This symposium will give an overview of the wide application range that can be covered by VisuMax femtosecond laser and MEL 80 excimer laser, lasting from FemtoLASIK, implementation of Femtosecond Keratoplasty up to a unique apless, all-femto, single step method for laser vision correction ReLEx smile which was successfully launched only at ESCRS in Vienna 2011.

The focus of the symposium, however, will be on this new refractive method ReLEx smile as the ifrstrefractiveprocedure for laser vision correction by lenticule extraction instead of tissue ablation and therefore being minimally invasive and apless. It will be introduced by 2 surgeons which belong to the principle investigators. They will explain the working principle and advantages of the method and illustrate how to perform the surgery theoretically. They will show their clinical results, di erentiated for low, moderate and high myopia and provide their general experiences with ReLEx smile and how the advantages of the method t in the daily practice.
