Saint Louisans to be First in Country to Have Access to New Vision-Correcting Technology at Brinton Vision
Saint Louisans suffering from nearsightedness and astigmatism looking to improve their vision will soon have a new procedure available to them – and before anyone else in the country. Tuesday afternoon the FDA approved the Visian EVO ICL for the correction of refractive error in patients with nearsightedness and astigmatism, both common conditions in the United States.
“Each week we see patients who will greatly benefit from the EVO ICL,” said Jason P. Brinton, MD. “We are thrilled Brinton Vision will be the first private practice in the country to offer this state-of-the art medical technology to help these patients achieve visual freedom.”
STAAR Surgical, the developer of the Visian EVO ICL, has authorized Brinton Vision to make the procedure available to patients beginning November 1. Dr. Brinton said the Visian EVO ICL is an implantable lens that has been used outside of the United States for years helping more than 750,000 patients improve their eyesight.
Brinton Vision is a state-of-the-art laser facility located in Creve Coeur just off of I-270 and Olive Rd. The practice is dedicated to one goal – changing lives through the priceless gift of sight. Dr. Jason P. Brinton is the only full-time refractive surgeon in the State of Missouri who specializes in LASIK and its six modern variations, including SBK, ReLEX SMILE, Visian Toric ICL, KAMRA Inlay, RLE, LAL and the EVO ICL as of November 1, 2021. Brinton Vision employs the most advanced, proven technology found anywhere to correct vision, even in patients who have been told they are not a candidate for LASIK. Dr. Jason P. Brinton is a graduate of Harvard Medical School, board-certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology, and is among the most experienced refractive surgeons in the United States.
