Dr. Nathan Degn

Nathan Degn, OD

Dr. Nathan Degn was born and raised in Springville Utah. He received his Bachelors degree in Biology from Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah and his doctorate in Optometry from Arizona College of Optometry at Midwestern University, in Glendale, Arizona.  He completed internships at Mohave Eye Center, Arizona College of Optometry and the Eye Foundation of Utah. After graduation Dr. Degn worked in Utah for a time in both retail and private practice, but he missed the opportunity to follow and treat disease like Mohave Eye Center had afforded him, so he was very grateful to become part of the Mohave Eye Center team in November of 2018.  Dr. Degn has experience in primary care, contact lenses, and ocular disease as well as interest in scleral contact lenses.   

Dr. Degn lives in Kingman with his beautiful wife Rachel and three children.  When he is not at work he enjoys spending time with his family, as well as running, riding his motorcycle, working on cars and spending time outdoors.
