Contoura Vision

Contoura Vision is the latest and most advanced technology designed to enhance vision and involves the use of a diagnostic device called the topolyser which provides a highly precise and accurate mapping of the eye with 22,000 unique elevation points for each eye.  Launched in 2016 & FDA approved, it can identify corneal irregularities and creates a customized treatment profile for each eye. While all other laser platforms work on pupillary axis, Contoura is the only platform in the world designed to treat on your visual axis, resulting in sharpest possible vision.

Contoura Procedure

Contoura Step 1

Step 1

A detailed refraction and comprehensive ocular examination is performed by a refractive surgeon. This is followed by a battery of  preoperative tests such as the corneal topography (Pentacam) to check for the curvature and thickness of the cornea. It helps in deciding if the patient’s eye is fit for LASIK and also in deciding the need for contoura. A dilated fundoscopy is done and  retinal pathologies such as thinning/ hole/ tear if detected are found during the evaluation, are treated first using barrage laser. LASIK is then scheduled after 1 to 4 weeks.

Contoura Step 2

Step 2

On the day of the scheduled procedure, the patient’s topographic scans are done using topolyser. The customised treatment planning is then done based on these scans Contoura Vision Femto LASIK is performed using the WaveLight Refractive Suite, the most advanced refractive platform available in the world.

Step 3

Bladeless Femtosecond technology (FS 200 laser) is used to create a thin flap, which is then lifted using the microsurgical instruments. Topoguided laser ablation for customised refractive correction is performed using the latest EX500 exicmer laser.

Normal Corneal topography

Patients with a higher cylindrical refractive error in addition to the spherical power will benefit the most from Contoura Lasik surgery.

What Is The Difference Between Contoura Surgery And Lasik Surgery?

Contoura vision surgery has the following advantages over the existing LASIK platforms:

Better visual acuity: The post-operative refractive corrections on the Contoura are found to be better as compared to LASIK in terms of quality and quantity of vision. Some of the patients even experienced visual acuity better than 6/6.

Broader scope: In addition to correction of refractive error, contouracan treat the corneal curvaturalabnormailties.

Advanced technology: Contoura vision is the most advanced form of LASIK.The Contoura vision surgery maps 22000 points on cornea as compared to the conventional LASIK surgery maps only 200 points on the cornea.

Fewer complications: The complication rate of Contoura LASIK is less as compared to the conventional LASIK surgery. Minimal damage to the tissue is and relatively faster healing time make the post-operative period recovery quicker.

Does Contoura surgery hurt?

Most patients feel minimal or no pain during the procedure.

What kind of vision should I expect in the first few days after my Contoura procedure?

Immediately after the Contoura procedure, the first thing many patients notice is how clearly they can see the objects around them.
