Excellent experience with Dr Lewen. Had severe bleeding in left eye 20 years ago. He operated and all has been well since. I very recently (about 2 months ago) had severe bleeding in right eye. He operated and sight has returned to normal. Very good at explaining every step - the whys and hows of the surgery. Super bedside manners. Jack Layton April 2016

Dr Lewen was excellent. Extremely knowledgeable. Very thorough, Explains in detail his findings and what procedures he recommends. Very easy to take with. I was referred due to a rental tear. Dr Lewen did testing and confirmed there was a tear. Did a laser procedure to repair the tear. Absolutely no discomfort or problems. Complete office visit took less then one hour. Office staff excellent.
