Lisa K. Feulner is a board-certified ophthalmologist with a well-respected and highly-skilled practice, Advanced Eye Care & Aesthetics in Bel Air, Md. While her list of medically related credentials is as long as your arm, what is most impressive about this woman is her dedication to her patients, family and the Harford County community.
As a young child, Lisa Feulner decided she wanted to work in the field of medicine. In sixth grade she became fascinated with how memory is stored, retained and retrieved. It was then she made a decision to study the brain. Dr. Feulner says, “While my Ph.D. is in molecular neuroscience and my thesis was on Alzheimer’s disease, when I finished medical school, I realized that I loved surgery, but did not want to become a neurosurgeon. It was then that I realized that Ophthalmology was the perfect fit for me.”
Dr. Feulner explains, “Almost everything that happens to the body can be detected through the eye. It encompasses everything I learned about general medicine, and internal medicine, while incorporating my love of surgery. I work with cutting edge technology and still see patients on a day-to-day basis. I enjoy providing exceptional quality of care to people of all ages. Through the eyes I can detect diabetes, high-blood pressure, carotid artery disease, irregular heartbeat, certain types of cancers and many systemic diseases. Multiple sclerosis, for example, presents visually with symptoms.”
A Harford County resident, Dr. Feulner lives in Churchville with her husband Greg, an attorney, and two children, Leah, 17, and Aidan, 9. Like most mothers of a graduating senior, some of her free time is dedicated to helping her daughter determine where she will head to college. Following in her mother’s footsteps, Leah is also interested in the field of science and medicine.

Like at home, Dr. Feulner is a role model to those who work for her. Advanced Eye Care is an all-woman practice including herself, two optometrists, an aesthetics provider, and over a dozen technical, optical and administrative employees.
In addition to her thriving Ophthalmologic practice, Dr. Feulner offers a bevy of aesthetic services including BOTOX Cosmetic, Juvéderm, Radiesse, Obagi, Latisse, upper and lower eyelid lifts and ReFirme skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and laser skin rejuvenation. Dr. Feulner comes from an artistic family – her dad, now deceased, was an architect, and her brother is a graphic artist. Even her son Aidan, 9, is a painter-in-training. Aesthetics are her artistic outlet. “It brings me great joy to help women feel better about how they look,” Dr. Feulner says.
People who know Dr. Feulner know her passion extends beyond her patients and practice. With time and treasure, she supports many organizations and charities, but her heart is with Boys and Girls Clubs of Harford County, for which she serves as a member of its Board of Directors. Referencing her father’s architectural career, she says, “My father’s legacy was that he left the world amazing buildings – hospitals, churches and universities. The world is enhanced by what he did. I strive to do the same through my work with the Boys and Girls Club. I have had the pleasure to meet some incredible kids who without the added support system found within the structure of the club might not be able to reach their full potential. Working with the Boys and Girls Club of Harford County is a chance to change the world, one child at a time. Building great kids, builds great futures.”
In November 2013, Advanced Eye Care & Aesthetics celebrated its 10th anniversary. Like Dr. Feulner herself, the Advanced Eye Care team is dedicated to providing patients with the highest level of comprehensive eye care in a professional, compassionate and caring manner. “At Advanced Eye Care, we know that eye health is an indicator to overall health. Our team approach allows us to provide comprehensive and personalized eye care to our patients, both young and old,” says Dr. Feulner. “By operating a full-service eye care health facility that specializes in the detection and treatment of eye disorders, it’s been a pleasure to take care of patients since 2003. I look forward to continuing to do so for many years to come.” I95
