Dr. Rikson Zollinger grew up in North Dakota and later received a Bachelor of Exercise Science and Physiology degree from Brigham Young University in Utah. He continued his education at Southern College of Optometry in Memphis Tennessee where he completed a specialized rotation in vision therapy with honors and received his Doctor of Optometry degree with distinction. After graduating from optometry school he returned to ND to practice, but his interest in vision therapy only continued to grow because he saw so many patients that struggled with vision issues with which vision therapy could help. He is very excited to be here in Yakima and to work with the team here at Washington Vision Therapy Center, and for the opportunity to help those that struggle with these vision problems.
Dr. Zollinger enjoys his time with his wife, Laura, and their three young children. He also enjoys racquetball, golf, and hunting.
