MST Timeline


MicroSurgical Technology is Founded

MST was founded by Dr. David J. McIntyre, an ophthalmologist in Bellevue, WA. Dr. McIntyre partnered with a trained jeweler, Isidro Nilsson, to create finely crafted devices for Irrigation and Aspiration in cataract surgery. We have continued the legacy of finely crafted devices with jeweler-like precision for over 40 years.


MST Develops InterTip

As MST began to grow, we established our position in the market, as a premier OEM manufacturer of Irrigation and Aspiration devices. The development of InterTip, an innovative I/A system with a variety of interchangeable heads, took the market by storm.


MST Launches Duet BiManual

MST built a legacy of developing products that were inspired by surgeons with the launch of Duet BiManual. The variety of aspirating choppers featured some of the most prominent names in ophthalmology, such as: Fine, Agarwal, Lindstrom, Olson, and many more.


MST Micro-Instrumentation is Introduced

MST revolutionized the instrument market with the introduction of MST Micro-Instruments. With the influence of ophthalmologists such as Ike Ahmed, MD; David Chang, MD; Rich Hoffman, MD and more, MST was able to create one of the most innovative instrument collections in ophthalmology.


MST Brings the Malyugin Ring to Market

Perhaps the greatest innovation in modern cataract surgery was developed by Boris Malyugin, MD. MST worked with Dr. Malyugin to bring his vision to life, and introduced the Malyugin Ring. The Malyugin Ring changed the way ophthalmologists managed small pupils and IFIS: making complicated procedures seem routine.


MST Acquired by Halma

MST was acquired by UK-based, Halma in December 2012. Joining Halma provided MST with the support of a strong corporate partner. Halma owns several companies within ophthalmology giving them a unique perspective into staying on the forefront of new technology in the industry.


The Osher Modification is Added to the Malyugin Ring Injector

MST has always strived to bring constant innovation to ophthalmology. The Malyugin Ring has undergone several revisions over its years on the market. Most notable was working with Bobby Osher, MD to add the Osher modification to the injector. Dr. Osher’s innovative idea helped improve the method of insertion and removal for the Malyugin Ring.


The 1,000,000th Malyugin Ring is Shipped

One most notable moments in MST history was the shipment of the 1,000,000th Malyugin Ring. MST is proud to have helped over 1,000,000 surgeons better serve their patients with complicated cataract procedures.


The Malyugin Ring 2.0 is Released

MST introduced the next generation, Malyugin Ring 2.0. We are proud to have implemented the feedback of our surgeon customers into a new design which is easier to insert and remove, more flexible, and fits in even the smallest incisions.


Accutome is added to the MST Family.

Accutome offers a full line of diamond and metal surgical blades along with handheld surgical instruments and surgical disposable products. We are the industry leader in the production of diamond knives


MST expands its innovative product offerings through the acquisition of Trabectome® and TrabEx™, formerly Goniotome.
