Providing complete LASIK and vision correction solutions in the Bay Area
Dr. Michael Furlong is a board-certified ophthalmologist specializing in bladeless Custom Wavefront LASIK, PRK, CK, Keratoconus, multifocal lens implants, Laser-Assisted Cataract surgery and Cataract surgery with Advanced Lifestyle Lenses. He also treats glaucoma, growths in and around the eye (moles, warts, stys, cysts, tags), minor eye injuries, abrasions, infections or allergies, dry or watery eyes, flashes and floaters, macular degeneration and eye problems related to diabetes.
Furlong Vision Correction employs the highest level of technology available, including the NASA approved combination of the VISX Advanced CustomVue Wavefront-Guided Laser and the IntraLase Femtosecond.
Dr. Furlong established Furlong Vision Correction in 1998 and has performed more than 37,000 refractive and small-incision Cataract surgeries to date.
Dr. Furlong is also a pioneer in a breakthrough treatment for Keratoconus, a progressive disease that causes the degeneration and weakening of the structure of the cornea – the clear tissue that covers the front of the eye. The treatment combines three procedures performed consecutively: Corneal Cross-Linking (CXL), Intacs and Conductive Keratoplasty. CXL is an exciting procedure, currently in the FDA approval process, that employs a biochemical reaction to strengthen the collagen fibers and reshape the cornea. Intacs and CK are surgeries on the surface of the eye designed to improve vision, reduce astigmatism and significantly improve both uncorrected vision and vision corrected with glasses or contacts.
