Refractive errors are imperfections in the eye that prevent light from focusing properly. This is what causes blurred vision. Common refractive errors include nearsightedness and astigmatism.
If you have one or both of these, chances are you’ve worn glasses or contacts for as long as you can remember. LASIK procedures using WaveLight® LASIK technology with CONTOURA® Vision are designed to give you the power to change that. And in fact, more patients are treated on the WaveLight® plaftorm than any other.1
As impressive as WaveLight® LASIK vision correction system may sound, it’s just the beginning. The surface of your eye is as unique as your fingerprint, and CONTOURA® Vision is revolutionary to LASIK, working with WaveLight® LASIK technology to tailor your laser vision correction procedure to your unique eye, redefining the quality of what you see.2
You can think of CONTOURA® Vision as “personalized LASIK.” Sometimes known as topography-guided LASIK, CONTOURA® Vision personalizes your LASIK procedure by creating a precise map of your eye that includes up to 22,000 unique elevation points.
With CONTOURA® Vision, life after a LASIK procedure means excellent vision for a large number of patients. Of eyes treated with CONTOURA® Vision, 92.6% achieved 20/20 vision or better, in an analysis of FDA study results on LASIK.3 And many patients saw even greater benefits from topography-guided LASIK: nearly two-thirds of eyes achieved at least 20/16 vision, and 15.7% of eyes achieved 20/10 vision or better.3
In fact, 98.4% of patients who get CONTOURA® Vision treatment say they would do it again.*,†,2
