Dr Furlan is terrific! Fixed my daughter's weak eye muscles when she was 5-6. Now her eyesight is getting better and she needs weaker glasses, maybe even not needing glasses in a few years. He cares about the kids, is warm, and an excellent eye doctor.

My child started seeing him at age 18 mos when she was Diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA). We were shocked by this diagnosis & concerned for her sight. She’s also non-verbal having just received an Autism diagnosis too. We started seeing him very often in Brooklyn but moved to NJ & were elated he had 3 locations (Woodbridge, Wayne, Westfield). Her eyes are perfect & she’s now 15, still seeing him. He’s the nicest, soft-spoken, easy going, kindest most patient Dr you’ll ever meet.

Dr. Louis as my daughter calls him is excellent. He is so calm and has been great with my daughter since the beginning when she wasn't such a happy patient. We went through every option before finally having to go for surgery. His calm and caring nature made my husband, daughter and I feel as comfortable as possible. We all give Dr. Furlan the highest recommendation.

Dr Furlan is an amazing doctor. My 8 year old daughter has been seeing him since she was 4. He preformed surgery and sees her yearly for follow up checkups. He is professional, clean and always extremely gentle and kind to her. I recommend him to all my friends and they are never disappointed!
