Seeing with CONTOURA® VISION
The Rochester Eye and Laser Center has just added its newest advancement in laser technology-CONTOURA® VISION, a WaveLight® Excimer Laser System.
Just like your fingerprint is completely unique to you, CONTOURA VISION® creates a LASIK procedure that's completely unique to your eyes. The technology precisely maps up to 22,000 unique elevation points on each of your eyes. Wavefront-guided LASIK is more highly customized than traditional LASIK procedures.
The CONTOURA® VISION mapping allows you to experience reduced:
- Light sensitivity
- Difficulty driving at night
- Difficulty reading
It allows 92.6% of eyes treated to achieve 20/20 or better vision post procedure1.
The CONTOURA® VISION is approved for the following specific LASIK treatments:
- Reduction or elimination of nearsightedness of up to -12.00 diopters of sphere and up to 6.00 diopters of astigmatism at the spectacle plane.
- Reduction or elimination of farsightedness up to +6.00 diopters of sphere and up to 5.00 diopters of astigmatism at the spectacle plane, with a maximum manifest refraction spherical equivalent of +6.00 diopters.
- Reduction or elimination of naturally occurring mixed astigmatism of up to 6.00 diopters at the spectacle plane.
- Wavefront-guided reduction or elimination of nearsightedness of up to -7.00 diopters of sphere and up to 3.00 diopters of astigmatism at the spectacle plane.
Wavefront-guided LASIK treatment takes into account small, complex imperfections in the shape of your eye that can affect your vision.
We are excited to bring this latest technology to our Rochester area patients who want LASIK. Visit us to see if LASIK is right for you.
1 While CONTOURA® VISION has been shown to be safe and effective, it's still surgery. Like any surgical procedure, there can be complications and side effects. Make sure to discuss the risks and benefits of CONTOURA® VISION with Dr. Lindahl so you can make the informed decision that's best for you. The WaveLight® Excimer Laser Systems are only for use in patients who are 18 years of age or older (21 years of age or older for mixed astigmatism), who have documented evidence that their refraction did not change.
