Awesome Doctor! Awesome service! Dang... my eyes feel awesome!!

I took my nephew and myself to Manteca Optometry to get my eyes checked out and to get a new prescription cause my contacts were getting blurry! Staff was friendly and helpful, got me an appt within a few days.. 

Dr. Lee and his staff were very thorough in the exams and diagnostics. For my nephew, Dr. Lee found an eye condition that no other doctor has found, and he even showed me a picture of it! It looked like a banana and boy was it huge! I'm super upset that other optometrists didn't even catch that after all these years!! Different doctors, different standards of care.. I get it.. but that banana was kinda hard to miss! I'm glad Dr. Lee was able to diagnose it and made us aware of it so it doesn't get any bigger. Gave me lots of information and answered any question I possibly had and some that I didn't even think to ask.. ha ha!

For my eyes, apparently I'm a blind bat.. at least Dr. Lee confirmed I didn't have that much astigmatism, which I've been told on and off that I had..and heavily (-_-).. He gave me new Rx and thank friggin god my eyes are the same degree now! To top off a great exam, he even price matched my contacts through a 3rd party vendor and shipped it free! (which i must say, my vendor is realllyyyyyy cheap!)

Overall, when Dr. Lee does a comprehensive exam, let me tell you.. it's really COMPREHENSIVE!! Also, he looks young but don't let his looks fool you! He's on top of his game in the optometry field.. I would definitely recommend his services to everyone near and far in need of a GOOD doctor :). In fact, I'm bringing my mom from the bay area next week to see him!

p.s. His kids are super adorable!!

When I need my eyes check and for new glasses I go to Manteca Optometry.  I've been check by both Dr. Derron and Leanne Lee in the pass years, and loved their service.  During my appointments they were very gentle, very sufficient and professional.  I can sit through the appointment and feel comfortable. They explan things as they're examining, great patient and medical staff rapport.  I highly recommend you to see them for great glass and large brand selections.  Also their staffs are people friendly too.  Support your local business see Dr. Lee.

Location: Easy to find with parking. The store front is clean, well lit and organized. This is not a very big office but I found the selection to be very good with many major brands ranging from inexpensive to some really nice stuff. 

Staff: The staff is very friendly and easy going. They are very attentive and tries to accommodate your shopping style. At first I just wanted to browse and they were happy to leave me alone and let me take my time. When I finally narrowed my decision on a few frames, they were happy to give me advice and play "fashion assistant" helping me pick up some really sharp looking frames. 

Dr. Derron Lee: I've had glasses for over 30 years and Dr. Lee is by far one of the most competent and intelligent optometrists I've had the pleasure of using. He's a young guy but don't let that fool you. He is very knowledgeable and answered all my questions with patience and depth. He's up to speed on all the latest technologies but also down to earth and listens to his patients.

Overall: I would not hesitate to refer my friends and family here. They will be taken care of for sure. 

The only negative I can think of is that this office is very popular and it does get a little crowded sometimes. But I think that's evidence how good this place is. People come here for a good reason.

Just want to give a thumbs up to Dr. Lee and his entire staff!!  From the second I walked it, it was all about service!!  Walked out with a pair of glasses that worked for me at the price that fit my budget!!  Thank you for being classy!!

I love my new Versace glasses.  They hooked it up.  Staff is super friendly. Dr. Derron Lee is as cool as they get.  Very nice office.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I loved this place! I had gone in and made an appointment and the receptionists were very cordial and very nice. The Dr. I met was very friendly and polite, and explained things to me in detail that was important for me to know because my father is diabetic and he needs to get all the care he can for his eyes. I made an appointment for my dad who hasn't had an eye exam in 3 years, and the Dr. helped him with the information about his diabetes. With the help of the staff, we were able to pick out some cool frames. My dad also got fitted for some contact lens and has not had any issues with them.  I will def bring my family back here again.

For a long time, I have never seen an optometrist only because I am "afraid" of anything dealing with the eye.  But it got to the point where I had to get them checked because I was getting headaches and my eyes felt very tired by mid-day.  I was recommended to take a look at Manteca Optometry, which was about 35 minutes away from where I live.  There is a local optometrist to where I live but since this was based off of a recommendation, I opted to check out the place myself.

My first impressions of the location was "cute".  The setting is established around a "small town feel" with signs hanging off from the eaves of the building.  The area seems nice and parking is generally available at anytime of the day.

Upon walking into Manteca Optometry, everything was clean.  Very professional, well kept, and overall a great pleasant feeling, especially for people like me who have anxiety over eye issues.  The wait time was hardly anything, despite a few people ahead of me.  The optometrist is separated in two "areas" is the waiting/lobby area and the other is for frames.  I was immediately greeted by great staff behind the counter, and, as expected, I had to fill out several pieces of paperwork as a first time customer.

Once that was done, the assistant behind the counter took me to a room in the back where there were machinery to check my eyes.  While my hands were a bit clammy going in there from the anticipation, the overall experience was very good.  Ultimately, I ended up meeting Dr. Derron Lee in his office where he thoroughly explained the results of my tests.  He answered all of my questions and concerns about my eye sight.  One thing that did impress me about Dr. Derron Lee was that he took the time out to get to know me FIRST before conducting business.  The reason why that was important to me was because I didn't feel like "just another customer".  I genuinely felt like he cared for me as a person and truly wanted to get to know who I was.

After the examination, it was determined that I needed some type of glasses.  While I was not ecstatic about the news, I was introduced to another assistant who helped me pick out a frame.  What's important to know here is that the optometry has a LOT of high quality, brand name frames.  Another important thing to know too was that the assistant did not try to "upsell" me on anything, or on a high priced item.  She helped pick out frames that fit ME...that fit MY style.  

Overall, I had a really good experience there.  For those on the fence about getting your eyes checked for the first time (like myself), do yourself a favor and take a look at Manteca Optometry.  The staff is great, the doctor is great.   If you want just random service, go elsewhere.  But if you want to be treated like a VIP and offered great quality customer service that you deserve, then go to Manteca Optometry.

I was back at work before i knew it!! I would definitely recommend Dr. Derron Lee to any of my friend and family!! Thanks again Dr. Lee!!

I was referred by some fellow co-workers and was 100% satisfied on the customer service. The moment I walked in the door I was indulged in professionalism and courtesy. I do a semi-annual eye exam and have never had a Dr. so engaged and thorough. The hands on technology was impressive and the staff made me feel geuinely valued. If you are need of a optomerty needs this is the place, you will get excellent service and great eye care selections. I was extremely satisfied and would recommend them to anyone.



The last time I needed to renew my prescription and have an eye exam done, I decided to go outside of my HMO and see Dr Derron Lee. Best decision I could have made. Dr Lee and his staff are terrific not only in this location but in Manteca as well. Dr Lee asked all the right questions, then gave me thorough eye exam followed by recommendations and an explanation for the recommendations. How awesome is that? All my questions were pretty much answered before I asked ! He set me up with some contact lenses that were better AND less expensive than what I was using, his staff helped me pick out some great computer glasses and gave me a great deal on those as well. Overall it was a terrific experience and I highly recommend Midtown Optometry/Manteca optometry. I forgot to mention I can see really well now too !

Thanks so much !
