New Web Site from Michelson Laser Vision, Inc. & Alabama Eye & Cataract Center, P.C.

Michelson Laser Vision, Inc. and Alabama Eye & Cataract Center, P.C. have released a new patient information and education web site.

    BIRMINGHAM, AL, August 20, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The web site provides patients with information and facts about all aspects of eye diseases and surgery and in particular includes information about vision correction procedures such as bladeless LASIK eye surgery, laser cataract surgery and advanced technology cataract lens implants that correct astigmatism and near vision focusing problems after cataract surgery so that patients can avoid the hassle of eyeglasses.

"We felt strongly that we needed to use our web site to share information with patients who are at risk of suffering vision loss from cataracts. By understanding more about cataract surgery and lens implants, we are hopeful that patients will not allow vision loss from a cataract to interfere with their daily activities, driving, mobility and overall quality of life," commented Marc Michelson, M.D., a Corneal Specialist, Cataract & Refractive Surgeon. "We also see a real need for patients with cataracts to have access to the latest information on lens implants we can use to correct both astigmatism and near vision focusing problems," explained Corneal Specialist, Cataract & Refractive Surgeon Tyler Hall, M.D.

"We know that patients like to use the web to learn about the different types of LASIK surgery such as bladeless LASIK," commented Dr. Michelson. "We also know is that it is important for them have information about the corneal diseases, conditions and problems that might preclude them from being good LASIK candidates-so we provide this on our new web site," explained Dr. Hall. "We encourage patients to read and learn as much as they can on the web by visiting our new site -but we also strongly encourage them to come in and have a free consultation so we can help determine whether they are good candidates and whether LASIK is indeed a good vision correction option for them," 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.

About Michelson Laser Vision, Inc.
It all began in 1989 when Dr. Michelson was appointed to become the fifth clinical investigator in the United States to conduct Phase 3 clinical trials with Summit Technology to perform some of the first laser vision correction procedures in the world. In that year, Dr. Michelson performed the very first excimer laser treatment in Birmingham, Alabama using the laser to treat a glaucoma patient. The first myopic 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 Keratoplasty 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 with "World Class Care" offering patients the best technology available to reduce or eliminate their needs for corrective eyewear. Michelson Laser Vision, Inc. has kept the pace of technological advancement in laser vision correction. Since 1999, we have upgraded and utilized over five generations of lasers to ensure that our patients have access to the most advanced laser technology. In 2014, Michelson Laser Vision, Inc. relocated to The Medical Center at UAB Highlands on the campus of the University of Alabama (UAB) in Birmingham.
