Contoura Vision: What to Expect?

Contoura™ Vision – Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction

The field of laser vision correction is constantly progressing. Since the advent of laser refractive surgery in the 1980s, more and more people across the world have been able to reduce the effects that nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism have had on their daily lives – and many have completely eliminated their need for corrective eyewear in order to see clearly. The efficacy of these procedures has continued to improve as the technology has advanced, and our providers at Campus Eye Group have established ourselves as leading voices in the development of new techniques.

What is Contoura and What is Unique About it?

The eye has two kinds of axes: the pupillary and visual axes. The pupillary axis passes through the center of the front sight, while the optical axis is the line that passes through the object of interest and fovea. Unlike other laser eye procedures, Contoura works on the visual axis, which results in better vision.  In fact, Contoura when added with LASIK can produce sharper results than LASIK, the most popular laser eye correction surgery.


ContouraTM Vision – Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction can optimize the surface of the eye’s cornea in such a way that it enhances the quality of vision better than has ever been possible before. One of the unique characteristics of the cornea is that it does not have a smooth surface. Contoura involves your ophthalmologist using a Topolyser to map the irregularities in your cornea and understand 22,000 unique data points. Understanding the individual data points enables your ophthalmologist to adjust your surgery accurately and effectively. Contoura targets the aberrations of the cornea that need to be corrected.


In clinical studies, ContouraTM Vision – Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction helped 90% of patients see as well or better without glasses than they did with glasses. It can benefit patients in several ways, helping them obtain a better quality of vision and reducing issues with night glare.


Although previous laser vision correction techniques have offered patients incredible precision and accuracy while reshaping the cornea and addressing visual refractive errors, ContouraTM Vision – Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction takes the treatment even further. Instead of just treating the refractive error, this technology utilizes unparalleled diagnostic capabilities to identify and record imperfections in the curvature of the cornea and the optics of the cornea, combining those measurements with the refractive error to give the eyes a better-focusing surface. The technique goes together with our state-of-the-art Excimer Laser, allowing our experienced eye surgeons to create a truly customized LASIK procedure that can enhance your eyesight with stunning results.
