About Me

Coming from a family deeply entrenched in medicine, with an anesthesiologist father and registered nurse mother, Dr. Lewis is at home providing eye care. He completed his training in optometry after graduating from the University of Mississippi and then joined Steen-Hall Eye Institute. Working as clinical director with the late Dr. William Steen he was involved in many developments in the field of eye care and has continued that tradition as a partner at the WK Eye Institute.

He has been appointed twice by the governor of Louisiana to serve on the Louisiana State Board of Optometry. He has also served as a board member on the Association of Regulating Boards of Optometry, the Optometry Association of Louisiana and the Southwest Council of Optometry. Dr. Lewis is an adjunct faculty member of the Southern College of Optometry, Kentucky College of Optometry, Pennsylvania College of Optometry, and Western University College of Optometry.

He and his wife, Liz, live in Bossier City and they have two sons, Landon and Trenton.  When not working Dr. Lewis enjoys tennis, hunting, and loving on his two dachshunds.
