About the Doctor
Dr. Harold Lee graduated with honors in 3 years from The Johns Hopkins University with a Chemistry Major. He completed his medical degree at The University of Tennessee, where he graduated #1 in his class rank. He completed his residency at the Mayo Clinic, Department of Ophthalmology, in Rochester, Minnesota. Following residency, Dr. Lee completed a two-year fellowship in oculofacial plastic and orbital surgery endorsed by the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Orbital Surgery (ASOPRS).
Dr. Lee is the author of numerous articles and textbook chapters on subjects, such as eyelid malposition, facial reconstruction, orbital tumors, Thyroid Eye Disease, and facial trauma. He is a member of the Indiana Academy of Ophthalmology (IAO) and has received the status of Fellow in the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), and the American College of Surgeons (FACS).
Dr. Lee is the only Fellowship Director approved by the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Orbital Surgery (ASOPRS) in the state of Indiana. He trains fellows in the art and science of oculoplastic surgery, facial cosmetic procedures and orbital/eyelid reconstruction.
A native of Memphis, Tennessee, Dr. Lee and his wife, have three children and are active in their church and community. He enjoys time with his family, skiing and playing the banjo.
