Why should you consider Contoura LASIK?
Breakthrough Contoura™ Vision
Contoura™ Vision combines corneal measurements with your eyeglass prescription to guide your procedure and provide your eyes with an improved focusing surface. When used in conjunction with our WaveLight® EX500 laser software, you can expect the most accurate laser vision correction results.
Contoura™ Vision combines corneal measurements with your eyeglass prescription to guide your procedure and provide your eyes with an improved focusing surface.
Contoura™ Vision - Topography-guided Laser Vision Correction is also extremely reliable. In clinical testing, this approach to treatment was effective for over 90 percent of patients.
The procedure itself is a type of LASIK that reshapes the cornea to more favorably reflect light. The customization takes place in the preoperative planning process. The diagnosing capabilities of Contoura™ Vision can identify tiny imperfections in the corneal tissue that require modification to improve your vision. Dr. Holzman will evaluate information from the topographer, the manifest refraction, and the wavelight aberrometer to design a unique treatment plan for you.
