Newcastle Eye Care was founded in 2003 by the husband and wife team of Dr. Karl Lee and Dr. Nora Teo. The office moved to its current location at 14 North Street in the fall of 2012, having previously occupied a space across the street on King Avenue.
Dr. Karl Lee earned his Doctor of Optometry Degree from the University of Waterloo School of Optometry. He interned at JFK Memorial Hospital in Philadelphia and at the Scarborough Low Vision Clinic. After practising in Bowmanville for eight years, Dr. Lee then started up Newcastle Eye Care with Dr. Teo. He enjoys spending time with family, basketball, and is active with the church youth group.
