Dr. Jason P. Brinton is committed to patient excellence and treating each person like family. His practice philosophy has always been to select the best procedure for each patient rather than guide patients into the path of a single refractive procedure.
At the annual meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology he is a regular course instructor for the class that trains other physicians in LASIK and refractive surgery technique. Dr. Brinton has taught multiple fellows in refractive surgery and is engaged by the manufacturers of five refractive ophthalmic lasers to teach and certify other doctors in their use.
He serves as an Associate Faculty Member in Refractive Surgery for Faculty of 1000, a global peer review publisher that assesses the impact of scientific papers in the literature. Dr. Brinton has been an investigator in nine U.S. Food and Drug Administration clinical trials, is an editorial board member for Ocular Surgery News, and sat for a term on the governing board of the New England Journal of Medicine, the only living ophthalmologist to do so.
Meet my family, the biggest part of my life.
Jami and I met during medical school. Prior to being a mom, Jami was a TV news anchor/reporter in Iowa City and Kansas City and co-chaired the initial campaign that elected Utah Governor Jon M. Huntsman, Jr. She traded in her microphone and high heels for a stroller and bag of soccer balls as we welcomed four children into our home: Jackson, Kate, Alexa, and Thomas.
Meet Jackson, our 9-year-old who loves to ski, swim, and play soccer with his friends. When he grows up he wants to be a paleontologist so he can dig for dinosaur bones.
Our 7-year-old daughter, Kate, enjoys wakeboarding, art class, reading, swimming, and anything involving science. Her dream is to be like her papa.
Alexa is 4 and loves animals. She loves to talk to our neighbor’s dog or watch the bunny eat our flowers in the backyard. She’s a protective sister who dotes on her siblings, keeps us all laughing and loves gymnastics.
Thomas, our toddler, has made our busy household a bit more crazy. He loves to laugh and talk and is easily the center of attention wherever we go.
