Specialized Eye Care In Montana

Glacier Eye Clinic now provides nearly all subspecialty eye care. With each new doctor and office move, the goal has been to serve the Flathead Valley and Northwest Montana with the best eye care possible.

Our staff also includes an excellent dedicated Optometry staff, now numbering five, providing comprehensive eye care, contact lens care, surgical comanagement, and emergency screening.

Glacier Eye Clinic has provided Outreach Clinics in Polson and Libby, and provided cataract surgery locally in those communities for over 20 years. Our latest outreach is to Columbia Falls with an Optometric Clinic at the Cedar Palace.

Serving Kalispell and our surrounding communities has been and always will be a special privilege. We will continue to strive to provide the highest level of medical care in a thoughtful and personal way. Thank you for being a part of our story!
