John Michaelos, MD

Dr. John Michaelos started his practice in 1997 and brought with him the skills needed for new technologies that were available for laser vision correction, improved techniques for cataract surgery and new cosmetic procedures. He continues to keep up to date with the latest in technology through continuing education. St. Michael’s Eye and Laser Institute is the only center in North Florida to be honored as an Alcon Center of Excellence. Dr. Michaelos was one of the first ten physician in Florida to implant the Multi-Focal lens, known as ReStor, making him one of the most experienced in the area.

Dr. John Michaelos is the surgeon many of your friends and neighbors have trusted to improve their vision and create the flattering new face they happily show the world every day. It’s a tradition of excellence that was instilled in Dr. John by his father, Dr. Louis Michaelos, one of the area’s most respected Ophthalmologists for over 50 years. St. Michael’s will continue to grow, but will never outgrow our very valued patients.
