What is LASIK Contoura® Vision?
Contoura is a guided topographic LASIK treatment. This technology has unique capabilities that offers a higher level of customization and is precise and individual. The procedure redefines the term "quality of vision" as studies show that patients see better than ever with glasses or contact lenses. The data provided by Contoura maps the unique contours of your cornea that cannot be measured with traditional technology. The scanning procedure samples up to 22,000 highlights on each eye to create your unique visual profile. This data provides an individual profile for each eye that your doctor can use to perform customized surgery.
Advantages of Contoura® Vision
Contoura Vision has these benefits:
✓ Extremely High Patient Satisfaction
✓ Exceptional accuracy
✓ Minimal side effects
✓ Decreased sensitivity to light, difficulty reading, driving at night
✓ Reduced dependence on glasses or contact lenses
Contoura Vision has resulted in patients vision better than 6/6 (or 20/20, the standardized normal vision) in multiple patients who were a part of evaluation by US FDA trials in attempt to validate the technology. Contoura Vision is the technology where consistent success beyond 20/20 vision has been achieved in the majority of patients. More than 40% of the patients that were evaluated were able to read one additional line on the visual acuity chart than that of a patient with 20/20 vision. Additionally, 13.5% could read two additional lines on the visual acuity chart. Fewer visual disturbances such as glare, halos, ghost images, difficulty in night time driving and reading were also reported by many patients. Contoura vision exhibited superior quality of vision compared to LASIK and SMILE technology
