Dr. Tersigni then completed a fellowship in anterior segment and refractive surgery under the mentorship of world-renowned vision correction surgeon, Dr. Y. Ralph Chu, at the Chu Vision Institute in Minneapolis, MN. Here, he was trained in the full spectrum of vision correction solutions. Before founding Tersigni Vision, Dr. Tersigni worked in St. Louis at Brinton Vision, one of the premier vision correction centers in the country, where patients traveled from across the United States to have their vision correction procedure performed.

In addition to being a surgeon, Dr. Tersigni is an educator and researcher.

Dr. Tersigni is a refractive surgery patient himself. He was the first patient in the US to have the EVO Toric ICL implanted in his own eye. This was after being told many years ago that he was not a good candidate for LASIK.

Dr. Tersigni and his wife Kayla both grew up on the Oregon coast and love raising their children together in the Portland area.”
