Enhanced Vision Quality with Contoura™ Vision Topography-Guided LASIK

shutterstock_222368095The eye surgeons here at The Eye Institute of Utah are very excited to announce the arrival of the most advanced laser platform currently available in the United States: Contoura™ Vision Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction. Recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Contoura™ Vision is a step into the future of LASIK surgery, offering a way to improve the quality of vision so significantly that many patients can see more clearly without corrective eyewear than they ever did with it.

Quite simply, our ophthalmologists believe that there is no other LASIK technology currently available that compares with Contoura™ Vision when it comes to accuracy and precision. This diagnostic technology is able to meticulously identify and record irregularities in the cornea’s curvature as well as its optics. During LASIK, this information is combined with the patient’s corrective eyewear prescription to dramatically improve vision for those suffering from nearsightedness (myopia) and astigmatism. While standard LASIK surgery has been helping individuals enhance correct visual refractive errors for many years, Contoura™ Vision takes the treatment a step further by offering even greater degrees of enhanced vision quality. Potential benefits of this technique can also include a reduced “glare” at night and even an increase in reading speed.

You can learn much more about the benefits of Contoura™ Vision here. One of our LASIK surgeons will be happy to meet with you for an initial consultation and eye evaluation to determine whether this treatment is ideal for your needs.

The entire team at The Eye Institute of Utah is excited to bring Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction to our patients in Salt Lake City and the Intermountain West. Please contact us today with any questions you may have, or to schedule a consultation.
