Larry Fluss, O.D. grew up in northern California. He graduated with honors receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of California Berkeley. He worked as a researcher in the Molecular Biology department at UC Berkeley and UC Santa Cruz for many years publishing several papers. He grew tired of working with viruses, bacteria, and DNA as they weren’t able to carry on a conversation. He wished to work with people. In 1992 he completed his Doctor of Optometry degree from the University of California Berkeley School of Optometry. He was a member of Beta Sigma Kappa, an Optometric Honor Society and has a paper published concerning the disinfection of contact lenses with ultraviolet light.
Soon after graduating Dr. Fluss, his wife, and two young daughters immigrated to a rural part of British Columbia Canada where they spent a year building their home and vegetable gardens.
Dr. Fluss spent the last 17 years working in a full service Optometric office in Creston B.C. Canada. He has experience in dealing with all aspects of Optometric eye care. Dr. Fluss spent 8 years as a council member and treasurer of the British Columbia Optometric Association. He has traveled to Samoa and Guatemala taking his teenage daughters with him providing eye care and glasses to those who can’t afford or don’t have access to the care. It was an amazing experience and an eyeopener especially for his daughters to see the differences between a third world and a first world country.
In 2012 Dr. Fluss made the move down to Boulder with his wife so she could attend Naropa University. He now considers Boulder his home and very much enjoys the outdoor activities available here and the sunshine. He also really enjoys the interesting and diverse people he meets at Altitude Optometry.
He looks forward to meeting and helping you with your eye care needs
