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 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.
