Julie Furlan, MD
“I became a vitreoretinal surgeon so that I could channel my interests and skill sets towards preserving and restoring sight for the people in my community.”
I believe that our vision is among the most important of our senses that enable us to navigate through our world and maintain our quality of life. It is a great privilege to work in an era of medicine where we have excellent treatments and surgeries available to help restore vision and protect against vision loss from what would otherwise be blinding diseases.
My interests include taking care of patients with a wide variety of retinal disorders, such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal tears, retinal detachments, macular holes, macular puckers, retinal venous or arterial occlusions, vitreous opacities, uveitis, and other conditions involving the central retina.
Why The Everett Clinic?
I am delighted to have the opportunity to join The Everett Clinic as their first vitreoretinal specialist and surgeon. Having grown up in this part of the country, it is a particular pleasure to take care of patients from my home state. Doing the right thing for our patients is our collective goal, and having the whole eye-care team working together sharing a common medical record allows us to provide the best ophthalmic care in a timely and efficient manner. This is especially important for retinal diseases, where prompt diagnosis and treatment can have a lasting impact on a patient's ability to see.
