Dr. Michael Furlong is a board-certified ophthalmologist and fellowship trained cataract surgeon with a specialization in small incision cataract, cataract surgery with advanced lenses and laser refractive surgeries. Dr. Furlong studied under world-renowned cataract and refractive surgery leader, Dr. Howard Gimbel and has taught ophthalmology techniques worldwide.
Dr. Furlong established Furlong Vision Correction in 1998 and has performed more than 3,500 small-incision cataract surgeries to date.
Dr. Furlong performs advanced small-incision cataract surgery and also provides his patients with the option to choose advanced intraocular lens implants (IOLs), allowing patients to eliminate the need for glasses for most daily activities. Tecnis and ReSTOR lenses correct vision for both distance and near activities. Crystalens accommodating lenses help patients focus on objects at various distances and Toric lenses are used to correct astigmatism. During the procedure, Dr. Furlong makes a tiny incision in the eye to extract the clouded lens and implant an IOL.
In addition to cataract surgery, Dr. Furlong offers refractive lens exchange for patients with presbyopia who wish to correct near and distance vision again allowing patients to achieve clear vision while reducing their dependence on glasses and contact lenses.
With an expert surgeon, state-of-the-art facility and the latest FDA-approved equipment, patients know they are in good hands.
