If you’ve been researching LASIK, you’ve probably heard a lot of terms floating around about the procedure and you might not know exactly what all of those terms mean. One of those terms that you may have heard is “Contoura.”
So, what exactly is Contoura?
Contoura is topography-guided LASIK. It is a custom LASIK procedure that involves corneal mapping and through that mapping of the cornea, a custom treatment plan is created based on a specific person’s cornea.
While all LASIK treatments use a laser to change the shape of the cornea and all deliver great results for the patient, a Contoura treatment goes a step further. A Contoura treatment is customized to the unique contours of an individual’s cornea by using a detailed corneal scan.
Before undergoing a Contoura procedure, the candidate undergoes the aforementioned extremely detailed scan of the cornea which allows for a custom treatment plan to be created that can more accurately accommodate the specific contours of the patient’s eye than a regular LASIK procedure. This scan measures 22,000 points on the cornea that are used to create a precise treatment plan. Isn’t that incredible?
