Women In Business 2018 Feature: Dr. Susan Lee

Our Business:


Lake Oconee Eye Care Vision Source has been a leading provider of optometry services and vision care products in the Lake Oconee community since 2000. We want to help our patients of all ages achieve and maintain clear vision and optimum eye health for years to come.

Our Mission:

To serve our community by providing our patients an unparalleled eye care experience as we offer state of the art technology and vision care products, along with expert knowledge provided by our doctors and staff to educate them on what they need to have their very best vision for life.

Our Strengths:

We use state-of-the-art eye care equipment and we have a wide variety of frames, sunglasses, and lens packages at varying price levels, from basic to luxury. Our staff is caring and knowledgeable and we make it our number one priority to treat our patients like family. We also accept and file most insurances. Lake Oconee Eye Care not only has three optometrists on staff, but we also have cataract and retinal surgeons on staff for patient convenience. Our doctors live locally and are available for after-hour emergencies. The patient experience, care, and convenience is our main focus, as we are always striving to do better.

One Thing I’ve Learned Along The Way:

The one thing that is always free is kindness. You may not have every material thing you want or even need, but the one thing you always have to give to others is a kind word or thoughtful gesture. It can make a person’s day and makes the world a better place.

Words of Wisdom To Other Women In Business:

Know your brand. Don’t change your business model to try and fit into the “mold” of what’s popular. Stay on trend, but forge your own path. Set goals and have a vision for your company’s future; without those two things, your business can’t grow.

What has been your role of luck in your success?

I do not believe any of my success can be attributed to luck or chance. Instead, I believe it has had more to do with faith. God opened many doors at just the right time to bring me where I am today. It took having faith and trusting in God’s perfect plan for me. Looking back, I can see how all of the little things unfolded as He planted me in Lake Oconee to care for the eye health needs of this community.
