Contoura Vision is the latest advancement in Specs Removal by Laser Vision Correction. While procedures like LASIK and SMILE only correct specs power, Contoura Vision goes one step further! In addition to correcting your specs power, Contoura Vision also corrects your corneal irregularities while working on Visual axis, thereby providing much sharper visual outcomes, unmatched by LASIK & SMILE.
SPECS REMOVAL – US FDA-APPROVED: Contoura Vision is approved by US-FDA claiming highest of safety in specs removal procedures.
Also Contoura Vision has the following advantages:
Contoura Vision with a special Topolyzer is able to map and remove corneal irregularities by marking 22,000 unique elevation points on the cornea.
This is able to create an optically perfect smooth surface of cornea, thereby highly enhancing visual sharpness and quality.
Contoura Vision treats on visual axis which is the natural seeing axis of eye. Other procedures like LASIK and SMILE treat on pupillary axis.
This treatment on Visual Axis further enhances the quality of vision.
Not all patients are candidates for LASIK and Contoura Vision treatment. A qualified ophthalmologist must conduct a thorough eye exam and health history to make sure a patient will benefit from the procedure. We evaluate the unique eye conditions of each patient and recommend a treatment plan that will provide the best visual outcome.
Contoura Vision LASIK is the first personalized laser eye procedure, It is offered by the Alcon – Wavelight Laser Company only. It is an additional profile or software applied to their excimer laser which offers Topography linked treatment.
This can only be applied provided the doctor/centre is using the Topolyser Vario which is a diagnostic equipment for topography maps, which is then integrated into the laser. Contoura Vision LASIK is a topography-guided link procedure, which has received US FDA approval
It has more advantage for those patients with corneal abnormalities (high cylindrical powers) or those with corneal imperfections.
The benefit is that it offers improved night vision and the most accurate LASIK results as compared to standard LASIK, but for that specific set of cases.
The Contoura platform combines the measurements with your glass prescription to optimize the focusing area. This procedure helps you by creating a highly personalized treatment plan.
Contoura Lasik adds a new dimension to vision correction. Contoura Lasik utilises a three step correction technique using a Femto Laser, Eximer Laser and a Topolyser. In this way it is able to give an aspheric correction of spectacle power while also correcting your corneal irregularities and working on visual axis. These give you a perfect optical surface and thereby much superior visual outcomes never seen before in any Lasik or Smile procedures. While Lasik and Smile can only provide a normal 6/6 (20/20) vision, Contoura is able to give better than perfect results of upto 6/5 (20/16) or better.
