Michael A. Brusco, MD, FACS, is the founder and medical director of Brusco Vision – the premier practice dedicated to changing lives through vision correction in Washington DC, and the DMV.
He is a board-certified and award-winning refractive surgery subspecialist who has successfully performed over 40,000 corneal-based vision correction procedures, such as high-definition all-laser LASIK and PRK. In addition, he has performed over 5,000 lens-based procedures including Visian ICL, refractive cataract surgery, and refractive lens exchange (RLE or Custom Lens Replacement).
Dr. Brusco was awarded the STAAR Top 100 International Surgeon honor multiple years and is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons, the American Medical Association, and the Refractive Surgery Alliance. He is a founding member of the World College of Refractive Surgery & Visual Sciences, an organization that aims to establish standards in curriculum, education, and training to improve the quality of refractive surgery on a global scale. Most recently, Dr. Brusco personally was performing close to 1% of all LASIK procedures in the US annually.
Dr. Brusco graduated with honors from Harvard College, in the top quartile of his class. At Harvard, he first became interested in the complexities of sight as a research assistant in the visual cognition lab of one of the world’s experts on attentional dysfunction. Dr. Brusco then obtained his medical degree from Northwestern, with multiple clinical clerkship honors, and completed his ophthalmology residency at the University of Kansas. While at the University of Kansas, he was considered to be one of the most prolific and accomplished residents in the program’s storied history. Dr. Brusco performed more eye surgeries than 97% of his colleagues nationally and scored higher than 96% of all ocular surgeons on the national board certification exam. After graduation, Dr. Brusco spent six intensive months learning more sophisticated and complex surgical techniques from many of the most innovative eye surgeons to further enhance his skills and knowledge base.
Before moving to the DMV, Dr. Brusco spent two years as a civilian staff ophthalmologist at Fort Riley, one of the busiest army installations in the US. At Fort Riley, he was selected and entrusted to perform vision correction surgery on engineers, fellow surgeons, JAGs, special forces members, platoon commanders, and pilots, among many others, under the auspices of the warfighter refractive eye surgery program (WRESP). It was a pleasure to serve his country in this manner.
Although Dr. Brusco maintains a lifestyle that is committed to surgical and academic excellence, he is most proud of the patients he has the privilege of helping on a daily basis. The goal at Brusco Vision is to provide a custom treatment plan tailored for each patient to attain optimal vision in a comfortable and stress-free environment.
