Contoura® LASIK Surgery
CONTOURA® Vision is a revolutionary breakthrough technology in corrective eye surgery that features cutting edge, topography-guided laser vision correction. It is the latest and most advanced, FDA approved LASIK technology available in the United States for laser vision correction.
CONTOURA® Vision improves upon the traditional Wavelight® LASIK procedure because it utilizes a technologically-advanced mapping technology to map the contours of the surface of each individual’s unique cornea. The advanced scanning procedure samples up to 22,000 elevation points for each eye, creating a unique vision profile specific for each patient — allowing for a more precise level of personalized treatment for each patient.
Studies are showing that patients receiving Contoura LASIK are experiencing better vision than ever — even better than with glasses or contact lenses. According to clinical trials and reports by the Food and Drug Administration, CONTOURA® Vision has produced profound results:
- “92.6% of eyes that received topography-guided LASIK treatment achieved 20/20 vision or better.”
- “Nearly 65% of eyes treated with personalized topography-guided LASIK experienced 20/16 vision or better in clinical study”
Dr. Anthony O. Roberts is pleased to announce that CONTOURA® Vision is now available at Shady Grove Ophthalmology’s office in Rockville, MD.
Am I a Candaidate for Contoura LASIK?
Contoura, while advanced, isn’t a fit for all individuals. Contoura is best for patients that are nearsighted, either with or without an astigmatism.
Contoura Topography-Guided LASIK surgery is particularly helpful to patients with common vision problems such as myopia (nearsightedness), astigmatism and/or irregular corneas. This personalized diagnostic technology is used to help identify and record imperfections in the curvature and optics of the cornea, and then using those measurements to provide a more personalized procedure designed to produce the best results possible. Contoura® LASIK can help patients who might otherwise not be candidates for traditional LASIK.
The best way to determine if you are a candidate is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Roberts. During the initial LASIK consultation and eye evaluation, Dr. Roberts will determine first, if you are a candidate for LASIK and then, decide if Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction is the best solution for your vision correction and would provide the best overall outcome.
What to Expect After Contoura Vision LASIK?
The Contoura® Vision LASIC surgery usually takes less than fifteen minutes. While everyone is different, most patients report feeling little to no pain during the surgery.
Because no two cases are the same, the recovery time for LASIK can differ. However, most patients start to notice a dramatic improvement in eye sight almost immediately, most 20/20 or better. You will need to rest your eyes and wear protective eye shields as well as the following:
- Avoid rubbing the eyes
- Rest at home with your protective eye glasses.
- Keep your eyes clean
- Take any prescribed medications and follow any/all post-operative instructions provided by the doctor.
In some cases, patients could experience mild discomfort during the first few days as their eyes heal and it is not uncommon to also experience teary, watery or red eyes for the first few days following surgery. Most patients are able to return to work the next day, however. The eyes can continue to heal and vision improve for about 3 months.
