Denver, CO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/21/2013 --Trusted LASIK Surgeons ( is pleased to announce that Jon G. Dishler M. D. contributed his expertise to industry experts and fellow eye surgeons at the 2013 American Academy of Ophthalmology annual meeting in New Orleans that recently concluded.

Dr. Dishler attended meetings that discussed the Phase II clinical study on the use of the VisuMax Femtosecond laser (Carl Zeiss Meditec) lenticule removal procedure for the correction of myopia. ReLex smile generates a refractive lenticule in the intact cornea with the Femtosecond laser. The ReLEx smile is a procedure that uses one laser during the procedure, and doesn’t require cutting a flap in the cornea or folding it back to expose the central cornea.

Jon G. Dishler of Denver, Colorado is an internationally -known and respected, refractive surgeon who has participated in over 10 FDA clinical studies. He has been awarded several patents for inventions in his specialty including the FDA approved Dishler Excimer Laser, Excimer beam profiler, Insertion system for corneal implants, and surgical visual feedback and eye fixation method and apparatus.

“We have been fortunate to be on the leading edge of refractive eye surgery for almost 30 years. I performed one of the first LASIK procedures in the United States with the Femtosecond laser and now act as the medical monitor for a pivotal clinical trial of all Femtosecond laser myopia treatment. This procedure requires no corneal flap and might provide additional benefits to patients seeking vision correction surgery,” stated Jon Dishler, M.D, of Dishler Laser Institute.
