Dr. Ryan W. Nelson


My odyssey began as a patient of Iowa EyeCare in 1989 as a near-sighted 3rd grader from Wilkins Elementary.  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.  I also serve as the Clinical Director for our LASIK Center located at the Iowa EyeCare-Robins office location.  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 the fall I also love being out of the office.  When I am not working you can find me out on the water fishing for bass or on a peaceful hike in the woods.
