(PRESS RELEASE)GREEN BAY, WI — Shopko Optical, a leader in providing trusted eye care to communities for over 40 years, announces the acquisition of Lake Optical, Inc., 2 W. Grand Avenue Suite 107 in Fox Lake, Illinois.

Shopko Optical Fox Lake will open on Monday, December 6, with Dr. Dennis Lewinson continuing to provide the comprehensive eye care services his patients in the Fox Lake community have appreciated for the past 30 years.

“We are very excited to be part of the Fox Lake community,” said Russ Steinhorst, Shopko Optical CEO. “Shopko Optical has built its history by providing patient-centric eye care, high-quality eyewear, and outstanding customer service through its team of dedicated optometrists and opticians. Dr. Lewinson is a great addition to our team, and we are happy to be able to support his continued practice with an enhanced selection of eyewear and expanded hours to accommodate our patients.”

As part of Shopko Optical Fox Lake, Dr. Dennis Lewinson will continue to provide patients with comprehensive eye care services, including eye exams, contact lens fitting, and detection and management of eye disease.

Dr. Lewinson graduated from the Illinois College of Optometry and is well known in the Fox Lake community as a caring optometrist who puts his patients and his community first. Shopko Optical shares Dr. Lewinson’s community values and is looking forward to an association with Fox Lake’s local Lions Club to identify eligible children within the area to receive a comprehensive eye exam and pair of glasses through its Kids in Focus program.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with Dr. Lewinson and extend our brand in Northern Illinois,” added Steinhorst. “We’re committed to ensuring our new Shopko Optical Fox Lake patients receive the same thorough and trusted care they have come to expect.”
