Dr. Christine Lee is the best in eye care!! She genuinely cares about the total well-being of her patients. She's an exceptional well qualified professional!! My husband and I have been her parents since moving to Durham in the Summer of 2013. She did my cataract surgery in May 2016 and I'm very pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend Dr. Christine Lee for your eye care!!

I was apprehensive about getting cataract surgery in both eyes. Dr Lee and her staff explained the procedure to me and made me comfortable with the needed procedure, The operation was at Duke"s Davis Ambulatory and the staff there was outstanding to me and my wife. Even though I thought I saw clearly before, I am surprised that I now see things much clearer and better. My suggestion: If you need cataract surgery do not be fearful and go see Dr Lee.

I have been a patient of Dr. Christine Lee at Eye Institute of NC for more than 11 years. She performed LASIK on both of my eyes in January 2005 and I am still seeing better than 20/20! It was one of the best investments I have ever made! Dr. Lee and her staff are up to date on the current technologies and techniques in the field and give top notch care. I highly recommend this practice.

My cataract surgery was remarkable. I see better than I have in the past 20 years.

I was able to get an appointment quickly, and the office and surgical experience was first-rate. Procedures were explained very clearly. Office staff and Dr. Lee are readily available for questions and help.

I have been seeing Dr. Lee for around 10 years and am extremely satisfied with her professionalism and knowledge. She replaced one cataract with a new lens and made cuts in the other eye to correct an astigmatism. I now see better than I have in 65 years without glasses (except for reading glasses). Dr. Lee conducts thorough examinations and I like her very much. She has retained the same assistant for all the time I have been seeing her which says a lot for her management skills.

I strongly recommend Dr. Lee. I initially chose Dr. Lee because of her strong credentials, including her recent assistant professorship at Chapel Hill. That assured me that she stays current. Her performance matched her credentials. She carefully explained the procedures and the decisions I could make regarding my vision. Importantly, her technical staff carefully reported my concerns/questions to Dr. Lee so they could be addressed. My vision is now great. Should have done this sooner!
