Wieslawa Andros, MD, OD, and Witold Andrzejewski, DVM, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with their children and grandchildren at the Cleveland Museum of Art on Nov. 15, 2013. Witold and Wieslawa were married on Nov. 22, 1963, in St. Anna Church in Warsaw, Poland.

The evening began with dinner in the Provenance restaurant, followed by a violin concert at Gartner Auditorium.

The couple are familiar to many in the Wilson County area through her clinic, Dr. Andros Eye Center in San Antonio. Dr. Andros, as Wieslawa was affectionately known to her many patients, practiced here for 20 years. Witold joined her in the business, and they both retired in 2008.

After distinguished international careers, they settled in Strongsville, Ohio, where their daughter, Paula, has her own practice. Their son, Rafal, is a senior executive of a major bank.

The couple love classical music and are strong supporters of the Cleveland Symphony. Wieslawa is an international member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, New York Academy of Sciences, and a life member of the Strongsville Historical Society.

Wieslawa received a Doctor of Medicine degree from Warsaw University in Warsaw, Poland, in 1964, and a Doctor of Optometry degree from New England College of Optometry in Boston, Mass., in 1992. Witold received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Warsaw University in 1964.

They both practiced in Warsaw in their respective fields. In 1974, Witold received a fellowship at the Veterinary College at Ohio State University and he moved to Columbus. Wieslawa came to the OSU as a visiting professor.

They also spent three years doing mission work for the World Health Organization in Africa. A few years later Wieslawa moved to Harvard Medical School in Boston as an associate professor. At Harvard she made a significant discovery, which had substantial influence on the treatment of glaucoma and blindness prevention.

In 2002, Dr. Wieslawa Andros received the Congressional Gold Medal in Recognition of Achievement and Patriotism.
