To the editor:

To my valued patients: After 36 years of practicing optometry in Mocksville, it has come my time to retire. Over the past year, health issues have kept me away from the clinic and for the best interest of my future health, I have chosen not to return.

I want to thank each of you and your families for trusting your eyecare needs to me and my staff. It has been a wonderful pleasure to be your eye doctor. I have many fond memories and have made many friends along the way. Helping folks see properly has been a blessing as a career.

Fortunately, I leave you and all of Mocksville in good hands. As many of you know, Mocksville Vision Center merged with Summit Eye Care a few years back. Dr. Vic Khemsara is the owner and surgeon; and under his guidance, a new first-class clinic now exists with state-of-the-art visual equipment.

Two full-time optometrists, Dr. Peter Rogaski and Dr. Theresa Watt, are here for all your visual needs. Both doctors are well trained and have extensive knowledge of eye care. Simply put, they will take wonderful care of you. I can say this with confidence as these doctors provided care for me before and after my recent cataract surgery performed by Dr. Khemsara.

Again, thank you for allowing me to be your eye doctor. This decision to retire has been difficult, but the time has come. I’m sure I will see many of you around town, at church and other places. Please say hello, and if I can be of assistance, just ask.  I wish the best for all of you.

Dr. Steven G. Laymon, Mocksville
