I was a victim of the after affects of Lasik surgery . Pain in my eyes chronic dry eyes You name it. I thought that life as I knew it was over . I went to numerous doctors the best of the best throughout Houston and out of state . I’ve tried everything . When I went to see Dr. Yee it was a completely different experience I felt like I finally had hoped for the first time . His alternative methods and care and attention made my eyes better again. He tried different approaches , drops and procedures until I was able to finally find relief. Dr yes was a Godsend to me. I strongly recommend him . -Brittany E.

I have known Dr. Richard Yee for almost twenty years, and he is the finest Opthamologist in Houston. His skill and personalized attention to each patient is only complimented by his character. I am a 66 year old female, and I now have better than 20/20 vision after Dr. Yee completed my second cataract surgery several weeks ago. What a delight, after years of contact lenses, to now need only occasional readers. I have gone to him for my eye health for many years and trust no other for my family.

Dr. Yee Is a great doctor. I’ve gone to him for several years including my yearly eye exams and other eye issues. When I had a corneal ulcer, he saw me immediately and provided great care. He has always been upfront with risks and benefits and taken the time to listen to my concerns. I definitely recommend!

Dr. Yee really took the time to answer all of my questions during my eye exam. He didn't rush me through the appointment like some doctors do. I've been going to him for the past 4 years. Short wait time, ample parking, and nice staff.

I had cataract surgery with Dr. Yee. The incision for the lens was too large and the Cristalens fell into the eye causing a badly swollen retina and blurred vision. I had to have surgery to remove the Crystalens (which was attached only on one side) and endured months of unattractive bleeding in my eye and unstable vision. To add insult to injury, he made me pay the $1500 for the designer lens! He just sent me to a retina specialist, and NEVER checked on my condition. Would never recommend.

Dr. Yee did my LASIK surgery, and I could not be happier with the results. I no longer have to wear contacts or glasses and can see 20/20. He was attentive to my needs and thorough with all of the questions I had about the procedure. All of the post op instructions were clear and easy to follow. I highly recommend Dr. Yee for any and all eye care needs.
