Contoura Vision

Laser vision correction is an investment in your freedom and quality of life. At Juliette Eye Institute, we are proud to offer Contoura Vision Topography Guided LASIK to provide you with the most customized vision correction and produce the best results.

What Is Contoura Vision Topography Guided LASIK?

Contoura Vision is a highly personalized LASIK procedure that provides you with permanent vision correction and aims to reduce your dependence on contact lenses and glasses. Alcon’s Contoura Vision utilizes the technology of the advanced WaveLight lasers to personalize your visual results.

Contoura Vision gives Dr. Melendez the ability to customize your procedure to improve nearsightedness or nearsightedness with astigmatism. Unlike traditional LASIK, Contoura Vision LASIK will only correct nearsightedness or nearsightedness with astigmatism.

What Happens During The Contoura Vision LASIK Procedure? 

Alcon’s advanced WaveLight technology is the foundation for Contoura Vision. The WaveLight system uses advanced corneal mapping technology to produce precise and personalized vision results. 

During the WaveLight process, Dr. Melendez can customize your treatment using advanced corneal mapping technology to understand vital information about the unique characteristics of your eyes. Before the Contoura Vision procedure, Dr. Melendez will first numb the surface of your eyes.  Next, he will use a laser to make a tiny flap on the surface of your cornea. Using the precise and calculated measurements taken before the procedure and with the help of WaveLight technology, he will then use a laser to reshape your cornea and correct your refractive error. 

Once Dr. Melendez has completely reshaped your cornea, he will reposition the flap to heal on its own and complete your Contoura Vision topography-guided LASIK procedure.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Contoura Vision Topography Guided LASIK?

Before you schedule your Contoura Vision LASIK procedure, Dr. Melendez will perform a thorough and comprehensive evaluation of your eyes to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure. During this evaluation, Dr. Melendez will test your vision and look at your eyes under a microscope. 

In addition, they will take various measurements using machines that map your eye. One of the most important measurements that eye doctors take during the evaluation is corneal thickness. Among other factors such as age and eye health, your corneas must be thick enough to sustain the creation of a flap. If your cornea is too thin, Dr. Melendez will likely tell you that Contoura Vision LASIK is not the best laser vision correction procedure for you.

If you are farsighted, you will not qualify for Contoura Vision LASIK. Dr. Melendez will likely also want you to have a stable glasses prescription before you can be eligible for the procedure.

What Are The Benefits Of Choosing Contoura Vision LASIK?

One of the most significant benefits of choosing Contoura Vision LASIK is how quick it is. The entire procedure often takes less than thirty minutes to complete. 

Most people also notice an improvement in their vision right away after the procedure. Like other types of laser vision correction, Contoura Vision LASIK aims to reduce your dependence on contact lenses and glasses. However, Contoura Vision LASIK extends freedom beyond reduced reliance on visual aids. Contoura Vision also improves many of the common visual symptoms experienced by glasses and contact lens wearers.  

After Contoura Vision LASIK, you can expect to experience fewer haloes around likes, difficulty driving at night, and glare. Contoura can help you experience life in crisp detail, possibly even better than what you experience with glasses or contact lenses. Besides all of these factors, Contoura Vision LASIK is one of the most personalized and customized laser vision correction procedures available. With Contoura Vision LASIK, you can expect visual freedom and clarity, like you never have before.
