We are a family owned and operated practice that is here for you.

Lawson’s Hearing Center: Our Story

Since 1953, Lawson’s Hearing Center has been a family owned and operated practice serving our community. Lewis Lawson started Lawson’s optical on the corner of Front Street and Main Street and focused on helping people with their eyesight. Robert Lawson joined his father Lewis and started fitting hearing aids in the mid-1980’s.

In 2002, we moved to our current location at 57 Front Street as Lawson’s Optical and Hearing Center. During this time Robert and Pamela Lawson owned and operated the business helping people with their eyesight and hearing needs, before gradually phasing out optical services. A few years later, Lawson’s Hearing Center was primarily focused on helping the community with their hearing needs. We still are to this day!

Jonathan joined the Lawson’s team in 2016 after practicing in Ohio for several years. Jonathan became the president of the practice in 2018, and is dedicated to his legacy of serving the community by providing excellent hearing healthcare.

We believe in helping the people in the Southern Tier area with all of their hearing needs, and treating them just as we would our own family. We have been serving our community for over 65 years and will strive to keep people connected for years to come!
