As an eye doctor and the owner of Chagrin Valley Optometrist since 1988, Dr. Jurcak has treated thousands of patients in the Chagrin Valley area. He combines experience with thoroughness and personalized care in every patient encounter. He enjoys providing full scale comprehensive eye examinations to adults and children alike including the diagnosis and treatment of ocular disease and contact lens management. Dr. Jurcak’s area of interest is with individuals with special vision needs such as focusing, visual processing, and eye motor problems. In designing a vison therapy program he is able to work with these patients to help them maximize their functional vision to gain a better quality of life. His work is proof that vision means more than just what you can see on the eye chart.
After completing undergraduate work at The Ohio State University, Dr. Jurcak went on there to earn his doctorate in optometry in 1986. He is member of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development and the Optometric Extension Program. He resides in Burton with his wife Sylvia and has three grown children Andrew, Jessica and Noelle. Dr. Jurcak remains highly active in the community. He is a Cleveland native and an active member of the Chagrin Valley Rotary Club. He served as its president from 2008 to 2009. He is also board member of the Geauga County Historical Society.
Dr. Lewis became a partner with Dr. Jurcak in 2015 after merging her Beachwood practice into the Chagrin Valley Optometrists location. She is fully committed to lifetime whole eye health and preventative care. Her specialty interest is geared toward the pediatric population with an emphasis on myopia control. However she remains dedicated to comprehensive primary eye care including contact lens management as well as the diagnosis and treatment of ocular disease.
Dr. Lewis received her O.D. from the Illinois College Of Optometry and a B.S. from John Carroll University. She is an active member of the International Academy of Orthokeratology and Myopia Control and Women of Vision.
