Dr. Michael Morris will be joining TEI in 2019 as a comprehensive ophthalmologist. His main practice focus is cataract surgery offering patients the most up-to-date lens implant options. This includes astigmatism correcting Toric lenses as well as extended depth of focus lenses including Restor & Tecnis Multifocal lenses. He also provides a full range of general adult medical and surgical eye care that includes evaluating and treating patients with dry eye, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and various other eye disorders.
Dr. Morris completed his medical training at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. He performed his internship and ophthalmology training at one of the top programs in the country at Baylor Scott & White/Texas A&M in Temple, Texas where he served as Chief Resident. He became Board certified in Ophthalmology in 2012. He is also a professional member of the American College of Surgeons, American Academy of Ophthalmology, American Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons, Missouri Society of Eye Physicians & Surgeons, and the Christian Ophthalmology Society.
Dr. Morris grew up in Southern Illinois and is glad to be returning to general ophthalmology practice in the same area after working for 8 years in southeastern Missouri. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and six children as well as biking, swimming, hunting, and medical missions. Dr. Morris and his family are active members of their local church, and he has participated in multiple Christian ophthalmology mission trips to Haiti.
