In addition, she performs advanced, minimally invasive procedures and laser eye surgery for many types of eye disorders.

Dr. Larson is passionate about patient education. She encourages patients to make informed decisions as active participants in their care. She works with patients to find solutions or treatments that are best for them.

In addition to clinical care, Dr. Larson loves teaching medical students and residents. Her research includes finding improved training methods. She also studies clinical case reports and is sometimes involved with clinical trials to evaluate treatment options.

In her free time, Dr. Larson enjoys spending time outdoors with her family and visiting national parks. Their goal is to see every national park and visit at least two every year.

Vision is so crucially important for everything that we do. I love talking with patients after surgery who are just so happy and ecstatic that they can see better.
