After receiving her medical degree, Dr. Larson completed an internship at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, Illinois where she received the "Most Outstanding Intern of the Year Award". She completed a residency in Ophthalmology at Cook County Hospital in Chicago where she served as Chief Resident. Dr. Larson is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and is a licensed physician and surgeon in the states of Vermont, Florida, New Hampshire and New York.

She is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the Vermont Ophthalmological Society, the International Society of Refractive Surgery, VISX Fellowship Program, and is a Certified LASIK Surgeon with Sightpath Medical and the past President of the Vermont Ophthalmological Society. Dr. Larson was recently featured in Vermont Business Magazine as the first LASIK surgeon in Vermont and the first surgeon ever to receive State of Vermont Approval, a Certificate of Need (CON) to open an Eye Only Outpatient Surgery Center which is licensed by both the state and the federal government. 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. In addition, Dr. Larson has trained at the world-renowned Hale Eye Institute (formerly Arizona Eye Institute) where the first LASIK procedure in North America was performed. Dr. Larson continues to attend advanced courses in new and upcoming techniques and procedures studying not only in the United States but in Europe. Dr. Larson's affiliation with Sightpath Medical also provides her direct access to their medical advisory board, which is made up of the most respected surgeons in Laser Vision Correction. Sightpath is the largest and most experienced provider of laser services in the world, offering individual surgeons technical support, education, and medical support. They have chosen Dr. Larson as one of the Top 5 Refractive Surgeons, 2006 - 2014 and was chosen as a Top 100 from 2001-2005. Dr. Larson is also a member of the Sightpath Advisory Group (SAG) and helps to advise the company on changes and developments in LASIK surgery. Dr. Larson has also been awarded the Outstanding Ophthalmologist of the Year on several occasions and has also received the Award for"Excellence in Refractive Surgery". Dr. Larson started a program over 10 years ago to provide free LASIK surgery to quadriplegics and has since day one offered significant discounts to active military, reservists and first responders. Vermont Eye Laser has also been a key supporter of Make-a-Wish® of Vermont, Camp Ta-Kum-Ta and Young Life. 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."

Experience was extremely pleasant. Everything I could think of to ask was answered. I felt very comfortable before, during and after the procedure. Results after 3 days have been great. Exactly as expected.

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,...more

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!
