Evergreen Eye Center Introduces Groundbreaking Leica M22 Surgical Microscope for Cataract Surgery to the US

FEDERAL WAY, Wash., Jan 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. John Jarstad, Founder of Evergreen Eye Center, was the first US surgeon to use the new, Leica M822 Swiss microscope. The M822 is the latest version of micro surgical imaging systems which includes an ultra high definition video camera. Dr. Jarstad recently completed the first 50 cataract procedures in the USA using the M822.

"This new surgical microscope has taken eye surgery to another level. The resolution and HD effects of this device will improve patient outcomes and safety by allowing never before seen details during eye operations." Dr. Jarstad compared the details of the new microscope to HDTV or 3D Movies compared to the older style of standard television.

"This microscope will revolutionize the practice of modern eye surgery and provide an extra margin of safety for the surgeon by providing unmatched clarity and definition to the microscopic world we eye surgeons work in," said Dr. Jarstad.

Dr. Jarstad and Evergreen Eye Center are no strangers to innovation and medical firsts. Dr. Jarstad was the first surgeon in Washington to perform cataract surgery without stitches and is the inventor of the Jarstad cataract surgery marker. He was among one of the first surgeons to perform LASIK in the United States starting in 1996. Dr. Jarstad is a graduate of Brigham Young University, UW School of Medicine, and the Mayo Clinic.
