The Power List 2016

Daniel Durrie

Founder and President, Durrie Vision, Overland Park, Kansas

Durrie founded the Lions Eye Bank of Nebraska in 1979, and has served on the board of directors of the International Society of Refractive Surgery. As founder and president of Durrie Vision, he aimed to create a world-class surgery center providing the most advanced technologies possible. Research has played a pivotal role in his career, and his center was one of the few in the US chosen to conduct FDA clinical trials. Durrie was also involved either as an investigator or as a medical monitor on nearly every clinical trial that led to FDA approval of a laser technology and procedures used in laser vision correction today. He has participated in over 150 FDA clinical studies, and trains surgeons from around the world on new surgical procedures and techniques.
