Dr David Leach

Doctor Details


Dr. Leach was born the son of a minister in rural Nebraska and raised in eastern Oklahoma where Midwest values were deeply instilled and his dreams of becoming a doctor were nurtured at a very young age.


Dr. Leach excelled at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine where he earned his Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree in 1996, graduating with honors. He went on to complete a rigorous and highly specialized training in Ophthalmology & Eye Surgery at the University of Kentucky and was one of the first resident physicians in the state to perform laser vision correction.


In 2001, Dr. Leach moved to Moscow and founded the ClearView Eye Clinic which has expanded into the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley. ClearView Eye Clinic is widely recognized as the premier eye center in the Quad-cities and also has satellite offices both in St. Maries and Lapwai. Warm and compassionate, Dr. Leach is widely known for his exceptional ''bedside manner''. He quickly sets the minds of his patients and their families at ease and it is no wonder why a steady stream of patients from all over Idaho as well as eastern Washington and northwestern Oregon find their way into his office for second opinions and consultations.


Board-certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, Dr. Leach has distinguished himself as a regional leader in both laser vision correction and cataract/lens implant surgery. Industry leader SightPath Medical acknowledged him as one of the "Top 50 LASIK Surgeons" in the country. He is also a widely recognized and respected member of the TLC Vision network of refractive surgeons, known for their surgical innovations and refractive expertise throughout the country. Dr. Leach enjoys his current academic responsibilities as Clinical Instructor with the University of Washington Department of Ophthalmology where he is widely popular among the WWAMI medical students for his entertaining and memorable style of instruction.


When Dr. Leach is not busy with his clinical practice he stays active in local community events, raising money for his favorite charities or entertaining friends and family alongside his wife at their countryside home.
