Originally from Greensburg, Pennsylvania he served for six years in the US Navy prior to optometry school.

Dr. Ohlsen and his wife reside in Liberty Lake with their two young daughters. In their spare time they enjoy biking, swimming and camping.

Dr. Rikson Zollinger

Dr. Rikson Zollinger grew up in North Dakota and later received a B.S. degree in Exercise Science and Physiology from Brigham Young University in Utah. He continued his education at Southern College of Optometry in Memphis Tennessee where he received his Doctor of Optometry degree. He is an active member of the American Optometric Association, Optometric Physicians of Washington, Spokane Regional Inland Optometric Society, and the College of Optometrists in Vision Development.

Dr. Zollinger enjoys seeing patients of all ages and enjoys all areas of eye care, including general optometry, contact lens, pre/post cataract and LASIK, dry eye and other medical eye care. He is also experienced in pediatric binocular vision development, including "lazy eye" (amblyopia) and "eye turn" (strabismus), and post-concussive/TBI eye care. 

Dr. Zollinger speaks fluent Spanish, and is excited to be here in the Spokane area and be part of the Outlook Vision team. He enjoys spending most of his time with his wife and four
children - and when a free minute becomes available, you mind find him playing racquetball (where he competed nationally at the collegiate level) or golf, hunting or fishing, or possibly working on a home improvement project at their home in Spokane Valley.
