Would recommend Dr Lee for similar eyelid procedure. Discussion among patients in waiting area revealed positive opinions of Dr Lee in eye surgery and special implants.

Dr. Lee impressed me with the very thorough eye exam he performed. Since my long-distance vision was fairly good, he didn't insist on my getting eyeglasses.
