Provider Bio down arrow

Dr. Jill Dillon took an early personal interest in the value of good vision. She was wearing glasses by the time she was in third grade and contacts by the eighth grade. She also was inspired by a family friend who served as a mentor.

After practicing for several years in Chicago, this native of Nekoosa joined Marshfield Clinic in 2000, returning to an area where she had known many people for a long time. She applies this concept of personal connections to her practice of examining, diagnosing and treating conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, retinal diseases, macular degeneration, hypertension and diabetes; and prescribing glasses, contact lenses, low vision rehabilitation and medications.

“My patients are more than just a number to me – I care about them on a personal level,” Dr. Dillon said. “I like getting to know them and learn about their lifestyles and workdays, which allows me to tailor care to their needs.”

Dr. Dillon earned her medical degree from the Illinois College of Optometry, Chicago. She completed her internship in optometry at Olympia Fields Osteopathic Hospital, Illinois. She serves as an adjunct assistant clinical professor at Pacific University College of Optometry, Forest Grove, Oregon, and at the University of Missouri in St. Louis College of Optometry; this work harmonizes with her passion for being a mentor for optometry school students.

She and her husband, Mike, have two sons. They enjoy many family activities, including golf and sporting events. She is a living kidney donor who started a non-profit organization, Central Wisconsin Gift of Life, with her recipient Sara.
