We are excited to welcome Dr. Derek Price to our practice. Dr. Price is an excellent match for our practice in many ways. First, he is warm, humble, and consistently takes time with each patient to ensure that their vision and eye care needs are fully met. Secondly, he is comfortable seeing all ages of patients, and has a particular interest in pediatric patients, as well as fitting specialty contact lenses, such as scleral lenses and corneal refractive therapy. Dr. Price is originally from Fort Wayne, Indiana, and is happy to be returning to northcentral Indiana. He began seeing patients in our Marion and Huntington locations in August 2018.
Dr. Price attended South High School, where he met his wife, Nickala. They were married in 2013. He earned his undergraduate degree in microbiology from Indiana University, and then graduated with his Doctor of Optometry degree from Indiana University School of Optometry in 2018.
Outside of work, Dr. Price enjoys spending time with his wife and young son. He can also occasionally be found in the local bowling alley, trying to nail another perfect game.
