Dr. John S. Jarstad, MD

Ophthalmology | Male | 61 years old

After performing over 25,000 cataract procedures and thousands of LASIK and refractive procedures I have decided to return to teaching those skills and lending my expertise to the next generation of eye surgeons by accepting a full-time professorship at University of Missouri School of Medicine. I am thoroughly enjoying working with some of the world's leading researchers such as our Chairman Rick Fraunfelder, perhaps the world's expert in DMEK (a new fast recovery technique for cornea transplantation), Dr. Jella An, a world-class glaucoma surgeon and our research team of Drs. Mohan and Sharma, leading PhD's in eye research. These are just four of our world-class physicians and research scientists that will make headlines in the years to come.Read more
