What is CONTOURA® vision Topography-Guided Lasik?
CONTOURA® Vision is the latest FDA approved LASIK technology available for advanced custom LASIK technology. No other LASIK procedure available in the U.S. is this personalized and precise. CONTOURA® Vision improves upon the traditional Wavelight® LASIK procedure by using today’s most advanced mapping technology to map the unique contours of the surface of your cornea. The scanning procedure samples up to 22,000 elevation points on each eye to create a unique vision profile for you, and only you.

Using corneal topography measurements and data, Dr James Kelly is able to make additional calculations and detailed measurements to smooth out any irregularities on your cornea to ensure excellent results.
For certain patients, CONTOURA® Vision enables us to deliver an even better vision correction result than previously possible. FDA studies of patients who had CONTOURA® Vision demonstrated that:
