The Dishler Method: Pioneering All-Laser LASIK

The Dishler Laser Institute technology methods signify a leap into the future of LASIK. In 2001, Dr. Dishler pioneered All-Laser LASIK in Colorado, utilizing the Femtosecond laser (IntraLase®) for corneal flap creation, setting new standards for safety and precision. Driven by a commitment to progress, he continued to elevate refractive surgery beyond the limitations of conventional methods.

Innovative Bladeless LASIK with Zeiss VisuMax® FS

In 2007, Dr. Dishler took the lead as a principal investigator in FDA trials for Zeiss VisuMax® femtosecond and MEL 80 excimer lasers. A pioneering achievement followed in 2017 and 2018, marking him as the first in the U.S. to perform SMILE procedures for myopia and astigmatism post-FDA approval. His commitment to innovation extends to training physicians on Zeiss® femtosecond and excimer laser systems, including Zeiss VisuMax® FS—a cutting-edge, bladeless technology for corneal flap creation, introduced at Dishler Laser Institute in 2007.

Advantages of Bladeless LASIK with VisuMax®

Similar to other bladeless LASIK technologies, the VisuMax® FS laser, under precise computer control, crafts ultra-thin, accurate corneal flaps. This enhances safety, expanding eligibility for patients who might not qualify for LASIK with a traditional blade. The procedure ensures each flap is meticulously tailored to the eye contour, seamlessly fitting back into place, resulting in a consistently effective and low-risk outcome.

Carl Zeiss VisuMax: Setting LASIK Standards

Significantly, the VisuMax® FS is the sole femtosecond laser integrating a curved interface in corneal flap creation. This unique design enables patients to maintain continuous visibility during the procedure, enhancing the precision of the bladeless LASIK flap creation by ensuring consistent focus throughout treatment.

The Carl Zeiss VisuMax is our standard in all LASIK procedures, incurring no additional charges.

Zeiss VisuMax Femtosecond Laser:

  • The Highest Speed (500 Khz) Among Femtosecond Lasers Ensures Fast, Accurate, and Comfortable Procedures.
  • Features a Patented Curved Applanation Cone, Matching the Natural Corneal Shape for Distortion-Free Flap Creation, Maintaining Vision Clarity.
  • Applies Minimal Eye Pressure for Enhanced Comfort and Reduced Stress During Surgery.
  • Creates a Customized Flap, Accounting for Individual Corneal Shape and Thickness Differences.
  • Reversed Beveled Flap Edges Promote More Vital Healing and Minimize Complications.
