Contoura Vision is the next innovative level of customization for LASIK and PRK surgery. It utilizes the Wavelight® Topolyzer VARIO Diagnostic Device (VARIO) in conjunction with our Wavelight EX500 laser. The VARIO combines two features:
Detailed, sophisticated scans of the cornea take your prescription into consideration, as well as finding and recording imperfections, peaks and valleys, in the optics of the cornea and the cornea’s curvature. This data can produce an even more precise LASIK or PRK procedure called Contoura Vision. Our surgeons, Dr. Mozayeni and Dr. Nunnery, have always delivered personalized, customized, and optimal results to patients at Providence Eye, but the introduction of Contoura Vision enables our surgeons to take results one step further.
Our complimentary comprehensive consultation with your potential surgeon will ultimately determine if you are a candidate to add Contoura Vision. Not every person who is a good candidate for LASIK or PRK is a good candidate for Contoura Vision. There are certain parameters that must be met to be a good candidate for this type of topography guided laser vision correction:
Your surgeon will let you know if you are a candidate for, and will benefit from Contoura Vision.
Please note that the likelihood of obtaining 20/20 vision is the same after LASIK or PRK 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.
Providence Eye has been performing Contoura Vision LASIK since 2016. Contoura Vision is not available at all 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 analyze the data to precisely program the laser to perform topography-guided LASIK surgery using the Wavelight EX500. A surgeon who consistently performs many procedures in a small, personalized environment is best suited for this topography-guided laser vision correction technology.
Dr. Mozayeni and Dr. Nunnery's goal is to always deliver the absolute best result to every patient. For certain patients, Contoura Vision LASIK or PRK enables our surgeon to deliver an even better result than before. FDA studies, of Contoura Vision LASIK showed:
As always at Providence Eye & Laser Specialists, we never predetermine the procedure that is right for you. We want to meet you, learn about your vision and how to improve your vision for your lifestyle both personally & professionally. This, along with all the medical data we gather will enable you and your surgeon to determine together what is the best procedure for you.
