Julius Shulman

Julius Shulman, MD, founder of Eastside Eye Associates, has devoted his 45 years in ophthalmology to providing his patients with the highest level of eye care possible. From the simple task of prescribing eyeglasses to the most technologically advanced laser-assisted cataract surgery, Dr. Shulman’s clinical and surgical skills fuel the engine of this modern, patient driven ophthalmology practice.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Dr. Shulman attended Brooklyn College and SUNY Downstate Medical School. After finishing his ophthalmology residency in 1975 at Mt Sinai Hospital, out of Brooklyn but happily still in New York, Dr. Shulman started what was to become one of the busiest and most well recognized ophthalmology practices in New York City – Eastside Eye Associates.

Over the course of his nearly 45 years in practice, Dr. Shulman has had several major accomplishments, devoted patient care notwithstanding. He pioneered the use of intraocular lenses during cataract surgery at Mt Sinai Hospital, as well as two forms of sterile technique that are now standard practice during thousands of eye operations city-wide.
He has been on 10 medical missions, three to India, and seven to Peru, helping to bring sight to those blind and less fortunate. He has instructed other physicians in the cataract techniques necessary to perform successful surgery in third world countries and looks forward to upcoming missions.

His two books, the first, “CATARACTS: THE COMPLETE GUIDE – FROM DIAGNOSIS TO RECOVERY-FOR PATIENTS AND FAMILIES”, originally published by Simon and Schuster, and the second, “NO MORE GLASSES-THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO LASER VISION CORRECTION” published by iUniverse, were the first books in their field to help patients make a truly informed decision on cataract and laser vision surgery.

Dr. Shulman is also proud to be one of about 2000 runners in 1976 to have completed the first five borough New York City marathon, and has since run and finished 9 more.
In his spare time, when not running, Dr. Shulman likes to play golf, listen to music and attempt to be a home cook.

He is Board Certified by the American Academy of Ophthalmology and was re-Certified 10 years ago.
