Prior to his current appointment, Dr Lee Hung Ming was formerly the Head of LASIK surgery in 2 of Singapore’s premier hospitals — Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) and National University Hospital (NUH). Unbeknownst to many, he decided to become an eye specialist after losing his grandmother to eye disease and blindness.

A sought-after speaker at many international and regional eye meetings, Dr Lee was awarded the ACE Award, the highest educator award for training Asia-Pacific surgeons in cataract and refractive surgery, by the Asia-Pacific Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgery in 1994.

During his school days, he was the state badminton player for his hometown in Kelantan, Malaysia. Subsequently, he moved to Singapore to study under an ASEAN Scholarship. While in University, he played 6 sports for NUS Medical Faculty and captained the NUS Badminton Team. Apparently, he spent all his time on a badminton court, or courting his wife, a fellow medical student. They are now happily married with 4 children.
