Contoura Vision – Salient Features

  • Achieves sharpest vision possible
  • Re-treatment is possible
  • Maps up to 22,000 elevation points for each eye
  • 98% patients achieve an extremely high rate of satisfaction
  • 93% patients achieve 20/20 or better vision after the procedure
  • 65% patients achieve better than perfect vision ie 20/16 vision or better
  • Contoura Vision decreases many of the common symptoms associated with LASIK like light sensitivity, difficulty driving at night, glare, starbursts and halos

Unlike traditional LASIK and SMILE procedures, Contoura LASIK offers the potential for fewer side effects. This means you may experience less discomfort like light sensitivity, difficulty reading or driving at night, and visual disturbances like starbursts, halos, and glare. By addressing the unique topography of your cornea, Contoura LASIK aims to deliver a smoother corneal surface, potentially leading to a more comfortable and visually satisfying experience.

The Contoura LASIK Procedure: A Step-by-Step Guide

The Contoura LASIK procedure offers a personalized approach to vision correction. Here's a breakdown of the four main steps involved:

Step 1: Pre-Operative Evaluation

  • Consultation and Examination: A thorough examination by a refractive surgeon is conducted to assess your vision needs and overall eye health.
  • Pre-Operative Tests: Tests like corneal topography (using a Pentacam) measure corneal curvature and thickness to determine your suitability for LASIK and the potential need for Contoura. Additionally, a dilated fundoscopy checks for retinal health. If any retinal issues are identified, they are addressed before proceeding with LASIK.

Step 2: Treatment Planning

  • Topographic Scans: On the procedure day, your corneas are scanned using a topolyser to create detailed 3D maps.
  • Customized Treatment Plan: Based on these scans, your surgeon develops a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique corneal topography. This ensures the laser correction precisely addresses your specific needs.

Step 3: The Procedure

  • Bladeless Femtosecond Laser: A femtosecond laser (FS 200) creates a thin corneal flap without a blade, offering greater precision and potentially faster healing.
  • Lifting the Flap: Microscopic instruments carefully lift the corneal flap.
  • Contoura Vision Ablation: The latest EX500 excimer laser performs a topoguided ablation using the customized treatment plan for precise refractive correction.

Step 4: Post-Operative Care

  • Recovery: After a brief observation period (around 30 minutes), you can typically return home.
  • Post-Operative Instructions: You'll receive detailed instructions on medications, eye drops, and precautions to promote healing and prevent infection.
  • Follow-up Appointments: Follow-up check-ups are scheduled to monitor your progress, typically on day one and one month after the procedure.

How Contoura LASIK Works:

Traditional LASIK corrects your vision prescription by reshaping the cornea, the clear dome at the front of your eye. While effective, it doesn't address microscopic imperfections on the cornea's surface. Contoura LASIK goes beyond, creating a personalized treatment plan based on your unique corneal topography.

Here's what sets Contoura LASIK apart:

  • 3D Corneal Mapping: A sophisticated device called a corneal topographer creates a detailed 3D map of your cornea, revealing even the slightest irregularities.
  • Personalized Treatment: This 3D map is used to guide the laser during the procedure, ensuring the correction is customized to your specific eye shape. By addressing these imperfections, Contoura LASIK has the potential to deliver sharper, clearer vision, particularly noticeable in low-light conditions.
  • Advanced Laser Technology: Contoura LASIK utilizes a femtosecond laser for unmatched precision in corneal reshaping. This minimally invasive approach creates a precise corneal flap without stitches, promoting faster healing and comfort.

Benefits of Contoura LASIK:

  • Sharper, Clearer Vision: Contoura LASIK has the potential to deliver sharper vision than traditional LASIK, potentially minimizing nighttime halos, glare, and starbursts often experienced after other procedures.
  • Exceptional Visual Outcomes: The personalized approach of Contoura LASIK maximizes the potential for achieving exceptional vision quality, potentially exceeding 20/20 vision in some cases.
  • Permanent Spectacle Independence: Contoura LASIK offers a long-lasting solution for vision correction, potentially eliminating your dependence on glasses or contacts for good.
  • Quick Recovery: Most patients experience rapid vision improvement and can return to daily activities within a day.
  • Reduced Side Effects: Contoura LASIK may potentially reduce common post-LASIK symptoms like light sensitivity and difficulty seeing at night.
