About Us

Dr. Ryan Veatch

Dr. Ryan Veatch is a native resident of Iowa City and a second generation optometrist. He grew up watching his father, Dr. Marlin Veatch skillfully meet patient vision and eye health needs. When he was younger, Ryan would occasionally go with his father, Marlin to the office in the evening or on weekends to watch him treat emergency eye injuries. As a result of the exposure to optometry, it was Ryan’s desire at a young age to pursue a career in Optometry.

Dr. Ryan Veatch graduated from City High in Iowa City and then attended Iowa State University, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree. Following graduation from ISU in 2001, Dr. Veatch married his wife Susie, moved to the Chicago suburbs, and attended the highly recognized Illinois College of Optometry (ICO) in downtown Chicago. ICO is the same school where his father Marlin Veatch graduated from some 30+ years prior.

After graduation from the Illinois College of Optometry, Dr. Ryan Veatch and his wife returned back to Iowa City where he started practicing at Complete Vision Care in Coralville and North Liberty until July 2010.

Susie works for her family business, Kinze Manufacturing, an agricultural equipment manufacturer located in Williamsburg, Iowa.

Ryan and Susie’s hobbies and interests include riding motorcycles, private aviation and farming. Dr. Veatch is an active pilot, holding an instrument rating for single and multi-engine aircraft.
