Two is Better than One
Dr. Lee and Dr. Wu work as a team. They specialize in orthokeratology and specialty contact lens fitting. Their main interest is in pediatric optometry to arrest the progression of myopia, and visual rehabilitation for post-refractive surgical patients. Some of their patients travel from distant parts of Canada and USA. Dr. Lee is the first optometrist in BC to promote orthokeratology. Both Dr. Lee and Dr. Wu have appeared in Chinese TV and radio talk shows. They have successfully treated over a thousand BC children with orthokeratology and fit thousands of ortho-k lenses.
Dr. Lee and Dr. Wu are dedicated professionals, sincere in their mission to provide the best quality service and care to their patients. They always strive for the best possible result for every patient.
Dr. T.F. LeeB.Sc.(Hons.), M.C.Optom.(UK), O.D.
Dr. Lee has trained on three continents: Asia, Europe, and North America. Starting as an apprentice in his family optical business, he performed refractions while still in high school. In 1982, he completed his optometry degree with honours from The City University in London, England. Continuing his training in contact lens practice, he worked as an optometric consultant in numerous private offices. He immigrated to Canada in 1989 and worked with the Grenfell Mission in St. Anthony, Newfoundland, a local hospital that serves northern Newfoundland and all of Labrador. He flew to local coastal regions to perform eye examinations in adverse conditions with basic instrumentation. This has enhanced his skills today with any pediatric and geriatric patients who are non-communicative and who do not fit well with modern instrumentation.
Dr. Lee spent a further two years in the University of Waterloo, Canada, and obtained his Doctor of Optometry degree. He has passed his licensing exams in England, Newfoundland, Ontario, and British Columbia. Currently he practices in Burnaby, BC.
Dr. Lee is originally from Malaysia and has lived in BC for the last 24 years where he met his wife, Dr. Sharon Wu. His interest outside of optometry includes a B.A.(Hons.) in Theology. He is fluent in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Malay, Hakka, and Hokkien.

Dr. Wu was born and raised in Vancouver, BC.
