I have had a few previous Optometrists and not one had suggested Lasik to me until I saw Dr. Bailey. I was born with congenital cataracts and had undergone lens replacement surgery when I was twelve. I had no idea that I was even a candidate for Lasik surgery until I talked it over with Dr. Bailey. Sierra had undergone the surgery about a month earlier and was ecstatic with the results. That day I scheduled my appointment to have Lasik surgery with Dr. Furlong of Furlong Vision Correction.
Today, my vision is perfect at 20/20 and I couldn't be happier. I can't believe I didn't do this sooner! I no longer have to deal with the hassle of contacts or glasses. My eyes feel great because they are no longer irritated from constant contact wear. Dr. Furlong and his staff couldn't be nicer or more comforting. I was a little nervous before the procedure but it was over so quickly and Dr. Furlong's reassurance kept me calm the whole time. I would definitely recommend choosing Dr. Furlong to anyone who is considering Lasik surgery.

For the past 10 years I have worn glasses and contacts to be able to see. When I did sports like surfing, stand up paddling, yoga and running I had to wear contacts. It was always such an inconvenience to wear contacts out in the ocean because they would really irritate my eyes, fog up and even sometimes fall out. Just in the past year, wearing contacts became so bothersome to my eyes. Sometimes I would avoid going surfing just because I did not want to wear contacts knowing that my eyes would become irritated and feel painful.
Through my primary eye doctor, Dr. Bailey of Plager Vision and Optemetric Center, I found out about Lasik. I have even had a history of cataract surgery and thought I would not be a candidate, but Dr. Bailey assured me that Lasik would work very well for me.
I had Lasik just about a week ago 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. Dr. Furlong answered all my many questions, took his time making sure everything had gone well with the procedure, and was very comforting during the very short surgery.
I got to go surfing yesterday with my new vision and it was great! My eye sight feels even better than before and my eyes are so comfortable now. I really can't say enough wonderful things about the Lasik procedure by Dr. Furlong I would recommend it to everyone.
Thank you to everyone at Furlong Vision Correction and at Plager Vision and Optometric Center!

The Sacred Craft Trade Show in Santa Cruz was an amazing weekend, full of soul, surf boards, nostalgia, old friends and stoke. We were lucky enough to be able to help out our good friend and sponsor, Donna the owner and designer of Betty B jewelry. The Betty B booth was absolutely beautiful. It had a gorgeous layout of jewelry and photos by David Pu’u of the Betty B team on various trips around the world. To our delight many happy customers went away with gorgeous jewelry and a few customers even bought our designs, Delphinidae designed by Sierra and Compassion designed by Hailey.

Dolphins as animals, as a symbol and as an omen have been and always will be a part of my life and my family's lives.
My mom told this story to me, and it explained to me why dolphins have always been so important to me. My parents had always wanted children, but having children seemed unattainable, until one day when my mom finally found out that she was pregnant. They happened to be in Fiji at the time, and as they were leaving the island on the ferry, a pair of dolphins accompanied their boat jumping together in unison. My parents joked around that the two dolphins were an omen that they would have twins. They didn't think too much of that day until the day they found out that they were indeed having twins.When my parents first introduced me to the ocean, they reminded me to never be scared. I should never be scared because I was a visitor in the dolphin's and many other creature's oceans. If I wanted to be safe I needed to learn from the dolphins by never resisting the ocean and to always respect it. Now whenever I'm out in the ocean and I'm lucky enough to see dolphins I always feel safe and I know that I'm never alone.
