One of the earliest memories that Drs. Charles and Bill Williamson have of their father, Dr. William Williamson, was when he ... brought home a plastic cup of cow eyes he had obtained from a local slaughterhouse for his sons to dissect while he described the anatomy to them. Their father went on to build one of the largest private optometric practices in the state and was blessed with four boys, all of whom eventually felt a calling towards eye care themselves. The brothers went on to establish one of the largest surgical ophthalmology practices in the State of Louisiana. They built the first outpatient surgery center for ophthalmic surgery in Louisiana in 1983. Dr. Charles was one of the very first in the world to describe and perform topical clear corneal cataract surgery which would eventually become the preferred technique by surgeons performing cataract surgery across the globe. He became an international speaker, educator, author, and pioneer in the refractive surgery space and through his leadership, the Williamson Eye Center went on to participate in many FDA trials which would shape the future of vision correction. Today, the third generation of the Williamson family is actively involved in the practice, helping to further its legacy. We are fortunate to work with over 100 teammates, many of whom have been with our practice for over 20 years. Through the combined leadership of our work family and with a shared vision of offering the best eye care possible, Williamson Eye has grown to include 4 offices around the greater Baton Rouge area that serve 9 parishes, 2 certified surgery centers, and a LASIK center. Williamson Eye has become a vertically integrated medical and surgical ophthalmic practice with heavy specialization in cataract and refractive surgery as well as minimally invasive glaucoma surgery, yet still serves as a full-service ophthalmic practice offering eye care, eyewear and eye surgery for patients of all ages. read more
