What is Contoura Vision - Topography Guided LASIK?

Contoura Vision Topography Guided LASIK (Contoura Vision) is the next innovative level of customization for LASIK & PRK surgery. It is the Wavelight® Topolyzer VARIO Diagnostic Device (VARIO) in conjunction with our Wavelight EX500 laser. The VARIO combines two features:

  • Iris imaging for potential eye tracking registration during the procedure
  • Topography imaging for potential additional customization of your treatment

It is used to take detailed, sophisticated scans of the cornea that not only take your prescription into consideration but also finds and records imperfections in the optics of the cornea and the cornea’s curvature. This data, combined with Dr. Mozayeni’s surgical skill and expertise, can produce an even more precise LASIK or PRK procedure called Contoura Vision, providing an even better result. Dr. Mozayeni has always delivered personalized, customized and optimal results to patients at Providence Eye. But now, with the introduction of Contoura Vision, Dr. Mozayeni can take his performance and his patient’s results one step further.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Contoura Vision LASIK?

Our free comprehensive consultation with Dr. Mozayeni will ultimately determine if Contoura Vision Topography Guided LASIK is right for you. There are certain parameters that must be met to be a good candidate for this type of topography guided laser vision correction:

  • 18 years or older
  • Stable prescription for at least 12 months
  • A prescription no higher than a -8.0
  • Astigmatism no greater than 3 diopters

Please note that the likelihood of obtaining 20/20 vision is the same with or without Contoura Vision. Even if Contoura Vision LASIK may not be right for you, nearly everyone will benefit from the more precise iris registration.

Is Contoura Vision LASIK Offered by Every Practice?

Dr. Mozayeni at Providence Eye has been performing Contoura Topography Guided LASIK since 2016. Contoura Vision is not available at most practices as it specifically requires the WaveLight Topolyzer VARIO Diagnostic Device and the WaveLight EX500 laser. Additionally, more than ever before, an extreme level of detail, skill and personalized attention by the surgeon is required to properly program the laser with the precise data used to perform topography guided LASIK surgery using the Wavelight EX500. A surgeon who consistently performs a large number of procedures in a small-personalized environment is best suited for this topography guided laser vision correction technology.
