Provider Bio

Dr Leishman is originally from Brigham City, UT. He did his undergraduate at BYU, and graduated in 2005 in Biophysics. He then went to Fullerton, CA for optometry school, graduating in 2009. He completed his residency in pediatric vision and binocular vision (eye teaming, tracking, and focusing problems like eye turns and lazy eye) in Chicago, IL and then returned to Utah to practice. He loves all the great hiking, skiing, and outdoor activities Utah offers. He also enjoys ballroom dancing and playing his piano.

Provider Care Philosophy

Dr Leishman believes providing the best care for his patients means taking time to fully listen to their concerns, do a thorough exam, and then taking time to fully explain the exam findings, treatment options, and what the findings mean for the future. As part of his commitment to provide the highest quality care guided by the most current vision science, he attends the Academy of Optometry Meeting every year to stay current on new vision research and maintains Board Certification which requires continually evaluating, improving, and demonstrating clinical competency.
