We work for our patients to make sure their insurance is working hard for them to utilize the most benefits available when it comes to their eye health. -Dr. Susan Lee


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 a 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 affordable 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 – most eye exams can be covered under medical insurance. We work for our patients to make sure their insurance is working hard for them to utilize the most benefits available when it comes to their eye health. 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 are our focus, as we are always striving to do better.

What are your proudest moments: I’m extremely proud to watch my two beautiful daughters, Olivia and Avery, grow and develop into strong, independent individuals who are learning to navigate life and follow God in big ways.I’m also proud of finding and maintaining balance between work and home life for the past 26 years with my husband and business partner Dr. Perry Lee. Last year we celebrated the 20th Anniversary of Lake Oconee Eye Care with the opening of our new facility. I’m proud of taking the faith step to expand the practice so far into my career. It has been a huge blessing and we are so grateful for the support of this community and proud to be a part of Georgia’s Lake country for almost 30 years.

If you could go back and talk to your “rookie” self, what would you say: I would say, “Don’t take yourself too seriously. Life is short, so appreciate every minute of it and don’t rush things. Be honest and kind and the rest will take care of itself.”
