Birmingham Cataract Surgeon and Corneal Specialist Marc Michelson, M.D. of Alabama Eye & Cataract Center. Throughout his 50+ year career in the music industry leading the Charlie Daniels Band, he has scored hits on the rock, country, pop and Christian charts, and is a member of the Grand Ole Opry. Charlie put out the word that he would be a little “slack” over the next week as he recovered from his Cataract Surgery. "Modern cataract surgery is really pretty patient friendly in that we use a very tiny incision through which we both remove the cataract and place a lens implant to correct the vision. For most patients we are able to use only eye drops for anesthesia and thus recovery from modern cataract surgery is typically comfortable and brief," said Dr. Michelson.
“From my 30+ plus years experience as a Cataract Surgeon I as well as all his fans are confident that with his doctor’s guidance, his recovery from Cataract Surgery will be quick and that Charlie will be back entertaining us shortly,” said Dr. Michelson.
