Dr. Larson has had extensive training in laser vision correction. Her primary training was conducted with an internationally recognized surgeon who has performed thousands of procedures, authored numerous articles and designed several LASIK devices. The value of performing procedures under the supervision of an experienced expert for an extended period of time is priceless, and the results speak for themselves. Since opening, over 17,000 procedures have been performed successfully in our state of the art laser center.

Most importantly Dr. Larson, Juli, is a wife of over 30 years, a mother of three boys and a positive member of the community. Juli loves the outdoors and is an avid skier, downhill, cross country and water, jogs and has completed several marathons and triathlons and has recently taken up sculling on Lake Champlain. While she was born in Minnesota from Scandinavian ancestry she has quickly become a Vermonter believing that it is one of the best places to live and work.

Just an awesome experience. Super friendly and knowledgeable. Great staff. No pressure. Only place to go. Happiness, pure and simple.
in Stowe, VT |
Dr. Larson was very personable, highly professional, explained all aspects of my cataract surgery and performed that surgery on both eyes in the very same manner. The result was virtually immediate, 20/20 vision, no surprises and I would highly recommend her to anyone as I have to my friends, though they may not be quite ready for surgery. She was excellent.
in Essex Junction, CT |
Amazing from start to finish! The staff here was beyond friendly. During the surgery Dr. Julie Larson coached me through the process and I felt completely at ease. I couldn't speak more highly of my experience here. Thank you again to Julie and the rest of the staff!
