St. Louis-Based Brinton Vision Ranks No. 1 in Visian ICL Surgery

October 21, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - St. Louis, Missouri – Brinton Vision in St. Louis has taken the top spot nationally in the implantation of the Visian Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL), sometimes called an implantable contact lens, used for the treatment of myopia and astigmatism. Founder Jason Brinton, MD, and his staff implanted more than 240 ICLs in 2018 – more than any other LASIK and refractive surgery provider in the United States.

Dr. Brinton is internationally recognized for his expertise in LASIK and vision correction surgery and was the first U.S. surgeon to perform the Visian Toric ICL and SMILE procedures after U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval.

“LASIK surgery is highly effective but we get a lot of patients who’ve been told they weren’t candidates for LASIK,” said Dr. Brinton. “That’s why I felt it was so important to offer LASIK plus all six of the modern LASIK alternatives. If you look at a group of people wearing glasses, everyone’s glasses are different. In the same way, every eye is unique, so the preferred method of vision correction surgery is going to be different for different patients.”

Brinton Vision is the only full-time LASIK and vision correction surgery center in the state of Missouri specializing in LASIK plus all six of its modern variations. In addition to LASIK and Visian ICL, Brinton Vision provides ASA, SMILE, KAMRA® Inlay, and refractive lens exchange (RLE).

The Visian ICL is a biocompatible lens placed in the eye in a simple, 15-minute procedure. It can be a good option for patients with thin corneas and high astigmatism. During the procedure, an ICL is placed next to the eye’s natural lens – behind the iris – to correct imperfections that cause vision problems. The patient’s natural lens remains intact and the surgeon does not need to remove any tissue. ICLs are not visible to others and can deliver crisp and sharp vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands — The International Criminal Court sentenced a Congolese warlord known as "The Terminator" to 30 years imprisonment Thursday after he was convicted of crimes including murder, rape and sexual slavery. The sentence was the highest ever passed by the global court.

Ntaganda showed no emotion as Presiding Judge Robert Fremr passed sentences ranging from eight years to 30...

STOCKHOLM — The Latest on the awarding of the 2019 Nobel Prizes (all times local): 1:55 p.m. Olga Tokarczuk's Polish publishers say they are "overjoyed" by the awarding of the Nobel Prize in literature to a writer they have worked with for 18 years.

Tory leader grilled on abortion in Canadian election debate

Jun 6, 2020

TORONTO — Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and opposition party leaders grilled the leader of the Conservative party Wednesday night on his personal beliefs on abortion in Trudeau’s first debate of the campaign for this month’s elections. Trudeau wasn’t asked about photos of him appearing in brownface and blackface years ago despite it making headlines around the world just two weeks ago. The controversy hasn’t led to a drop in the polls for Trudeau. At the French-language debate in Montreal, Trudeau and the leaders of other opposition parties tried to corner opposition Conservative leader Andrew Scheer on his personal position...

Parachutists jump over Dutch heath to mark WWII operation

Jun 6, 2020

GINKEL HEATH, Netherlands — Hundreds of parachutists have floated out of clear blue skies in the eastern Netherlands to commemorate the 75th anniversary of a daring but ultimately unsuccessful World War II mission that Allied commanders hoped would bring a swift end to the global conflict. Operation Market Garden was British Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery's ill-fated plan to drop some 35,000 paratroopers deep behind enemy lines in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands to capture and secure key roads and bridges, so that Allied forces massed in Belgium could pour into Germany's industrial heartland and bring World War II to an end. On...

Trudeau's support holds after apology for wearing brownface

Jun 6, 2020

TORONTO — Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau acknowledged Friday that he let down his supporters — and all Canadians of color — by appearing years ago in brownface and blackface. Yet the scandal's fallout may be limited in a country without the harsh and still-divisive racial history of the neighboring United States. "I hurt people who in many cases consider me an ally," Trudeau told a news conference. "I let a lot of people down." Trudeau, 47, is seeking a second term as prime minister in an Oct. 21 election. His leading opponent, Andrew Scheer of the Conservative Party, has...
