About

Mr Edward Lee is presently a consultant Ophthalmologist and Surgeon practising at a number of private hospitals around London, including in Ashtead, Croydon, and North Cheam.  His NHS base is the Epsom and St. Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust, where he is the head consultant for retinal services.  

The doctor studied at prestigious Oxford University for his undergraduate training, which he completed in 1999.  During his time at Oxford, he won several prizes and accolades, including the Open Academic Scholarship from Brasenose College.  Mr Lee then worked throughout the UK and spent some time in New Zealand as well, before returning to London to pursue specialist training in ophthalmology from the prestigious University College London Institute of Ophthalmology, from which he received his PhD in 2011.

Mr Lee is a Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, a member of the British Medical Association, and a member of the British and Eire Association of Vitreoretinal Surgeons.  He continues to be active in the ophthalmic research community, focusing on improving patient outcomes from retinal surgeries.  He utilizes the latest small-gauge equipment and cutting-edge protocols for a focus on patient results.  

The list of eye-related procedures and interests that Mr Lee is trained in are numerous and varied.  Patients in need of cataract surgery, vitrectomy, retinal detachment surgery, macular hole surgery, or treatment for floaters (among many other conditions) are encouraged to book an appointment with Dr. Lee for a consultation.

Reviews

On behalf of my mother, who has just had her 2nd eye operated in to remove cataracts I would like to express our extreme appreciation for Mr Lee. At all times, from first consultancy to today's operation he has been a shining example of the excellent healthcare available. He has spoken to my mother and I with clear concise and non-technical jargon, explaining all procedures and actions. He has conducted himself with the utmost professionalism and his work has given my mother the life improving freedom we hoped it would. He was always available when needed and was meticulous with time keeping and approach to all areas of my mother's treatment.

Very professional, took all the stress and worry away by providing a clear explanation of the problems and the remedies. Efficient but sympathetic handling of the patient, straightforward after care and plan for further surgery, I'm completely confident in Mr Lee.

Ed is a very thorough and thoughtful doctor. He is excellently supported by his secretary and administrative team. I whole heartedly would recommend him to treat all acute and general ophthalmology problems. He specialises in retinal disease both medically and surgically as well as cataract surgery.
