My Wonderful Lasik Experience!

Before - I always having to wear glasses or contacts

After - No more contacts or glasses!! (Photo by David Pu'u)

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!
