The Practice

Eye Clinic North excels at full-service family-style eye care from routine to complex. Our doctors are residency trained and double board certified in Optometry (General and Medical) and use the latest diagnostic technology to treat and manage diseases of the eye including dry eye, diabetes, macular degeneration, and glaucoma. Our knowledgeable staff is the heart of our business. When you’re here, you’re part of the family.

Our offices are located in Virginia, est. 1930, Hibbing, est. 1919, and Duluth, est. 1949.

The Virginia practice was founded in 1930 by Dr. MacDonald, who was joined by Dr. Les Sipola in 1952, followed by his son Dr. Don Sipola in 1973 and his son Dr. Matt Sipola and his wife Dr. Hannah Sipola in 2014.

The Hibbing practice was founded in 1919 by Dr. William Larson, Sr. He was joined by his son, Dr. Larson, Jr. in 1948. Dr. Scott Mescher joined the practice in 1977, followed by Dr. Matt and Dr. Hannah Sipola in 2016.

The Duluth practice was founded in 1949 by Dr. Harry Dahl, followed by Dr. Don Sipola in 1973 and Dr. Matt and Dr. Hannah Sipola in 2014.

Dr. Matt and Dr. Hannah Sipola represent fourth generation Optometrists to staff the longest continuously operating eye clinic in Northern Minnesota. We strive to continue our legacy of excellence in eyecare and have cared for multiple generations of Iron Rangers, as though they were part of our extended family.
