2020 was an unusual year for many. Quarantines, masks, and social distancing made it unforgettable. At Brinton Vision we have one goal, no matter the time of year: to give the priceless gift of sight. Seeing patients’ lives transformed on a daily basis makes us smile. As we usher in a new year, we invite you to nominate someone you feel is deserving of clear, natural eyesight free of their glasses and contact lenses. Your nominee could be a teacher, a community leader, a healthcare provider, a parent, or someone who has made a difference in your life. Tell us what they have done for you or for our community.
To qualify, the nominated contestant must be between the ages of 15 and 105; wear glasses, contacts, or readers for nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia; reside in the greater St. Louis Metro area; be available to visit our St. Louis LASIK center for their eye surgery and required follow-up visits; be available to have the procedure prior to April 30, 2021; and purchase the postoperative eye drops to be used following treatment (usually covered by medical/health insurance). Finalists will be provided our Brinton Vision Ocular Analysis, our 90-minute consultation valued at $240, compliments of our staff. Brinton Vision’s doctors will determine, at their sole discretion, if an individual meets the medical qualifications for LASIK or vision correction surgery. Visian ICL, EVO ICL, SMILE, refractive lens exchange (RLE), and KAMRA vision correction procedures are not covered as part of this contest. Contestants who wear toric, rigid, hard, or gas permeable contact lenses are advised to remove their lenses and wear glasses by January 4, 2021, two weeks prior to the entry deadline. The individual who is nominating, as well as the nominee, agree to have their story shared on social media and in the St. Louis press.
