Tatum Eyecare Welcomes Dr. Felten!

October 1st, 2017

Meet Family Eye Doctor Ryan Felten!


In December of 2015, Tatum EyeCare welcomed an amazing family eye doctor named Dr. Ryan Felten into our close-knit practice. For several years thereafter, Dr. Felten worked with us as a family eye doctor a couple of days each week.

However, in November 2017 Dr. Felten joined us full-time and we have been so excited to have him here in that capacity ever since! Let’s take a moment to get to know our new, but equally valued family eye doctor, Dr. Ryan Felten!

A Local Optometrist at Heart


Dr. Felten is truly a local optometrist at heart…. because he is also an Arizona native! He was raised in North Phoenix, not very far from our office, where most of his family still resides and where he now lives once again. In fact, he attended high school just down the street at Paradise Valley High School.

Naturally, Dr. Felten is a die-hard Suns, Cardinals, D-Backs and Coyotes fan and loves going to as many home games as he can! He also loves to hike, bike ride and spend time with his family.

Recently, Dr. Felten has taken up photography and loves to capture the beautiful desert landscapes. Being a local optometrist, Dr. Felten feels a strong connection to our city, which is clearly evident in the outstanding personalized level of care he provides our patients.

Doctor of Optometry Degree and More….


Dr. Felten earned his Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from Brigham Young University, and then returned home to Arizona to pursue his Doctor of Optometry degree at Midwestern University in Glendale.

While at Midwestern University he was a member of the Beta Sigma Kappa Honor Society and was the recipient of the Clinical Excellence Award in Pediatrics and Vision Therapy.

Dr. Felten enjoys working with patients of all ages, and he particularly enjoys working with those who require specialty or hard-to-fit contact lenses. Additionally, he speaks fluent Spanish and serves many of our patients who are more comfortable and proficient speaking their native language.

Optometry in Phoenix


At Tatum EyeCare, we take optometry in Phoenix very personally. Whether we are natives like Dr. Felten, or transplants who have adopted this wonderful city as our own, we strive to treat every patient like an extended family member.

In an age of big-box retailers that offer impersonal patient care, our dedication to optometry in Phoenix allows us to help our neighbors throughout the Valley of the Sun see and live better lives one eye exam at a time. if you would like to schedule an eye care appointment with Dr. Felten, please give us a call today!
