Meet Dr. Mitchell of Huntsville Laser Center

Dr. William N. Mitchell grew up in Auburn, Alabama. He attended the University of Arizona where he graduated Magna Cum Laude, and returned to Alabama to attend medical school at the University of Alabama in Birmingham. He then trained in Ophthalmology at the University of Tennessee at Memphis where he finished his residency. In 1999 Dr. Mitchell joined Dr. Robert Maynor in private practice forming the Maynor & Mitchell Eye Center. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Mitchell founded the Huntsville Laser Center making a commitment to Laser Vision Correction by establishing the first facility in North Alabama to have a fixed-site VISX Excimer Laser System.

Dr. Mitchell’s interest in refractive surgery began early in his life. Having worn glasses or contact lenses since his early teenage years, he underwent the Lasik procedure himself in November 1999. Dr. Mitchell has performed over 6,000 procedures to date, and was the first to offer Lasik in Huntsville.

Dr. Mitchell is a Board Certified Ophthalmologist, and is also a Member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons, and the International Society of Refractive Surgery.
