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.

Great doctor! Dr. Yee took the time to listen to my concerns and find the best treatment for my dry eyes. I also go to him for my yearly eye check ups. Friendly and helpful staff. Location is easy to get to with plenty of parking!
