  • Dr.
    Austin Lee

    Dr. Lee is an optometrist in San Diego providing complete eye care services for the surrounding communities.

    Dr. Lee is a people person and his favorite part of an eye exam is getting to know his patients, he will strike a conversation about hobbies on top of addressing vision and eye health needs during your eye exam.  In the years of practicing optometry, what Dr. Lee finds the most enjoyable is being able to prescribe eyewear to his patients based on their individual vision needs, and then having his patients realize what a benefit the eye wear can be! 

    Dr. Lee’s educational background is culturally diverse, as he completed his undergraduate studies at UC Davis, learned Spanish while studying abroad in Costa Rica, and in 2012 he graduated from the InterAmerican University of Puerto Rico, where he obtained extensive clinical training in the diagnosis and treatment of ocular diseases, including glaucoma. 

    Dr. Lee grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and he really enjoys outdoor activities. In his free time you can find him camping at Yosemite, surfing at Tourmaline in the summer, golfing, or playing basketball.  Dr. Lee has been enjoying outdoor activities even more as he has his three-year old son and wife to enjoy it with.
