Contoura Vision is a laser eye surgery used to correct vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It is typically a quick and relatively painless procedure, and many patients can see an improvement in their vision within a few hours of the surgery. The recovery process is usually short, and patients can often return to normal activities within a few days. Contoura Vision has a high patient satisfaction rate, with many patients reporting significant improvements in their vision and overall quality of life after undergoing the procedure.
WHY IS CONTOURA VISION DONE?
When the cornea, the transparent front surface of the eye, is not completely spherical, it can result in refractive errors, which can lead to light being focused improperly on the eye’s retina. As a result, vision could become foggy or distorted.
Contoura Vision is designed to correct these refractive errors by reshaping the cornea using advanced laser technology. The procedure is performed by a skilled eye surgeon and is typically an outpatient procedure that takes only a few minutes to complete.
People may choose to undergo Contoura Vision for various reasons, including improving their vision and reducing or eliminating their need for glasses or contacts. The procedure may also be recommended for people who are not suitable candidates for other types of laser eye surgery, such as LASIK.
BENEFITS OF CONTOURA VISION
It is a highly precise and personalized procedure that uses advanced laser technology to reshape the cornea, the clear front surface of the eye, to improve vision. Some potential benefits of Contoura Vision include:
- Improved visual acuity: The goal of Contoura Vision is to improve the clarity and sharpness of your vision. Many people experience significant improvement in their vision after the procedure, with some achieving a 20/20 vision or better.
- Reduced dependence on glasses or contacts: Contoura Vision can help reduce or eliminate your need for glasses or contacts, depending on the degree of your refractive error, which is especially beneficial for active people or occupations that make it difficult to wear glasses or contacts.
- Quick recovery: Contoura Vision is typically an outpatient procedure that takes only a few minutes to perform. After the treatment, most patients can resume their regular activities in a day or two, and the recovery period is typically brief and painless.
- High success rate: Contoura Vision has a high success rate, with most people experiencing significant improvement in their vision after the procedure. It is crucial to remember that the process could only be appropriate for some people and that individual outcomes can change.
- Customized treatment: Contoura Vision is a highly personalized procedure tailored to each patient’s specific needs, which can help to ensure the best possible outcome for each person.
HOW IS THIS DONE?
It is typically performed by a skilled eye surgeon and is an outpatient procedure that takes only a few minutes to complete.
The procedure is performed using a state-of-the-art laser called the Visual Aids Centre . The laser is used to reshape the cornea, the eye’s clear front surface, to improve vision. The laser is carefully controlled and guided by a computer, which helps to ensure a high level of accuracy and precision.
After the procedure, you will cover the eye with a protective shield to help protect them while it heals.
It is important to follow the post-operative care instructions provided by the eye surgeon to ensure the best possible outcome from the procedure, which may include using eye drops, avoiding certain activities, and returning for follow-up visits as directed.
For many people, Contoura Vision can significantly improve their visual acuity and possibly lessen or completely remove the need for glasses or contacts. Most patients can resume their normal activities within a day or two of the operation, which is typically short and painless.
Although Contoura Vision has a high success rate, it’s crucial to remember that everyone may need to be a better candidate for the treatment and that results may differ from person to person. If Contoura Vision is the best choice, you must get a complete eye exam and consultation with a licensed eye surgeon.
