About Dr. Watson

Dr. Watson's medical practice focuses on providing expert diagnosis and treatment for conditions of the retina.

Before starting his practice in Alabama, Dr. Watson was faculty at Harvard Medical School and he had a retina practice with the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. During this time Dr. Watson and his wife had a growing family of little children so they decided to move to his wife's hometown in Alabama. While working in the Northeast Dr. Watson also volunteered at a Veterans Affairs Hospital where Dr. Watson proudly provided free care to the great veterans who served this country. During that time Dr. Watson was also a part-time teacher to residents of Brown University's medical school.

Dr. Watson's current practice uses the latest therapies and advanced medical equipment to help patients achieve their best vision possible. Cutting-edge medications are used to treat macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease. For conditions that requires surgery, Dr. Watson operates at the Callahan Eye Hospital. For conditions that can be treated in the office with a laser, Dr. Watson has a laser system that is highly effective and more comfortable than many conventional laser systems. Dr. Watson's office has lots of free parking immediately outside the office doors. There is no need to use a parking garage or even take an elevator, everything is on the first floor just a few steps from the parking area.

Dr. Watson completed medical school and residency at Tulane University. He completed a fellowship in retina surgery at West Virginia University. Dr. Watson is a diplomate of the American Board of Ophthalmology and is a member of many national medical societies. 

Outside of the office Dr. Watson enjoys spending time with his wife and children and going on adventures with them in the great outdoors.
