Contoura Vision Surgery
What is Contoura Vision?
Contoura Vision represents a groundbreaking advancement in laser eye surgery, especially when compared to traditional LASIK. Specifically designed for addressing common refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, Contoura Vision distinguishes itself through its precision and customized approach.
What sets Contoura Vision apart from LASIK is its focus on individual eye characteristics. Instead of solely relying on standard prescriptions, Contoura Vision treatment employs a meticulous corneal mapping process. This detailed mapping allows the identification and correction of corneal aberrations – subtle irregularities in the cornea’s shape that directly impact visual clarity. By honing in on these unique imperfections, Contoura Vision eye surgery offers a more tailored and accurate treatment approach compared to LASIK. In layman terms, this refractive procedure is also known as ‘contoura LASIK’.
Eligibility for Contoura eye surgery is determined based on individual eye characteristics. If you are exploring vision correction options and desire a solution that transcends traditional methods, Contoura Vision treatment stands out as an innovative and personalized approach. To be eligible for this procedure, individuals typically need to have stable vision prescriptions and meet specific corneal health criteria. A comprehensive eye examination and consultation with a qualified eye specialist will help determine whether Contoura surgery is the right fit for your unique needs.
Embrace the opportunity to achieve your best possible vision with Contoura Vision, setting it apart from conventional LASIK procedures. If you are seeking a tailored and advanced vision correction solution, schedule a consultation at Centre For Sight to explore your eligibility for this remarkable technology.
Contoura Vision Surgery & Procedure
The entire procedure of contoura vision involves a series of crucial steps that leverage advanced technology for precision and individualization.
Before the surgery commences, an in-depth pre-operative assessment takes place. This step includes the utilization of topography-guided imaging technology to map the cornea’s surface. This mapping creates a three-dimensional representation of corneal irregularities, forming the basis for a personalized treatment plan.
To ensure the patient’s comfort, anesthetic eye drops are administered prior to the procedure.
The creation of a corneal flap is a common aspect of Contoura Vision surgery, allowing the eye surgeon access to the underlying tissue. Typically, a femtosecond laser is employed for this purpose, creating a thin, hinged flap in the cornea with high precision.
The subsequent use of an excimer laser facilitates the exact reshaping of the cornea based on the preoperative mapping. This laser meticulously removes minute amounts of tissue to correct specific imperfections identified during the mapping process.
A notable feature of Contoura Vision surgery is its high level of customization. The laser is guided by the detailed corneal map, not only addressing common refractive errors but also targeting higher-order aberrations, resulting in a more personalized treatment.
Following the completion of laser reshaping, the corneal flap is delicately repositioned. The natural suction of the cornea aids in holding the flap in place during the initial stages of healing.
Post-operative care involves providing patients with protective eye shields and clear instructions. Recovery is typically swift, with many individuals experiencing improved vision within one to two days. The meticulous mapping and customization process of Contoura Vision surgery aims to deliver enhanced visual outcomes, making it a sought-after option for those seeking advanced laser eye correction.

DO YOU ALSO HAVE THESE QUERIES?
Can both eyes undergo Contoura Vision Surgery simultaneously?
Yes, Contoura Vision Surgery can be performed on both eyes simultaneously. However, the decision to treat both eyes at once depends on various factors, like the surgeon’s recommendation, the patient’s eye health, and individual circumstances.
Can individuals with astigmatism benefit from Contoura Vision Surgery?
Yes, individuals with astigmatism with cylindrical power up to 3D can benefit from Contoura Vision.
What vision issues can Contoura Vision address?
Contoura Vision addresses a range of vision issues, including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. It also corrects corneal abnormalities and visual axis, delivering remarkable visual outcomes by meticulously mapping 22,000 points over the eye’s surface and considering individual variations in corneal curvature.
Is Contoura Vision better than LASIK?
Contoura Vision is considered as an advanced form of LASIK, offering personalized treatment based on corneal topography. It offers superhuman vision of 6/5, but individual results may vary. The major advantage Contoura Vision holds is that it addresses all refractive errors (myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism) along with corneal abnormalities and axial issues of the eye.
Who is an ideal candidate for Contoura Vision Surgery?
Ideal candidates for Contoura Vision surgery are individuals seeking solutions for refractive errors, like myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. Their age should be above 18 yrs and have stable eye power from the last six months. Patients with thin corneal thickness are also eligible for this procedure. Moreover, individuals with specific corneal irregularities and axial issues can be benefitted from this surgery too.
Is Contoura Vision eye surgery a painless procedure?
Yes, Contoura Vision surgery is a painless procedure, though patients may experience little discomfort or a sensation in the eyes during the surgery.
How long do the results of Contoura Vision treatment last?
Contoura Vision results are long-lasting, with many patients experiencing improved vision for years. However, individual outcomes may vary, and factors such as age and changes in eye health can influence the duration of results.
Is there any age limit for Contoura Vision Surgery?
Patients’ age must lie between 18-40 yrs with stabilized eye power from the last 6 months.
How does Contoura Vision impact night vision and halos?
Contoura Vision aims to improve night vision and reduce halos by utilizing advanced topographic mapping technology to create a detailed map of the cornea’s surface and customizing the laser treatment to the unique corneal irregularities of each individual.
Are there any side effects of contoura vision?
Since Contoura Vision is a flap-based surgery, it may possess a few side effects such as flap-dislocation, dry eyes, glare, or halos, but they improve over time. Individuals planning for it must consult with an eye surgeon to discuss potential risks and benefits associated with their eye conditions.
