Marc Michelson, M.D., Medical Director of Alabama Eye & Cataract Center and Michelson Laser Vision is pleased to announce that Corneal Specialist Tyler Hall, M.D. has joined the ophthalmology staff at their practice. Dr. Michelson commented, “With Dr. Hall joining our practice we are able to expand upon our tradition of providing world class diagnosis and treatment of corneal disease, including advanced corneal transplantation procedures such as DSEK and DALK for Fuch’s Dystrophy and Keratoconus, to our community. Further, his experience in Laser Eye Surgery such as Bladeless LASIK will be a welcome addition in helping to meet the patient demand for Laser Vision Correction in Birmingham.”
Tyler Hall, M.D. is a Corneal Specialist who is a Cataract and Refractive Surgeon at Alabama Eye & Cataract Center and Michelson Laser Vision where he performs all types of Laser Eye Surgery for the Laser Vision Correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism including All Laser Bladeless LASIK, Custom Wavefront Optimized LASIK, monovision LASIK and PRK. In addition, Dr. Hall provides his patients with the most modern Cataract Surgery in Birmingham that requires only a very tiny incision, no patches and only eye drops for anesthesia so that his patients can benefit from very quick visual recovery times, with minimal interruption in their daily routines. Dr. Hall is committed to helping patients with Cataracts achieve greater independence and possibly eliminate the need for eyeglasses, reading glasses or bifocals after Cataract Surgery through the use of astigmatism correcting toric lens implants. For those patients with significant amounts of astigmatism, near vision multifocal and accommodating presbyopia correcting lens implants, such as the Crystalens® Accommodating Lens Implant, the AcrySof® ReSTOR® Multifocal Lens Implant and the Tecnis™ Multifocal Lens Implant, are used to have their distance, arm’s length and near vision corrected after Cataract Surgery without eyeglasses, bifocals or reading glasses.
Dr. Hall earned his Medical Degree at the Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio where he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. He then completed his Residency in Ophthalmology at the University of Alabama (UAB)-Birmingham where he served as Chief Resident followed by a Fellowship in Cornea, External Disease and Refractive Surgery at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia where he obtained specialized training and experience in all types of Refractive Surgery including LASIK Surgery and advanced Lens Implants for Vision Correction. Dr. Hall is certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and is a member of The Cornea Society, American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS).
