Louis Lipschultz

Dr. Lipschultz purchased what is now Southland Eye Associates, PC from Dr. Sol Rocke, in 1986. They enjoyed practicing together year after year, until Dr. Rocke's passing in 2010 at the age of 90. Dr. Lipschultz has been highly active in both optometric practice and industry. He was on the Advisory Board of Bausch and Lomb for many years, and has participated in market and clinical research projects from multiple companies. His passions in practice bridge the gamut of vision care issues: advanced contact lens fitting, detecting and managing diseases such as macular degeneration and glaucoma, as well as vision disorders in children.
