Dr. Byrd was born in Trenton, MI, and attended Trenton High School. After graduating, he earned his bachelor of science and medical doctorate degrees at the University of Michigan.

During his two-year tenure in this program, he mentored under Drs. Herbert E. Kaufman and Maguerite McDonald, trailblazers in the arena of laser vision correction. In addition, he was also chosen as co-investigator for an FDA study on the efficacy and safety of the VISX™ laser.

Dr. Byrd then went on to serve as the Director of Cornea Service at the Henry Ford Health System, sharing his knowledge with students and other surgeons.
