Long time ophthalmologist set to retire
In blink of an eye, Lewis' 33 years of practice draw to a close
Dr. Lewis at home
Dr. Lawson Lewis is retiring after 33 years as an ophthalmologist. He says he will miss his patients and staff most of all.
When Dr. Lawson Lewis started his solo ophthalmology practice in Camden on July 11, 1977, there were only three people helping him in his office. At the time, Lewis thought his practice would only perform 100 surgeries a year -- an expectation that was quickly shattered when he found himself doing four times that amount as the years passed. But after 33 years of practicing ophthalmology in Camden, Lewis said he feels as if it is finally time for him to retire.
