Medical Insurance Plans

Medical Insurance Plans are used when the patient is being seen for a medical problem with the eye.  These plans cover the health portion of an eye exam if there is a medical concern but they do not cover the refraction, glasses or contacts.

Please note, most medical insurance providers are not the direct vision insurance provider.  They often farm the vision coverage out to a company that specializes in vision benefits.  If your medical insurance card says vision on it, please lookup who your vision provider is to see if we take that vision insurance.  If you cannot find that information, please feel free to call our office and we can assist you.

My son and I have been with you for years. Friendly accommodating service. You always go the extra mile to take care of us. The Dr.s and staff always make our visit personable, friendly. I carry your business cards to hand out.

Marcee M.

I love everything about this place. Great Doctors and great staff. I have never had a problem in over fifteen years I think.

Daniel T.

Always professional and friendly. And if you need stuff like adjusting glasses or more lens cleaner fluid, they do it in minutes for free.

Stu B.

I highly recommend Tatum Eyecare. My entire experience from my exam with Dr. Felton, whose both courteous and professional and selecting my glasses with Crystal, was superb! Crystal, was knowledgeable, informative and professional. I was in a frenzy to get new glasses, and find the right place to accommodate me since moving to Arizona. Crystal, from our initial conversation on the phone, made the entire process quite seamless. I will certainly come back for my next pair of designer glasses! Additionally, they offer a decent selection of designer frames as well!! Many thanks for a pleasurable experience!

Cassandra R.

This is my second year of exams with Dr. Fuller. He has a great attitude and makes the exam experience very comfortable. I’ve had exams with many other doctors, and most of the time I feel as if I’m being hurried along and that my concerns or questions are not being addressed. This is not the case with Dr. Fuller, he’s attentive and takes the time to explain things and address my questions. In addition, the office staff is great as well, patient, helpful and understanding. As long as I live in the greater Phoenix area and he is in practice I will be returning to Dr. Fuller.

Justin S.

Best experience ever. Really thorough doctor, really professional and kind staff. I’ll never go anywhere else. I’m already recommending them to friends.  

Cheryl H.

Started coming here 3 years ago; love this office. Staff and Dr are always so kind. Never have to wait and staff is fun and helpful when picking out new frames. I’ve already recommended them to my family. Really glad I chose them as my eye care office!

Jaclyn D.

I had an amazing experience here! I received exceptional service from the optician Lily, who helped me find the right glasses that fit my big head. She also was very knowledgeable about their products, and made great recommendations for my high prescription. I appreciate all of her hard work and will definitely be back again next year. Also a very clean environment!

Samuel F.

Great doctor. Great staff. I travel from the far west valley to see Dr. Fuller.

Dr. Fuller grew up in Issaquah, Washington and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Washington State University. He decided to ditch the calculator and trade it in for a phoropter and slit lamp. He headed east to The Ohio State University where he received his Optometry degree in 1998. Go Bucks! Not wanting to return to the gray of Washington, after graduation, he headed southwest to sunny Arizona. Shortly thereafter he met Dr. McPhelan and they partnered up at their original location, Optical Illusions. With the success of the first location, the two doctors opened up their north location, Optique at the Ridge. After many years of operating the two locations, it was time for an upgrade. In 2016 they merged the two locations into their larger and current location, Tatum Eyecare! When not at the office, Dr. Fuller enjoys spending his free time with his amazing wife and two boys.
