About Us

Our Humble Beginning

A family-owned business, Lees Optical Co Ltd was established in 1963 by Dr Edward Llwellyn Lee. In December 1963, he migrated from Guyana to Jamaica with his wife Mary Olga and their five children. He made his mark in the world of optometry in Jamaica by opening Edward Lee & Son – Optometrists/Opticians located at 7 Paisley Avenue, Kingston 5. His wife managed the administrative side of the business, and together they would give their expert advice on frame and lens selections.

Our Milestones

In Fond Remembrance Of Dr Edward L Lee

Sadly, in May 2008, we said farewell to Dr Edward L Lee, a father, a friend, an optometrist and optician, as well as a great leader. ‘Doc’ Eddie Lee, as he was known by his peers, Will always be remembered for his professionalism, his patience, his honesty, his punctuality, his accuracy, his understanding, his keen sense of listening and his great sense of humour. These qualities that he portrayed in his profession made Lees Optical Co Ltd the family name it is today.
