ContouraTM Vision – Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction

The field of laser vision correction is constantly progressing. Since the advent of laser refractive surgery in the 1980s, more and more people across the world have been able to reduce the effects that nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism have had on their daily lives – and many have even eliminated their need for corrective eyewear in order to see clearly. The efficacy of these procedures has continued to improve as the technology has advanced, and doctors at Gordon Schanzlin New Vision Institute have established themselves as leading voices in the development of new techniques. Our practice recently participated in the clinical trials that lead up to the approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of the latest step forward in LASIK surgery: ContouraTM Vision, also known as Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction.

ContouraTM Vision – Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction can optimize the surface of the eye’s cornea in such a way that it actually enhances the quality of vision better than has ever been possible before. In clinical studies, ContouraTM Vision – Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction helped 90% of patients see as well or better without glasses than they did with glasses. It can benefit patients in a number of ways, helping them obtain a better quality of vision and reducing the potential for night glare.

Although previous laser vision correction techniques have offered patients incredible precision and accuracy while reshaping the cornea and addressing visual refractive errors, ContouraTM Vision – Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction takes the treatment even further. Instead of just treating the eyeglass prescription, this technology utilizes unparalleled diagnostic capabilities to identify and record imperfections in the curvature of the cornea and the optics of the cornea, combining those measurements with the eyeglass prescription to give the eyes a better focusing surface. The technique goes hand-in-hand with our state-of-the-art WaveLight® EX500 and Topography-Guided Planning Software, allowing our experienced eye surgeons to create a truly customized LASIK procedure that can enhance your eyesight with stunning results.

Who Is A Candidate for ContouraTM Vision – Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction

Candidates for this advanced technique include LASIK patients who:

  • Are at least 18 years old
  • Have had a stable corrective eyewear prescription
  • Have under eight diopters of myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Do not have more than three diopters of astigmatism (or up to nine diopters of myopia and astigmatism combined)

During your initial LASIK consultation and eye evaluation here at Gordon Schanzlin New Vision Institute, our ophthalmologist will talk with you about your candidacy and determine if Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction is right for your needs.

We are very excited to bring this revolutionary technology to our patients, and we look forward to continuing our mission to bring the field of vision correction even further into the future!
