Dr. Colburn loves the opportunity to work with children and make a permanent difference in their lives. He went to medical school with the intention of being a pediatrician before he unexpectedly fell in love with eyes. Pediatric ophthalmology has given him the opportunity to work with kids & eyes. He specializes in working with lazy eye (amblyopia), eye muscle problems in children and adults (strabismus), infant tear duct surgery, childhood glaucoma, childhood droopy eyelids (ptosis), and small incision cataract surgery in infants and children.
The Colburn family love living in the Spokane area with the family atmosphere and range of outdoor activities available. They enjoy traveling, camping, and snow & water sports.
