Dr. Ryan W. Nelson


My experience at Iowa EyeCare began in 1989, as a near-sighted 3rd grader from Wilkins Elementary who needed glasses to see the board from the back of the classroom.  I always loved coming into the Marion office because of the nice people, clean building and the candy at the front desk!  I thought, when I grow up… I want to be an eye doctor.

Sure enough, in 2008 I graduated from Southern College of Optometry and I started seeing patients back home at Iowa EyeCare.  Come see me for anything, be it glasses and contact lenses or glaucoma and cataracts.  My professional passion, though, is helping to manage the business side of our great company.  We’ve got a terrific team and we all have a lot of fun!

I sincerely enjoy being in the office, but during the summer and in the fall I  love being outdoors.  When I am not working you can find me in the woods on a peaceful hike or out on the water fishing.
