Dr. Laisne was one of Fresno's most promising professional men, an optometrist. In 1909 he came to California and in July of that year graduated from the Los Angeles College of Optometry and Ophthalmology. In 1910 he opened an office in the Republican Building and began his practice. After the death of Dr. Rowell in 1912, Dr. Laisne was able to occupy the well known rooms in the corner of the second floor of the Republican Building, which Dr. Rowell had used for so many years. He remained there until May 1918 when his increasing business and growing reputation demanded a more commodious and accessible location. He then leased the adjoining Bank and Trust Company of Central California, at 1054 J Street, and exactly opposite that old landmark, the Grand Central Hotel.
