UAB Excellence Award to Marc Michelson, M.D.

The UAB National Alumni Society honored Marc Michelson, M.D. with the UAB Excellence in Business Top 25 Class of 2015 Award. Dr. Michelson is the Founder and Medical Director of Michelson LaserVision, Inc. and Alabama Eye & Cataract Center, P.C., located at UAB Highlands on the medical center campus.

“On behalf of myself and my staff who work to make every patient visit, every LASIK treatment, and every laser cataract surgery and lens implant procedure a pleasant experience with great clinical results, we want to say thank you,” shared Dr. Michelson. “UAB has been an integral part of the fabric and culture of the eye care we have provided in Birmingham for more than 30 years. Being part of the UAB community started with being educated and trained right here as a medical student, then an ophthalmology resident and continuing as an Associate Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at the UAB School of Medicine. I have thoroughly enjoyed not only the patient care, but also the opportunity to participate in resident teaching, research, and implementation of new and innovative technologies. These opportunities have motivated me to continually bring advanced eye surgery techniques and technology for vision correction, such as Bladeless LASIK and laser cataract surgery, right into our facilities at Alabama Eye and Cataract Center, P.C. and Michelson Laser Vision, Inc. at UAB Highlands,” explained Dr. Michelson.

The UAB National Alumni Society has chosen Dr. Michelson to receive the UAB Excellence in Business Top 25 Class of 2015 award.  This award program is designed to identify, recognize, and celebrate the success of the top 25 UAB alumni-owned or UAB alumni-operated businesses.
