Brandon W. Lee, M.D.
Asecond-generation board-certified ophthalmologist, Dr. Brandon Lee takes great pride in continuing the legacy of quality eye care started by his father, Dr. Worldster Lee, at the Cataract & Vision Center of Hawaii.
“Caring for our most precious gift of sight is a privilege that should not be taken lightly,” says Dr. Lee. “At our practice, we treat our patients like family because it truly is a family affair.”
An Iolani graduate, Dr. Lee received his M.D. from Harvard Medical School and trained at two of the nation’s top eye institutes: USC’s Doheny Eye Institute, where he completed his residency, and the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, ranked the nation’s #1 eye hospital for the past 17 years, where he completed a fellowship in medical diseases of the retina.
In addition to routine eye care, Dr. Lee treats a wide array of eye diseases, including diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration, but his true passion is cataract surgery. “The technology has become so precise that we can offer our cataract patients customized laser treatment with multifocal lens implants, which can both correct astigmatism and restore a full range of vision.” The Cataract & Vision Center of Hawaii is one of the few practices in Hawaii with an on-site surgery center dedicated specifically to cataract surgery and was the first to acquire the state-of-the-art Catalys femtosecond laser. Dr. Lee also dedicates part of his time to caring for patients in Hilo, where he performs cataract surgery at the Ludwig Ophthalmology Center.
Dr. Lee currently serves as vice president of the Hawaii Ophthalmological Society and has served on the executive board of the Hawaii Medical Association. In 2018, he was selected by his peers to represent Hawaii at the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s Leadership Development Program in Washington, D.C.
With his partner at the Cataract & Vision Center of Hawaii, Dr. Daniel Choi, a corneal and refractive surgeon, Dr. Lee finds daily joy and fulfillment as an ophthalmologist and is highly committed to providing compassionate care to his patients.
