Are You Considering Contoura Vision in Rochester NY?

Robbins Eye is committed to delivering the highest successful outcomes with regards to vision correction results with the least complications. We do this by blending the most advanced technology available and a surgeon with the most experience and skill.

We are one of the first eye care centers in the country to offer Contoura Vision, a breakthrough quantum leap in LASIK surgery. Contoura is the game changing advance that both surgeons and patient have desired to move the bar even higher.

If you are nearsighted (difficulty seeing at a distance), and even if you also have astigmatism (imperfect curvature of the eye that can blur near and distance vision), Contoura Vision is the LASIK option most likely to give you clear vision without glasses or contact lenses. It’s the option that is the most customized to your eyes in ways never before possible.

Why Contoura Visions Correction? Why is it considered superior to wavefront guided or wavefront optimized LASIK?

image-02In the clinical trial that led to FDA approval of Contoura Vision:

98% of patients who had the Contoura procedure said they would choose it again.

The procedure reduced complaints of glare and decreased sensitivity to light, difficulty reading, and difficulty driving at night compared with what patients were previously experiencing with their glasses or contacts

While 20/20 is considered normal vision, and 92% of patients had 20/20 or better vision after their Contoura Vision procedure. A published study established that nearly 65% of eyes treated with Contoura® Vision experienced 20/16 vision or better,while 34.4% could see 20/12 or better.  That’s not quite the 20/5 vision of an eagle but it is close and significantly better than any previously reported outcomes..

Contoura Vision correction procedure produced more successful results with fewer undesired side effects.

WHY IS CONTOURA VISION CORRECTION THE ULTIMATE LASIK PROCEDURE AVAILABLE TODAY?

Contoura Vision is a unique topography-guided LASIK procedure because of the way it maps the eye to guide treatment. To put numbers on the differences, conventional LASIK took only two parameters to determine the treatment profile. The SMILE procedures also only incorporates only two variables to determine treatment just like an eyeglass prescription. With wavefront guided LASIK 200 data points were utilized to create a more customized surgical plan. To do so, it mixed information from the cornea and internal lens of the eye and created a mathematical solution. In contrast, Contoura LASIK procedure measures 22,000 points all obtained from the actual corneal surface that is being treated and reshaped. It doesn’t take a degree in advanced mathematics to deduce that 22,000 measurements is better than 200 measurements, especially when the data is gleaned from the actual surface being treated.

The Wavelight EX-500 excimer laser takes the measurements and uses them to produce a treatment pattern that polishes and smoothes the cornea so all of the light rays passing through it reach the retina at the back of the eye uniformly. The end result is better vision in bright and dim lighting.
