Tunkhannock optometrist Dr. Gerard HildebrandIn what is certainly a bittersweet moment for the Northeastern Eye Institute team, our long-time optometrist, Dr. Gerard Hildebrand, has announced his retirement. We’re grateful for the many years we’ve been able to work with such an outstanding doctor, and we will miss him moving forward. But we are also happy for him and hope he enjoys the adventures that lie ahead in retirement.

Dr. Hildebrand began working at Northeastern Eye Institute in 1996 after spending 16 years in private practice in the Tunkhannock area. Over the past 23 years, our patients have benefited from the outstanding levels of care Dr. Hildebrand provides, and he has been instrumental in helping Northeastern Eye Institute develop a reputation as one of the premier eye care facilities in the Scranton/Wilke-Barre area.
