Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

As of 8/23/2021, Dr. Sutton has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities.

Some of these don't really apply... There weren't treatment options discussed at this time (although it was well explained to me why none were needed). I am not sure about the "care for me as a person" - seems like that would better apply to PCP than eye dr.

I tried making first appointment with office that did my surgery and did not receive a callback to be referred to Dr. Sutton's office first. Made another call to schedule, but took 40 minutes to make my appointment, however I was able to still work and wait, so it was fine. Finally was told I needed to visit an eye doctor first before I would be seen at Dr. Morley's office for further consultation.

I've had a fair amount of experience with optometrists. The optometrist I had for a couple of decades in Culpeper, Virginia was outstanding. So is Dr. Sutton. It's a relief, after moving to Ohio and a bit of looking around, to finally have another one I fully trust and am comfortable with. Dr. Sutton is knowledgeable, thorough, and communicates well. Simply the best.
