Dr. Amy Iddins is originally from central Illinois. She made the move to Indiana for her undergraduate degree at Indiana State University where she graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. During her time at Indiana State, she served in multiple roles on the executive board for her sorority, Chi Omega.
Dr. Iddins went on to complete her Doctor of Optometry degree at the University of Alabama at Birmingham where she graduated magna cum laude. While in school, she was an active member of the American Optometric Student Association, “SVOSH” Student Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity, and Beta Sigma Kappa Honor Society. At the completion of her clinical training, Dr. Iddins was selected by her professors to receive the Jess Boyd Eskridge Excellence in Primary Care Award.
After graduation, Dr. Iddins elected to do a year-long residency at the Tuscaloosa VA Medical Center in Tuscaloosa, AL. Her residency focused on hospital-based primary care with a strong emphasis in ocular disease. During this year of training, she became very proficient in the diagnosis and management of many diseases including glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, corneal disorders, dry eye disease, and diabetic eye disease.
Following her residency, Dr. Iddins & her husband relocated back to the Midwest to be closer to friends and family. They reside in Fishers with their two young children, Harper & Leo, and puppy, Sully. She has spent the majority of her career practicing primary care optometry in Carmel, but is very excited for the opportunity to work in the Fishers area now, providing eye care to the community she calls home. Dr. Iddins is an active member of the Indiana Optometric Association and American Optometric Association. In her free time, she loves to do home renovation projects, bake desserts, travel with her family, and explore the local food scene.
