Contoura™ Vision LASIK
Home / Procedures /
Contoura™ 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.
We are all born with microscopic hills and valleys in our cornea. Custom Lasik (wavefront optimized Lasik – WFO) treats the average of all those hills and valleys. With CONTOURA, the Topolyzer measures 22,000 unique elevation points on the cornea. The software then translates that information into a customized treatment that Is designed to eliminate the hills and valleys. The advantage of CONTOURA is that 2/3 of our patients will see better than 20/20 compared to one out of three patients seeing better than 20/20 with WFO Lasik.
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a common type of refractive error where close objects appear clearly, but distant objects appear blurry.
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.
