He has over 25 years of experience in refractive surgery, as well as over 13 years in laser vision correction surgery, including LASIK and PRK. Over his career, Dr. Dishler has performed over 45,000 LASIK and laser vision procedures, helping his patients to see more clearly. The first laser vision surgeon to perform LASIK surgery in Colorado in 1995, Dr. Dishler has been a leading pioneer in bringing the latest advance in laser vision technologies to Colorado and the first surgeon in North America to use the Zeiss Visumax Femtosecond laser. He was also the first surgeon in Colorado to performing the following procedures: Automated Lamellar Keratoplasty (ALK), LASIK for farsightedness, 100% All Laser IntraLASIK, laser eye surgery using the Zeiss M.E.L. 80 excimer laser, and the FLEX or Femtosecond Lenticular Extraction procedure. The FLEX procedure is a next generation refractive procedure currently being performed in Europe. In this procedure a single laser (VisuMax) cuts and enables extraction of a tiny contact lens shaped piece of tissue similar to removing a contact lens. The FLEX procedure has many potential advantages as compared to LASIK. Dr. Dishler is the only American who has had the honor of being granted a German medical license to allow him to perform this procedure in Germany and will be an investigator for future studies of FLEX once it is introduced into the United States. The VisuMax laser, already located at the Dishler Laser Institute, is capable of performing this procedure with updated software. This represents another example of how Dr. Dishler is at the forefront of laser vision correction technology and a leader in the field.
