Scrushy today announced that three eye surgeons working at HEALTHSOUTH Medical Center in Birmingham have developed a breakthrough in surgery for the macular center of vision.
5 million people in the United States over age 50 are thought to have some surface scarring or wrinkling of the macular center of vision, a pinhead sized part of the retina film (figure 1).
To operate on the center of vision, Morris and Witherspoon use only the latest model Carl Zeiss microscopes, imported from Germany, for precise viewing and maximum light transmission.
