After several years of working at an optometry chain, the brother and sister duo of Dr. Bill Najem and Dr. Juliette Lewis Tritsis, decided to start their own family practice, thus Eyes on the Lake was born and soon to follow Affinity Optical.

Drs. Najem and Lewis Tritsis value the opportunity to take care of customers and patience at their own pace, in the same family atmosphere that they experienced growing up in Youngstown, Ohio.

The siblings were raised Canfield, Ohio in a large and loving family. They are two of six siblings. Drs. Najem and Lewis Tritsis come from a long line of health care professionals, who taught them a strong sense of family and good solid work ethic.

Dr. Lewis Tristis was inspired to become an optometrist because of her close relationship with her grandfather, Dr. Wade Najem, a World War I veteran, and an optometrist. Dr. Najem’s inspiration was his sister, Dr. Lewis Tristis.

Their grandfather operated his practice out of his home. Likewise, their father, Raymond Najem, an orthodontist, ran a successful orthodontic practice in Youngstown, Ohio until his retirement.
