What is the Contoura Procedure?
The Contoura procedure is a LASIK eye surgery that targets the cornea, or the clear covering of the eye, with a topography-guided laser. A standard LASIK surgery corrects vision by altering the shape of the cornea to achieve refractive correction.
The Contoura procedure delivers greater precision and personalization which in turn achieves better results for the patient. A typical glasses prescription measures the eye’s ability to focus on light as one whole unit. Whereas a custom LASIK gathers hundreds of different points using a special instrument called a topographer and assembles them to more accurately map out an eye’s deficiencies and create a unique ‘fingerprint’ for your eye.
