A renowned expert in LASIK, St. Louis eye surgeon Jason Brinton, MD, was a featured speaker at STAAR Surgical’s first surgical symposium.
St. Louis, Missouri – Dr. Jason Brinton, founder of Brinton Vision, shared his expertise with eye surgeons at the inaugural STAAR Surgical U.S. Surgeon Council Summit in Dallas, Texas. The recent event featured leading eye surgeons from around the word, and Dr. Brinton was among a small handful of U.S. LASIK surgeons invited to present at the event.
“The exclusive event was by invitation only and included approximately 50 key thought leaders, premier surgeons, and progressive practices from around the country and internationally. Those in attendance were interested in learning more about lens-based correction of refractive errors and how to incorporate the Visian ICL into their practices from clinical and business perspectives,” explained Rex Chandler, STAAR’s vice president of global strategic marketing. “Dr. Brinton, being among the highest volume and most experienced Visian ICL surgeons in the United States, presented his findings to both his domestic and international colleagues.”
Brinton Vision specializes in LASIK surgery, as well as six modern LASIK variations: Visian Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL), SBK, ASA, SMILE, KAMRA Inlay, and refractive lens exchange (RLE). Dr. Brinton is recognized internationally for his expertise in LASIK and refractive surgery, and was the first surgeon in the United States to implant the Visian Toric ICL.
“We’ve had a wonderful relationship with STAAR Surgical, which is not just mutually beneficial to our businesses but also extremely good for our patients,” said Dr. Brinton. “STAAR has been an innovator in vision correction for a very long time and their leadership has given Brinton Vision opportunities to advance vision correction surgery in St. Louis and the surrounding counties. Our patients are seeing better results with fewer side effects than in the past.”
STAAR Surgical Company was the first to develop a foldable interocular lens (IOL), as well as the biocompatible implantable collamer lens (ICL). To date, more than 1 million of these lenses have been implanted worldwide to treat myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.
A graduate of Harvard Medical School, Dr. Brinton is also board-certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and is considered among the most experienced LASIK vision correction surgeons in the country. He has been ranked among America’s Top Ophthalmologists, the Leading Physicians of the World, and the Top Doctors in America. Most recently, Dr. Brinton was a featured speaker before 250 international surgeons at the STAAR Surgical 16th Annual EVO Visian ICL Experts Summit in Paris, France, and the only practicing U.S. LASIK surgeon to present.
