Carolyn Kolb, O.D.
Dr. Carrie grew up in the country near Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin. She attended University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire and graduated with a bachelor of science degree in psychology and biology. She then completed her optometry degree in Chicago at Illinois College of Optometry. After graduation, she happily returned to Wisconsin where she worked and trained further in an ophthalmology practice outside of Milwaukee. She purchased Northwoods Family Eyecare with her husband Steven in 2019.
Dr. Carrie is passionate about helping patients understand the importance of eye health. She enjoys seeing patients of all ages, and manages many types of ocular disease including dry eye, diabetes, glaucoma and macular degeneration. Dr. Carrie views all her patients as family, and hopes you feel at home with her.
Dr. Carrie is a member of the Indianhead Optometric Society, the Wisconsin Optometric Association, and the American Optometric Association. She lives in Chippewa Falls with her husband and their three beloved dogs. In her free time you can find Carrie in the kitchen cooking or baking, rollerblading with her busy Brittany (spaniel), and visiting with friends and family.
Steven grew up in Saint Louis, MO. He attended University of Missouri at Rolla (now Missouri University of Science and Technology) and received a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. He moved to North Chicago in 2011 for an internship, and met Carrie just a few years later. He continued working for the same company for nine years in product design, specializing in power electronics. He plans to continue doing contract work in his specialty while he manages the office.
Steven enjoys classic cars (currently restoring a ’72 Camaro), his dogs, tinkering on electronics, hockey (Let’s Go Blues!), warm weather, Japanese culture, and good food.
