Eric Noll, OD MBA FAAO grew up in rural Pennsylvania very active in a multitude of activities and outdoors pursuits. He attended Pennsylvania State University and received a Bachelor's in Microbiology with minors in Chemistry and Biochemistry. While there, Dr. Noll participated in multiple club sports and organizations including wrestling, soccer, rugby, and an outdoors interest fraternity. After graduation he attended Pennsylvania College of Optometry for his doctorate degree while on scholarship from the Air Force. Upon graduation he was assigned to Minot AFB, ND for three years and thoroughly enjoyed his time both at work and outside of it while coaching wrestling, training dogs, and exploring the state's outdoors. Things worked out that his next assignment landed him in his dream state of Alaska in 2016 at Eielson AFB, AK where he continued his love of remote places. In 2019 he made the tough decision to leave active duty to pursue his goals of practice ownership and staying in Alaska. During this transition, Dr. Noll and Dr. Hagge began discussing the possibility of practice transition.
During the next 1.5 years he worked at a group practice in Fairbanks and has continued his military career as a Reservist at JB Elmendorf-Richardson where he sees patients once a month. In Mar 2022 he completed the purchase of Chugach Eye Clinic where his enthusiasm for providing quality care and pride in his work continues to flourish. In May 2021, he graduated from Johns Hopkins Carey Business school with an MBA in Healthcare Admin. Come by for a visit or to say hi, Dr Noll loves hearing about all things Alaska and people's experiences here while his adventures continue. We may suggest blocking out extra time to talk about the outdoor pursuits, especially sheep hunting.
