Practice History

InterMountain Eye Associates, P.C. was founded by ophthalmologist Steven Vale, M.D. in 1999, to provide comprehensive medical and surgical eye care to the residents of Northeastern Pennsylvania, including the Pocono Lakes Region, Susquehanna, Wyoming, Sullivan and Bradford Counties and northern Monroe County as well as cornea and external eye disease specialty services and eye surgery for Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Pittston, Hazelton, Nanticoke and Tunkhannock Pennsylvania.

Our first ophthalmology office in Northeastern Pennsylvania was in Honesdale, but soon moved to Carbondale, Pennsylvania, where Dr. Vale practiced ophthalmology from August of 1999 until the start of the COVID-19 epidemic.That office is now closed, although e-health visits are available for patients of that office that are unable to travel to other locations of InterMountain Eye.

2003 saw the opening of our second eye care location at the intersection of Moosic Street and Meadow Avenue in Scranton, PA. At that time, Dr. Vale also established his first LASIK laser vision correction center, Acuity Laser Eye & Vision Center, at the Scranton location.
In 2006, InterMountain Eye Associates expanded our medical and surgical eye care services to the Lehigh Valley, with our third office on Route 191 in Bethlehem Township, Northampton County, Pennsylvania.
