Contoura Vision is the latest advancement in Specs Removal by Laser Vision Correction. While procedures like LASIK and SMILE only correct specs power, Contoura Vision goes one step further! In addition to correcting your specs power, Contoura Vision also corrects your corneal irregularities while working on Visual axis, thereby providing much sharper visual outcomes, unmatched by LASIK & SMILE.
Advantages of Contoura:
Contoura provides a visual precision “SUPERVISON” by correcting the irregularities of cornea as compared to other laser procedure. This advance technique maps your eye in detail and thus adjust a higher degree of precision. The irregularities of cornea can be extrapolated in the form of K-readings.
What is Higher Order Aberrations?
Higher order aberrations are the distortions of cornea created by wavefront light when it passes through the irregular surface, and which can not be corrected with spectacles or contact lenses. A delicate equipment is used to visualize your errors.
Contoura procedure removes higher orders of aberration before removing refractive errors. If there is a significant difference between measures refraction and manifest refraction induce a hallmark for Higher-order Aberrations.
A good case in point is if K1 is 42.00 *05 and K2 is 44.00 *175, there is -2.00DC difference. If the patient accepts -2.75 or -1.25DC then the patient must be evaluated for “Higher-order of aberrations. Contoura is only the superior profile which removes higher orders of aberrations thus makes the cornea surface smoother.
Iris and pupil registration is essentially the best method which is measured by “Topolyser” and through the wavenet inbuilt by Alcon, the data is transferred to Ex500 ablation machines.
Contoura ensures that your recovery period is optimized and post-operative symptoms are lessened. The technique is based on imprinting your cornea with multiple scans and interpreting it with a high level of accuracy.
