Laser Eye Surgery Experience You Can Trust!
Marc Michelson, M.D. has been performing laser vision correction for over 28 years. In 1989 Dr. Michelson became the 5th Clinical Investigator in the United States to study the safety and efficacy of the Summit Technology Excimer Laser for vision correction. Dr. Michelson performed the first excimer laser treatment in Birmingham using the laser to treat glaucoma. The first myopic-nearsighted-vision correction procedure in Alabama, PRK (Photorefractive Keratoplasty), was performed by Dr. Michelson in 1991 and the rest is history. Dr. Michelson and his staff continued to conduct numerous clinical trials including some of the initial LASIK studies beginning in 1995. When the FDA approved the excimer laser for Photorefractive Keratectomy in 1994 and LASIK in 1999, Dr. Michelson and his staff were already on the forefront of innovation in laser vision correction. Michelson Laser Vision, Inc. was established in 1999 to provide laser vision correction in Birmingham with “World Class Care” offering patients the best technology available to reduce or eliminate the need for eyeglasses and contact lenses.
