Dr. Steven Lee  

Co-Founder & Chief Science Officer, Opternative

In addition to his formal training in eye care, Steven has a background in engineering, as well as a keen interest in optics. Before starting Opternative, he was previously in clinical practice from 2007-2013. During that time, he focused on the areas of difficult contact lens fittings, ocular disease treatment, and dry eye management. In addition to seeing patients in the past, Steven has also taught ophthalmology students the basics of clinical refraction and the systematic approach to contact lens fittings. He has managed numerous surgical cases and was previously a reviewer for the Council on Optometric Practitioner Education, as well as a researcher and clinical investigator for the Global Revitalens Experience and Acceptance Trial. Steven loves thinking outside of the box, and enjoys creating solutions to problems that people never thought were possible to solve.
