Dr. Lee's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lee "As one of Georgia's few ophthalmologists with fellowship training in Cataract surgery, corneal transplants, and LASIK vision correction, I can help you with any eye problems affecting the front part of the eye (The Ocular Surface, Cornea, and Lens). My practice, Eye Consultants of Atlanta, is one of the oldest and largest eye care practices in the Southeastern US and one of the only private practices with specialists in ALL fields of eye care from pediatric eye care, glaucoma, retinal diseases such as diabetes and macular degeneration, cataract surgery, plastic surgery, neuro-ophthalmology, corneal transplants, corneal infections, and LASIK. I routinely see patients from all over the state of GA and surrounding states as my practice has some unique diagnostic instruments and state-of-the-art equipment not seen in other eye care practices in Georgia. We have Atlanta's first Catalys laser system for cataract surgery- a new state-of-the -art device that provides improved vision outcomes after cataract surgery and refractive lens exchange. I have one of only a few Lipiflow devices in Georgia, a revolutionary treatment for dry eye disease (lipiflow.com). We also have Georgia's only confocal microscope that helps with diagnosis of severe eye infections commonly seen in contact lens wearers. We are able to treat these contact lens infections and provide vision correction surgery with Georgia's only WaveLight All-laser LASIK system to prevent the need for future contacts. We give back the gift of sight in so many ways! Let my partners and I help you with your vision."

Dr Lee is good Dr. Unfortunately when he comes to Macon, overwhelmed.Waits are LONG(2 hours not uncommon). My outcome not as good as most seem to be. The biggest minus is he is from Atlanta & in town only once a month.(Should have thought that one through) You need help, you end up with local...more

I have had a rapidly diminishing visual acuity for the past several months due to Fuch's Dystrophy. Ten days ago I had DMEK procedure. Though it was painless, I did feel like I had some minor scratchiness for 36 hours. My recovery is phenomenal. I have not enjoyed such acuity, color...more

I've been seeing Dr. Lee for just under 1 year. If I could afford it, I would rent a billboard telling you why you should see him, and how much I just LOVE him and his staff.
