Contoura™ Vision LASIK

Contoura™ Vision is a topography-guided LASIK treatment designed to provide a more personalized laser procedure for patients with nearsightedness, or nearsightedness with astigmatism, based on the unique corneal topography of each eye. Contoura™ Vision precisely measures up to 22,000 unique elevation points on each of a patient’s eyes.

Conditions Treated
  • Nearsightedness

    Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a common type of refractive error where close objects appear clearly, but distant objects appear blurry.

  • Astigmatism

    Astigmatism causes your vision to be blurred at both near and far distances. It occurs when your cornea is shaped more like a football than a basketball.

Consultation

During the consultation, we will ask you about your eye health history and medications, and perform some tests. You will then be examined by the doctor who will discuss your treatment options. This visit usually takes about an hour and your personal Patient Counselor will help you throughout the process.
 
Your Counselor can review payment options and schedule you for surgery and related appointments, such as post-operative exams. You will have a set of instructions to follow to prepare for your surgery day that includes steps like taking prescribed eye drops and setting up a ride for your procedure day.
