St. Louis, Missouri -

Dr. Jason Brinton, of Brinton Vision in St. Louis, spoke on HLN Morning Express with CNN’s Robin Meade about the new FDA LASIK surgery checklist. The checklist was drafted as a way to keep patients informed of potential side effects and risks of the procedure.

Dr. Brinton offers LASIK surgery, and six LASIK alternative procedures, including EVO ICL, PRK, and Refractive Lens Exchange. He explains that the FDA’s checklist is in place to bring more information to patients and ensure they are provided with all of their options. Dr. Brinton also emphasized the benefits of LASIK, especially in regards to glasses and contacts.

He noted that “LASIK can give better vision than glasses or contacts, but most experts believe that it’s safer than contact lens wear,” due to the consistent introduction of bacteria and external stimuli when putting in and taking out contact lenses. Dr. Brinton also mentioned a motto used at Brinton Vision: “an informed patient is a happy patient.” Dr. Brinton and his staff always start each patient with a thorough eye exam to ensure they will be getting the procedure that will work best for their eyes, keeping them informed through the whole process.
