smooth experience.  She had one eye done first, followed by the second eye a few weeks later.  She saw Dr. Furlong for consultation in June.  He gave her a detailed exam and performed various scans.  She decided to go with femto laser...

Dr.Furlong did PRK for my insanely farsighted eyes in September 2016. I am now seeing 20/20!!! I couldn't be happier with the results. I also appreciated that he was honest when he didn't recommend PRK for my thin corneas... better safe than sorry! Thanks again, best money I could have spent on myself.

Super thorough and professional.  The staff accurately explained exactly what to expect and answered all my questions in an even-handed way with lots of detail about risks and benefits.

Theres no guarantee of results, but turns out my vision was corrected to better than 20/20 and I'm very happy with the results.
