Having a clear vision is crucial for almost all aspects of life, including our daily tasks, work, and overall well-being. However, not everyone is fortunate enough to have good natural eyesight, and common refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism can affect many individuals. While glasses or contact lenses are often used to correct vision, some people find them to be inconvenient and prefer to enjoy clear vision without them. Fortunately, medical advancements have made this possible through minimally invasive surgery, which is now becoming the standard of care in many medical fields, including refractive surgery.

Contoura Vision Lasik is one of the most prominent forms of refractive surgery in today’s world.

All you Need to Know About Contoura Vision Eye Surgery

Contoura Vision takes LASIK corrective surgery to a new height. Contoura Vision is a computer-guided topographic mapping technique that maps the microscopic contours of the cornea. The cornea is the clear front of the eye. This procedure treats irregularities of the curvature of the cornea as well as optics.

It has been observed that a lot of patients who receive the surgery claim to see clearer than they before even in the absence of glasses. The glare around lights is also observed to be reduced post-surgery. Contoura Vision LASIK Surgery delivers a measurement of 22,000 points when compared to LASIK, the currently existing wavefront, which only provides a measure of roughly around 200 points. Moreover, as topography assessments are more accurate, there is a need to make the treatments more personalized. Contoura Vision LASIK is an effective way to correct refractive errors. It rules out an individual’s dependency on external vision support entities like lenses or glasses.

Who is Eligible to Receive Contoura Vision Eye Surgery?

The Contoura method is a topography-guided Lasik surgery. It is considered to be one of the safest, latest, and most advanced methods to achieve vision correction.
This procedure is USA FDA-approved. It is said to deliver results that are better as compared to SMILE and LASIK and is a widely recommended treatment by Ophthalmologists. 

Though Contoura vision possesses a lot of advantages, there are a few guidelines for one to be eligible to receive or even opt for the treatment itself:

  1. The patient must be above 18 years
  2. The patient must have a steady eyewear prescription
  3. The cornea of the patient should be thin
  4. The patient should not have a spherical eye power  
  5. The patient shouldn’t be suffering from any major corneal pathology.

Is Contoura vision Eye Surgery Better Than LASIK?

Both LASIK Surgery and Contoura Vision Eye Surgery are performed to improve nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. There are various factors that differentiate between the two:

  1. LASIK Surgery eliminates the need for external vision enhancers like glasses and lenses but Contoura Vision provides more visual acuity and better refractive results. 
  2. The eyeball is the area on which the LASIK procedures are based, while Contoura procedures focus on fixing abnormalities of the cornea and optics.
  3. Contoura Vision LASIK Surgery delivers a measurement of 22,000 points when compared to LASIK, the currently existing wavefront, which only provides a measure of roughly around 200 points.
  4. Contoura Vision Lasik produces a much clearer and sharp vision.
  5. Contoura Vision LASIK generates better results. 65% of the patients that have received the treatment are found to have improvements better than 6/6.


Procedure of Contours Vision LASIK

Pre-Operative Eye Exam

To ascertain the patient’s suitability and safety for Contoura LASIK surgery, a thorough initial evaluation is conducted, involving a clinical exam and corneal topography through Pentacam. In the event of the detection of any retinal issues such as thinning, holes, or tears, a barrage laser treatment is administered prior to performing Contoura, with a time gap of 1 to 4 weeks.

During the Procedure

During the surgical procedure, the topolyser captures the patient’s topographic images, which are subsequently transmitted to the treatment planning station to create a customized treatment plan. Using up to 22,000 elevation points derived from the personalized topography profile, the laser precisely reshapes the cornea to enhance vision.

Post Procedure

The patient is free to exit the hospital after 30 minutes. To prevent infections and facilitate the recovery process, medicated eye drops are administered. The patient is then assessed on the day after the surgery, followed by subsequent evaluations at one-week and one-month intervals.
