Dr. Lee is available to see patients on Monday and Thursday afternoons in the Greeley office. He sees patients in the Loveland office the remainder of the week.


We offer basic optometric services with a family type appeal. We are a small office so you will continually see the same people and always feel welcome. We are not a mall type discount office, but rather offer personal, dependable service with quality name brand products.

Basic eye exams, which includes a check of your eye health and refraction to determine your glasses or contact lens prescription, will be provided by Dr. Lee III personally, not a technician. Janet or Barb will expertly guide you through your glasses selection or contact lens education process. Our in-office lab will always provide prompt service. We also refer and can co-manage our patients who are in need of further eye health care such as cataract surgery and Lasik vision correction.

Many vision care insurance coverages are accepted including VSP (Vision Service Plan) and Medicare. If you have questions about a certain plan please call and talk to Janet, she is our insurance consultant. If the plan you have is not one we deal with directly we will do our best to help you file the paperwork necessary for reimbursement. We also accept Visa, MasterCard, personal checks and cash.

Office History

Barb, George and JanetDr. George W. Lee III grew up in southwest Iowa and moved to Colorado in 1960. He graduated from high school in Greeley and attended the University of Northern Colorado for his undergraduate education. He graduated with his doctorate in optometry from the Illinois College of Optometry in 1973 and returned to northern Colorado. He and his father opened their optometric practice in Loveland in 1974 and added their Greeley office in 1979. Dr. Lee Sr. retired in 1993 and Dr. Lee III entered into a shared office arrangement with Dr. Marcia Stauter and her Parkview Family Eye Center in Greeley to continue service to his Greeley patients. He continues to see patients at his Loveland office also.

He is a member of the American Optometric Association, the Colorado Optometric Association, the Northern Tri-Cities Optometric Society and his service club, Loveland Sertoma. He continues to further his education throughout the year by attending various continuing education programs.

Dr. Lee III is very lucky to have two very capable assistants. His wife, Barb, has worked in the Loveland office since it opened. She is very good at frame selection where she can use her artistic abilities and she enjoys interacting with all of our patients. When she is not at the office she works part time at Rosemary's Hallmark Store in the Orchards Center in Loveland. Janet has worked for Dr. Lee III for over twenty-five years. She lives in Windsor and spends part of her week in the Loveland office and part in the Greeley office. If you have insurance coverage, Janet will be the one to help you get through the paperwork. She admits that she enjoys working with new contact lens wearers the most, teaching them to care for and handle their lenses. You will soon find that she is one of the most avid, educated hockey fans around, following both the Avalanche and the Eagles.

Dr. Lee III enjoys meeting and caring for his patients in both offices and especially likes meeting new ones. He and his wife, Barb, have two married children and one new grandson. If he is not at the office he can be found anytime of the year on the golf course. He also enjoys reading for pleasure.

Dr. Lee III and his staff look forward to seeing you soon!
