About Dr. Ryan Fullen
I am originally from Huntington WV. I moved to Indiana to study optometry and finished in 2011. I've been married to my wonderful wife for 14 years and have 3 children. We love all activities in nature like kayaking, surfing, hiking, fishing, biking, but our newest pride and joy is a used pop-up camper that we take out whenever we get the chance.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Dr. Ryan Fullen, Optometrist, and Associates, Summerville
You should see an optometrist once a year whether or not you believe you need vision correction. An annual eye exam can detect not only eye diseases but also other diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure. Schedule your eye exam today.
You should bring your vision insurance and medical insurance information to your eye exam. If you currently wear any prescription lenses, bring your eyeglasses, sunglasses, and contact lenses. You should also bring any and all questions you may have. Contact your optometrist if you have specific questions about any additional items you think you may need to bring to your eye exam.
Taking your child to an optometrist for an eye exam is the best way to learn if your child needs glasses. Many children who need glasses aren’t aware that they do. Signs of vision problems in children include sitting too close to the television, squinting, sensitivity to light, difficulty with eye-hand coordination, and avoiding visual activities like reading and drawing. To see if your child needs glasses, schedule your child’s eye exam today.
Changes in vision that occur with age include reduced pupil size, dry eyes, loss of peripheral vision, decreased color vision, and vitreous detachment. The most common vision problem that comes with age is presbyopia, which is the normal and unavoidable age-related loss of focusing ability. Different types of lenses can provide help for presbyopia. The risk of developing cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy increases with age too. Your optometrist will discuss any age-related vision problems you’re experiencing at your next annual eye exam.
Nearly anyone who needs vision correction can wear contact lenses. Contact lenses can provide vision correction for people with nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or a combination of these issues. Finding the perfect lens for you is sometimes a process of trial and error. All of the lens parameters can be finalized only after you’ve worn the successful combination. Schedule an eye exam to talk with your optometrist about whether contact lenses would be a good vision correction option for you.
Your Yearly Eye Exam
Annual eye exams are a recommended cornerstone for ensuring the health of your eyes. In addition to checking for changes in your vision and updating your prescription, your doctor will also look at your overall eye health, internally and externally.Learn More

Start by consulting your vision insurance company for coverage details —your plan may include an eye exam, lenses, and/or glasses.

WHY KIDS NEED EYE CARE
Children use their eyes constantly throughout the day to read, write, view the chalkboard, work on computers, and play sports. The strain put on their eyes only grows as they get older. While print in books gets smaller, hours spent studying increases. If parents don't get their children proper vision care, they can fall behind in every aspect of development.
