This paper studies, in dimensions greater than two, stationary diffusion processes in random environment which are small, isotropic perturbations of Brownian motion satisfying a finite range dependence. Such processes were first considered in the continuous setting by Sznitman and Zeitouni [20]. Building upon their work, it is shown by analyzing the associated elliptic boundary-value problem that, almost surely, the smoothed exit law of the diffusion from large domains converges, as the domain's scale approaches infinity, to that of a Brownian motion. Furthermore, an algebraic rate for the convergence is established in terms of the modulus of the boundary condition.
