Adam Copeland, KNBR Sports Talk Radio Host – The Leadoff Spot
I grew up in the East Bay in San Leandro as a Giants, 49ers and Warriors fan and played high school basketball and lettered for four years in baseball. While attending Chabot College, I called football and basketball games for the KCRH radio station. I then majored in broadcast journalism at San Francisco State University – all leading to hosting The Leadoff Spot weekdays from 5-6AM on KNBR, The Sports Leader. I also produce and join in as part of the Murph & Mac morning show from 6-10AM and I was very honored to be named to the Sportscasters Talent Agency of America’s “Top 30 Sportscasters Under 30” list.
Not wearing contacts or glasses in the KNBR studio during my talk show is just so much easier. Thank you, Dr. Furlong – I love my new vision!

Jeremy Collins, Three-Time Survivor Contestant, Winner Survivor: Cambodia, Firefighter
I started wearing glasses when I was playing Little League baseball and couldn’t see the pop flies I was supposed to catch. For my eighth-grade graduation present, my parents gave me contacts.
Having to deal with sand, dirt and mud while competing on Survivor was so tough, especially after scratching my cornea and having to wear only one contact for two days. After Survivor Cambodia, my tribe mate and great friend, Andrew Savage, told me about having his vision correction procedure with Dr. Michael Furlong in San Jose. Andrew knew I had terrible vision and even though I live on the East Coast, he recommended Dr. Furlong so highly that I decided it was the right thing to do – and it was!
Playing the Survivor Winners at War season without glasses or contact lenses
after my PRK procedure, was a game changer — and perfect vision is life changing! I would absolutely recommend Dr. Furlong to absolutely anyone!

Shea Salinas, San Jose Earthquakes Midfielder
What a difference it is to see the clock in the morning, watch TV and see my wife’s beautiful face without glasses or contacts. And what a difference it is to play the game without contacts. Life is good and way easier now. Having PRK was a great decision for me. Great doctor and great staff. Thanks, Dr. Furlong!
Dominic Kinnear – LA Galaxy Assistant Coach, Former San Jose Earthquakes Coach
I am really happy with my Furlong Vision Correction LASIK surgery. During training, I love the additional sharpness of my vision and the clarity that it has given me. This surgery has made my daily coaching and work life a lot easier. I appreciate the excellent work of Dr. Furlong and his staff.
Dominic had monovision – LASIK in one eye and PRK in the other eye. Here is more of his story for having eye surgery.
Lissa Kreisler – Former and Awesome KBAY Morning Personality
I had LASIK with Dr. Furlong over 10 years ago and I still love my vision. And my daughter, Christina, recently had LASIK too. Dr. Furlong has such a professional and caring staff and he meets with every patient during their free LASIK consultation and will answer any – and every – question.
Christina Kreisler Whelan – Kindergarten Teacher, Lissa Kreisler’s Daughter
As a kindergarten teacher, I have to keep my eyes on my students in the classroom and on the playground. Now I can ride my horse, snowboard and hike without the hassle of contacts or glasses. Not even 24 hours after my procedure, I drove myself to Furlong Vision Correction without glasses – first time in so many years!
Ashok Masilamani – Senior Software Engineer, Apple
Camping in areas without running water and sub-zero weather -where contact solution can freeze – makes it really hard to wear contacts safely. And glasses always limit your peripheral vision. In a place like Kilimanjaro where you want to be as immersed in the natural surroundings as possible, my new vision has helped me do just that.
Victoria Wahlgren – United States Army Sergeant and Mother of Five
Before LASIK, my vision was 20/400, meaning the big E was blurry. My brother-in-law kept telling me to get LASIK, but I just wasn’t ready yet although I disliked all of the hassle of ordering contacts and making sure I had glasses as backup. The final straw was when we were vacationing in Hawaii and I lost a contact and didn’t have a replacement. I had to wear my glasses -which was fine until we wanted to go snorkeling and swimming. I can’t swim or snorkel with glasses on. It was horrible because I could only see shadows and outlines of the sea creatures. I could have had a shark next to me and I would think it was a person swimming. So that was the last straw. I called my brother-in-law and asked him who he went to and he referred me to Dr. Furlong.
I called Dr. Furlong’s office and they got me in and scheduled for my surgery. My vision is now 20/20. I can see the fine details of my kids’ faces and I can see the ball when they are playing their sports. I am in the Army and am looking forward to going to the shooting range to see how high I score and how accurate my shot groups are now that I can see!
Arturo Alvarez, Professional Soccer Player and Former San Jose Earthquakes Midfielder
My eyesight is great now and I don’t have to bother with contacts anymore – I think it helps my performance on the field – thanks Dr. Furlong! Mi vista está perfecta y ya no tengo que lidiar con lentes de contacto – ¡creo que esto ayuda mi juego en el campo!
Jim Harbaugh, College Football and Former NFL Head Coach
Seriously, if you can’t see then you can’t coach, and that would put me out of a job. LASIK was a game changer for me! Now I can see the action and the players’ jersey numbers on the field I scored big with Dr. Furlong- and you will too. Now I know why he is a Bay Area vision correction expert.

Sierra Partridge, Santa Cruz Surfer
I had LASIK performed by Dr. Furlong of Furlong Vision Correction and I have to say it was the best experience and one of the best decisions I have ever made. Read about my experience in this blog posting.
Hailey Partridge, Santa Cruz Surfer
Like my identical twin, Sierra, I had been wearing contacts and glasses for over 10 years. After long days at the beach my contacts would feel glued to my eyes. My contacts also became a hassle when I needed to stay up late or wake up early to study for finals or to finish essays.
I love my new vision after LASIK. I can’t believe I didn’t do this sooner.

Jon Busch, Former San Jose Earthquakes Goalkeeper
I needed vision correction surgery and even though he’s the official LASIK surgeon of the Earthquakes, I did my own research. Great reviews talking about amazing results and an outstanding reputation made the decision easy and I am so happy with my 20/20 vision. It’s great to not wear glasses or contacts after all these years – especially on the field – what a difference. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Furlong to anyone.
Brooke Miller, Former Team TIBCO Women’s Pro Cycling, U.S.A. National Cycling Team
The results have been beyond any wild expectations! I can see at 20/15 and my night vision continues to blow me away! This is something well worth the investment – do it for you! Make your life better! And I can think of no place better than Dr. Furlong’s practice! Read more about Brooke’s LASIK experience.

Daniel Furlong, LASIK at Age 22 – He’s Loving Life!
I started wearing glasses when I was really young and because I never tried contacts, I wore my glasses all the time. I love to play soccer and other sports so wearing glasses definitely was an inconvenience. My uncle, Dr. Michael Furlong, is one of the best LASIK surgeons around and I finally made the decision to have the procedure. I also had astigmatism and was pretty excited to learn that LASIK would correct that as well.
It was definitely a great decision – the procedure went pretty quickly and was also painless. The best part was that I was out shooting hoops the next morning without my glasses and my eyesight is awesome!
My good friend, Ramin, shot this video of my consultation and procedure and he did a great job!
John Doyle, Former Olympian, San Jose Clash Defender and San Jose Earthquakes General Manager
Honestly, this is one of the best things I’ve done. I’ve seen a huge improvement in my vision. The ease with which I can differentiate players and clearly see jersey numbers is amazing. I didn’t really realize how poor my vision was until I could actually see! Thanks to Dr. Furlong!
JJ Koval, Former San Jose Earthquakes Midfielder
JJ Koval is stoked with his new vision after LASIK!
