Division of Ophthalmology, Medanta Hospital is proud to announce introduction & usage of Contoura Vision Topography Guided LASIK, a revolutionary approach to LASIK surgery. Contoura Vision LASIK is truly customized treatment for your eyes, which uses Topolyzer Vario, a unique diagnostic device in conjunction with WaveLight EX 500 Excimer laser to smooth out irregularities of your cornea.
Division of Ophthalmology, Medanta Hospital has always been in forefront in delivering excellent visual outcomes by using the most advance technologies. It is one of the few eye care centers in the country to offer Contoura Vision Topography Guided LASIK. If you are nearsighted (Difficulty seeing distance), farsighted (Difficulty in reading near) and even if you have astigmatism (imperfect curvature of eye that can blur the near and distance vision), Contoura Vision is the LASIK option most likely to give you clear vision without glasses and contact lenses. It is the option that provides the most accurate & personalized vision solution to your eyes.
Even though everyone’s eyes are unique, in the past LASIK surgery utilizes the same standard approach for everyone. It simply corrected your vision based on your current glasses or contact lens prescription. Contoura Vision is the first FDA approved Topography Guided LASIK, which provides a true customized treatment plan to each and every eye.
It uses innovative technology of Topolyzer Vario to map surface of your cornea sampling approximately 22,000 points. This provides a high quality and personalized data of your eyes which is then combined with your current glasses or contact lens prescription to derive a treatment plan with the help of software which is unique to your eyes. This treatment plan is automatically transferred to WaveLight EX500 excimer laser which programs itself to provide you fast, precise and safe LASIK surgery.
Multicenter clinical trial results demonstrate that Contoura Vision redefined the quality of vision with 30% of the eyes achieved better visual outcomes than glasses and contact lenses. 92% could see 6/6 or better. 64.8% could see 6/5 or better and 34% could see 6/4 or better.
Contoura Vision Topography Guided LASIK provides a wide, yet specific range of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
To undergo this procedure your vision needs to fall within that range. That is determined by a through eye examination and yes not all candidates are suitable for this procedure. You may not be able to have this procedure if you have certain ocular or systematic conditions or disease or are pregnant or breast feeding. You’ll also be tested for certain conditions like thin corneas and Dry Eye Syndrome, which could affect your ability to have surgery. Like any surgery, Contoura Vision has risks as well as benefits, which will also be explained to you during your consultation.
