The reason Dr. Ryan Veatch and Dr. Marlin Veatch became optometrists was to personally participate in patients’ lives and help people enjoy the lifelong vision benefits of optimum eye health. It is for this reason that the doctors and staff at Blink Vision will treat you as a member of our family! What does that mean?
Dr. Ryan Veatch is a native resident of Iowa City and a second generation optometrist. Dr. Veatch received his Bachelor of Science degree from Iowa State University and his Doctorate of Optometry degree from Illinois College of Optometry. He has many memories of observing his father, Dr. Marlin Veatch, help people with their eye emergencies, after hours, as a young boy. As a result of his exposure to Optometry and his desire to serve others, Dr. Veatch pursued a career in Optometry.
From 2010 to 2020, Dr. Veatch had the honor of working with his father, Dr. Marlin Veatch and brought him out of retirement to join Blink Vision. Dr. Marlin enjoyed those extra ten years of his career, continuing to serve many patients he knew for decades. Dr. Marlin Veatch fully retired in the spring of 2020.
Dr. Ryan Veatch is happily married to his wife, Susie, since 2001 and they live in Johnson County with their two young girls.
Outside of the office, Dr. Ryan Veatch enjoys spending time with family, actively farming, riding ATV’s & motorcycles, and is a commercially rated jet and helicopter pilot. He volunteers with the local Lions Club and is involved in his local church.

Following graduation from ICO in 1971, he and Marcia moved to Iowa City where he joined the practice of Eye Associates of Iowa City. In August 2010, Dr. Marlin Veatch was invited by his son, Dr. Ryan Veatch, to join him part-time in the establishing of his new office, Blink Vision by Veatch. He retired from the practice in 2020.
