Jason E. Stahl, MD, and Jason P. Brinton, MD, are board-certified ophthalmologists who specialize in cataract surgery and refractive intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. Dr. Stahl is the head of the refractive lens department at Durrie Vision, a state-of-the art ophthalmology treatment and research facility. Dr. Stahl is highly regarded in his field. In 2007 he received the American Academy of Ophthalmology Achievement Award and in 2009 he was named one of Ingram's magazine's "40 under Forty." Dr. Brinton is a Harvard-educated, third-generation ophthalmologist.
The surgeons at Durrie Vision utilize the most advanced diagnostic and treatment technology in order to provide advanced cataract surgery with premium intraocular lenses (IOLs), as well as LASIK and other laser eye surgeries. Durrie Vision is one of the few facilities in the United States authorized to conduct FDA clinical trials, and Dr. Stahl has been an investigator on numerous research studies. Durrie Vision's motto is "Patients First," and the staff is committed to ensuring that each patient's individual needs are the top priority throughout the treatment process.
When performing cataract surgery, Dr. Stahl or Dr. Brinton provides a topical or local anesthetic as well as a mild sedative to prepare the patient for surgery. Next, the eye surgeon creates a small incision in the cornea. Ultrasound is used to break the cataract-damaged lens into minute particles, which are then removed from the eye through the incision. Once the natural lens is removed, Dr. Stahl or Dr. Brinton inserts the intraocular lens implant into position. The surgery is not painful, and in most cases no sutures are needed because the incision is small and self-healing. Following surgery, the patient is required to use antibiotic and anti-inflammatory drops for a few weeks as the eye heals.
For patients undergoing cataract surgery, Dr. Stahl and Dr. Brinton offer the latest premium IOLs, including ReSTOR, ReZoom and Tecnis. These multifocal lenses treat both nearsightedness and age-related farsightedness, or presbyopia. Dr. Stahl and Dr. Brinton can also implant Crystalens, a type of accommodating lens that shifts its position in response to movements of the eye's muscles, allowing sharper vision at various distances. In addition, Dr. Stahl and Dr. Brinton offer single-focused lenses. The AcrySof Toric lens is a single-focused lens that treats astigmatism. Aspheric lenses are a type of single-focused IOL designed to improve contrast sensitivity. With so many choices available, the eye surgeon will assist each patient to select the lenses that best meet their individual eye-care needs.
