How does Contoura work?

As the field of LASIK has grown over the years, so has the number of people who qualify for the procedure. It used to be that the most exciting breakthrough in the world of LASIK was performing the procedure without a blade. The bladeless surgery allowed more people to be eligible to undergo the procedure.

Now, the exciting breakthrough involves impressive, accurate mapping of the patient’s cornea, setting the surgery up for success from the beginning. Contoura can help people with astigmatism see the world without the need for corrective lenses. Contoura is known as “topography-guided” LASIK because it maps the cornea using the latest in laser technology. This relatively new technology factors in 22,000 unique elevation points, tailoring the surgery to the patient’s eye.

This allows the procedure to be done with far more precision and customized information than any previous iteration of LASIK to date. With this guiding information, the cornea is smoothed to ensure that light passing through the eye meets the retina uniformly, allowing the recipient to experience eyesight that is clear and crisp without the aid of contacts or glasses.

Who is a good candidate for Contoura?

Contoura is for almost anyone who is thinking about getting LASIK treatment. More specifically, because of the precision mapping that topography-guided LASIK treatment offers, it is especially helpful to patients who have nearsightedness with or without astigmatism. This is because no two astigmatism patterns are the same, and the astounding data that Contoura provides allows the procedure to be handled with ease.

The topography-guided maps that Contoura creates allow Chicago Cornea Consultants to offer a more effective LASIK experience. Contoura allows for accurate and personalized treatment to bring a great vision to more people than ever before.

What are the benefits of Contoura?

The precision and personalization of topography-guided LASIK allow Contoura to be conducted with more accuracy and individuality. With the information gathered from the 22,000 elevation points, an individualized, custom profile is crafted to ensure the optimum vision for our patients. Other “guided” LASIK procedures also measure points around the cornea, but instead of measuring 22,000 points of elevation as Contoura does, others only measure around 200 points of curvature.

Because of the degree of accurate information and customization, our patients who opt for Contoura Vision experience a significantly reduced risk of encountering light sensitivity, halos, or glare in their exciting post-procedure lives. After Contoura, patients are able to get out and enjoy the world around them without glasses! Ready to find out if you’re a good candidate for Contoura?
