What makes Contoura Vision so accurate?


What makes Contoura Vision so accurate?

Imagine if there was a refractive procedure that was as unique to your eyes as a fingerprint is to you. Think of how accurate the results would be!

Well, such a personalised procedure really exists, and it’s called Contoura Vision. It’s one of the most precise vision correction surgeries out there and, unsurprisingly, very effective as well.

What is refractive surgery?

If you have nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia, a refractive surgery like LASIK, SMILE etc., can correct the error by reshaping your cornea through a laser. This ensures that your vision is improved, and you can stop relying on glasses to see clearly. These procedures are quick, safe and hassle-free.

Besides these, there’s another vision correction surgery called Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL), which implants an artificial lens on top of your natural lens instead of reshaping the cornea.

What makes Contoura Vision different?

A modern technique, Contoura Vision takes refractive error correction to a whole new level. It is a three-step correction technique which deploys a Femto Laser, Excimer Laser and a Topolyser.

The topolyser is a device that can map irregularities on your cornea. During Contoura Vision, it maps up to 22,000 unique deviation points on your cornea, giving the doctor a clear picture of how to correct the irregularities.

After the surgery, you will get much sharper vision. According to research, Contoura Vision has even provided patients with vision better than 20/20, which is generally considered as normal vision, in nearly 40% of patients. After this surgery, the quality of vision is even better than with glasses and contact lenses.

Another benefit of this procedure is that it corrects corneal irregularities in addition to specs removal.

What makes Contoura Vision so accurate?

Getting such detailed information about your cornea enables the eye expert to conduct a super-personalised treatment which leads to remarkable results.

Another thing that improves the accuracy of Contoura Vision is the axis that it works on. There are two kinds of axis in our eyes:


Axis This is referred to the line passing through the centre of the eyes

Visual Axis

This is the line passing through the centre of the vision area in the eye

Contoura Vision focuses on the Visual Axis, which leads to better results.

Is Contoura Vision safe?

It is one of the safest procedures out there. There are no blades or stitches, and you won’t even feel the slightest pain. You won’t require any injections or hospitalisation.

Once you are done with the surgery, you will be able to live life to the fullest and perform tasks like night-time driving more confidently.

Who is eligible for Contoura Vision?

Your doctor will analyse your eyes and medical profile to determine whether you’re a Contoura Vision candidate. However, there are certain general factors to keep in mind:

  • You must be over 18 years old
  • Your eyeglasses prescription should have been consistent in the past 6 months
  • Spherical power should not be greater than 8-10 D
  • There shouldn’t be any significant corneal pathology
