Cataract & Vision Correction Laser Eye Care at UAB Highlands

Laser eye care for cataract surgery and vision correction is now available under one roof at UAB Hospital-Highlands.  Michelson Laser Vision, Inc. and Alabama Eye & Cataract Center, P.C. are now located together at UAB Hospital-Highlands in the medical center district in Birmingham. “We brought these two practices together under one roof in order to give patients more convenient access to the full range of advanced laser eye surgery technology and procedures available for vision correction in one location. That includes the laser vision correction procedures such as LASIK for common vision problems such as nearsightedness and astigmatism, but also laser cataract surgery,” explained Marc Michelson, M.D.  “Today, our patients want the precision and reproducibility of surgeon controlled laser eye surgery whether it be for cataracts or nearsightedness,” noted Tyler Hall, M.D. “World class eye care requires being able to deliver the gentle precision achieved with lasers whether it be for common vision problems or age related problems such as for cataract surgery and lens implants,” further explained Dr. Hall.

Dr. Michelson of Michelson Laser Vision, Inc. has been a pioneer in laser eye surgery, and was the first surgeon in the state of Alabama to provide laser vision correction in Birmingham in 1991. Alabama Eye & Cataract Center, P.C. has been providing routine and complex cataract surgery and lens implants in Birmingham since 1999. “By combining the collective 38 years of surgeon and organizational expertise, experience and reputation into one clinical operation we are working to highlight that patients can have the confidence and trust that they have world class laser eye care for their vision correction needs-right here in Birmingham,” said Dr. Michelson.

Michelson Laser Vision, Inc. and Alabama Eye & Cataract Center, Inc. are located at UAB Hospital-Highlands, 1201 11th Avenue South, Suite #501, Birmingham, AL 35205.
