Refractive Surgery

Refractive Surgery Consultation and Co-Management

Over the past several years, the public’s interest in LASIK surgery has increased tremendously for patients with nearsightedness, astigmatism, and farsightedness. For the past ten years we have been helping our patients achieve excellent vision with refractive surgery. The key for you in deciding on whether to proceed with refractive surgery is to have sufficient information.

Are you a good candidate or are you less than an ideal candidate? Would you be thrilled after having LASIK or would you regret the decision? We’ll give you the straight answer and if you are indeed a good candidate, we’ll make sure that you see one of the leading surgeons in the Bay Area.

You will see compelling advertising, which is meant to convince you that “because the laser does the surgery” skill and experience are not critically important to safely perform these procedures. Nothing could be further from the truth. The skill of the surgeon and surgical team has a great deal to do with the risk of post-surgical complications. We have been working for many years now with TLC Laser Eye Centers and Dr. Michael Furlong, offering the TLC Lifetime CommitmentSM   to excellent vision.  Dr Furlong and his surgical team is one of the most experienced and well respected in the country.

The surgery itself takes only a few minutes per eye. There is little or no discomfort involved. Many of our patients return to work the day following surgery. Pre-and postoperative examinations are done here at Plaza Lane Optometry. The surgery is performed at the surgical suite in San Jose.

If you or a loved one is contemplating undergoing laser eye surgery, we urge you to contact our office. Following a thorough evaluation and discussion, we will be happy to guide you and work as a team with the surgeon in order to ensure the best possible outcome.
