Brandon W. Lee
His father, Dr. Worldster Lee, was among the first in Hawaii to perform modern cataract surgery and one of Hawaii’s leading cataract surgeons. Today, Dr. Brandon Lee is proud to continue his father’s legacy at the Cataract & Vision Center of Hawaii.
Born and raised in Honolulu, Dr. Lee’s goal has always been to return home to serve the people of Hawaii. A graduate of Harvard Medical School, Dr. Lee was fortunate to train at two of the nation’s top eye institutes: USC’s Doheny Eye Institute for his residency, and the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, ranked the nation’s #1 eye hospital for the past 18 years, for his fellowship in medical diseases of the retina. A board-certified ophthalmologist, Dr. Lee specializes in state-of-the-art cataract surgery; treats conditions such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and age-related macular degeneration; and provides comprehensive eye care for people of all ages. In 2013, he was the first in Hawaii to perform laser-assisted cataract surgery using the Catalys femtosecond laser. “Giving patients back their vision is one of the most rewarding things I can imagine,” says Dr. Lee. “Our technology has become so precise that we can offer our cataract patients customized laser treatment and lens implants that 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.
Dr. Lee is also proud to offer his services to the people of the Big Island, where he specializes in cataract surgery at the Ludwig Ophthalmology Centre in Hilo. Together with Dr. Daniel Choi, a cataract, corneal and refractive surgeon, Dr. Brandon Lee and the staff of the Cataract & Vision Center of Hawaii are committed to providing compassionate care to the people of Hawaii.
