Our Professionals

Dr. Hal Hagge graduated from Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon, with a Bachelors in Science in 1979 and Doctor of Optometry in 1980. He has been a member of the American Optometric Association for 38 years and a long time member of the Chugiak/Eagle River Chamber of Commerce. A diehard fan of the Minnesota Vikings and Minnesotan born and raised, Dr. Hagge moved to Eagle River in 1982 to open the Chugach Eye Clinic and Optical.  Outside of the clinic, he enjoys hunting and yard work when the Vikings aren’t playing.

Alan, our Optician, is an all around expert. His knowledge and experience from helping with frame selection and the right lens for each individual to “major fixer upper” on almost impossibly injured frames, Alan excels. Alan began his career in 1983 when he moved to Alaska from Oregon. He found our clinic to be his forever home in 1996. His favorite loves are fishing and greenhouse gardening. Stop by if you need your glasses adjusted or repaired and see his favorite sign on the wall, “Born to Fish Forced to Work”. You might like to share your fishing “tails” and gardening finds with him.

Our front office staff, Andrea and Evie, are always happy to greet and assist our patients with the highest level of friendly customer service! Besides this outstanding customer service, their responsiblilites  include prescreening patients for examinations with Dr. Hagge, scheduling patients, contact lens teach and ordering, insurance verifications and billing  to name a few.
Jean, our office manager, oversees the business end of our practice. She came to Alaska with her husband in 1975.  She has loyally served our clinic for over 19 years and is backup for our front office staff as needed.

Our staff members are here to serve our loyal patients by answering any questions regarding eye care and vision needs.
