I was really scared to have this done and have been putting it off for years. Dr. Larson and her team were amazing! They were really calm and explained each part of the process as we went to it. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you Dr Larson and team!!!
I've wanted LASIK for years, but as glaucoma runs deep in my family, I was deeply discouraged from y childhood eye doctor and my dad from looking into it. As I also didn't want to put my hands into some factory-farm type surgeon revolving door inexpensive LASIK clinic where my eyes, the most precious thing I own, would be at the mercy of the doctor, who may or may not truly care about my situation. So I kept putting it off, envious of everyone who wakes up able to see without searching for their glasses. I chose Dr. Juli Larson, who has done over 15,000 LASIK surgeries, several of my local friends had also had theirs done through her. I would have to wear my glasses for at least 14 days prior to consult (which to me, is a fate worse than death), but I did it diligently.I arrived on Thursday for my consult and tests, knowing that if I was a candidate, I could have surgery the next morning. I was a little nervous and hoping I would not be told I was not a candidate, but knew she only turns away candidates that truly cannot get it, so I felt I was In good hands. Two hours of extensive testing on my vision, optic nerve analysis, glaucoma check, I finally met with Dr. Larson. I found her to be very kind and warm, taking a lot of time to answer my questions and concerns. She admitted I was at the border of eligibility, but she felt she could help me, with the latest technology, the Bladeless iDesign Wavefront Guided LASIK. This technology does a fingerprint type calculation of your eye to do the most personally tailored custom LASIK. She made sure I understood all the potential complications, too. I said that I understood and that I still wanted to move forward. Dr Larson knew I'd had an SLT (to reduce eye pressures) five years before, so with my permission, she reached out to that surgeon to make sure she had that information as well and would call me once she had read through the scans, his notes, and those of my current ophthalmologist.I met with the young woman who would explain pre-op procedures and 0%, 24-month financing options through one of two lenders, in the event I needed that. I went home feeling excited. Dr Larson called me later that afternoon to let me know everything looked good and I had no changes since the SLT. She made sure that up until the morning of the surgery, I could change my mind and opt out. I found this very reassuring and added a layer of trust to my interactions with her and her expertise. The next morning, I arrived a little anxious but mostly excited. I met with her again and she explained the procedure. Within minutes, I was in the OR and she was so helpful and encouraging the entire time. 10 minutes later, I could already see better than I'd had in over 30 years.I went home and rested as required, plus did the drops as required. By mid-evening I could pretty much see everything, was texting and watching tv. It does feel while healing like you have a little speck of sand in your eye, but the drops help. This morning, she checked my corneal flap, which is healing nicely and also my vision-it's 20/20. There's a to-be-expected slight haze that will in time go away, but I was able to drive myself to the appointment and although my right eye itches a little bit, I feel great and worth every penny. I highly recommend her and am so grateful to her expertise. As doctors and surgeons go, she is kind, patient and very thorough. Her bedside manner is impeccable. The facility itself is state-of-the-art and they are following COVID-19 guidelines. As part of my extended plan, I'll see her in 7 days, in 4 weeks, in three months, in six months, in nine months and at the 12-month mark. I am confident that we will continue to see improvement and I know that if any complications were to occur, I am in the right hands. She also does cataract surgeries, SLTs-she is my go to eye surgeon for my potential future needs.

Both Julie and the entire staff are truly outstanding in every aspect. I was simply amazed by the process and procedure.
Dr Juli Larson is exceptional in her personal care and concern for her patients. I remember taking both my parents to her for their eye care. My husband and I now live in Morrisville, VT, and when my eye doctor suggested cataract surgery, he also suggested Dr Larson. The wait time to be seen was minimal, the entire staff caring and helpful. I would certainly recommend Dr Juli Larson and her staff.
