Best Big Wave Surfer in the World and San Clemente Resident Greg Long Has LASIK Surgery with NVISION Laser Eye Centers


Newport Beach, Calif., April 4, 2012 — Professional surfer and San Clemente, Calif. resident Greg Long will be able to see the 40 foot waves he likes to ride, as one of the best big wave surfers in the world, more clearly now after undergoing LASIK surgery at NVISION Laser Eye Centers.

“After years of battling with poor eye sight in and out of the water, I finally decided to do something about it,” says Long. “Two quick consultations and one easy, painless, 10-minute operation and my vision is now 20/15 — better than perfect.”

Long’s surgeon was Dr. Tom Tooma, who has performed more than 100,000 LASIK procedures. Long’s surgery was done with the brand new Ziemer laser, which is the highest level of laser vision correction available today.

“This state-of-the art procedure combines the best vision results with the highest comfort and speed,” says Tooma. “Only minutes after the eye surgery, patients are amazed by the exceptional quality of their vision.
