Alabama Eye and Cataract Center Staff: Alena Samal

Alabama Eye and Cataract Center brings excellence from around the world! Ophthalmic Technician, Alena Samal, graduated with honors from Minsk Medical College in Belarus, a small country in Europe. Her advanced degree in Nursing led her to work as an Ophthalmic Nurse for seven years before moving to the United States in 2008. She joined the staff at University of Alabama in Birmingham, assisting in research for the Department of Neurology. In November of 2010, Alena joined Dr. Michelson’s practice to further her experience and interest in Ophthalmology. Her expertise in the field allowed her to quickly adapt and support the staff, while her kind personality has made a positive impression on patients. Alena hopes to someday attend optometry school and earn a degree as a Doctor of Optometry.
