Contoura® Vision LASIK
The newest in FDA-approved LASIK technology is here, and it aims to open
doors to individuals who may have been ineligible for previous LASIK surgeries.
Contoura® Vision, also called topography-guided LASIK, works to correct
vision using traditional
LASIK techniques combined with new, revolutionary technology. Results have been
extremely successful, with 92% of trial patients reporting 20/20 vision,
or better, only 1 year after receiving Contoura® Vision LASIK. If
are looking for the right method to improve your vision, or are simply
tired of glasses and contact lenses, consider Contoura® Vision.

About Contoura® Vision
Doctors who are trained in this technique will take several clinical digital
images of the eye before the procedure in order to analyze 22,000 elevation
points on the cornea. This extremely specific image analysis allows doctors
to create a customized procedure for each patient, leading to optimal
results. Once the data for a patient’s vision is collected, the
doctor will upload the patient’s information to a specialized program.
This program controls the surgical instrument, a laser. Once the laser
has the appropriate information, it will provide a unique treatment for
the patient, addressing any particular concerns or trouble areas.
Potential Candidates for Contoura® Vision
One of the best aspects of Contoura® Vision is that it opens the doors
to LASIK for patients who might not have qualified for other procedures.
Contoura® Vision can help patients with complex vision problems, such as:
- Myopia (nearsightedness)
- Irregular corneas
Procedure and Recovery
Patients who undergo Contoura® Vision can expect the procedure to take
roughly 15 minutes. Most patients report improved vision immediately after
treatment, though vision should gradually improve for up to 3 months after
the procedure. Red or watery eyes are not uncommon, though most patients
are well enough to return to work the next day. Patients should not drive
home after the procedure and should bring someone with them to drive home
and to pick up any necessary medicines. A postoperative checkup will also
be scheduled with your doctor a day or two after the procedure.
