Contoura™ Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction
At Eye Doctors of Washington, we strive to offer the most state-of-the-art treatment options to our patients. One of the latest technological advancements in the field of ophthalmology is the introduction of FDA-approved topography-guided laser vision correction, also known as Contoura Vision™. This revolutionary technique, which can be used with our innovative ALLEGRETTO Wavelight® EX500 excimer laser, allows for vision correction that is more precise than ever before. In fact, following clinical studies, it was found that approximately 90% of patients who underwent treatment with Contoura Vision™ were able to achieve uncorrected vision that was as good, if not better than what could be accomplished with corrective lenses (glasses or contacts). Additionally, it was found that this technique can reduce glare at night and potentially increase reading speed.
Topography-guided laser vision correction can be implemented as part of LASIK or PRK surgery. As the most advanced laser platform currently available in the United States, topography-guided laser vision correction goes beyond addressing a patient’s prescription alone. With this new technology, the imperfections, curvature, and optics of the cornea can all be measured and recorded. Due to these improved diagnostic capabilities, we can now integrate this information along with the patient’s prescription, helping us to provide patients with the most accurate outcomes possible.
