Am I a good candidate for Contoura LASIK?

Responsive image

Contoura LASIK is a type of laser vision correction surgery that uses a 3D map of your cornea to create a personalized treatment plan. This makes it a good option for people with corneal irregularities or other conditions that may not be suitable for traditional LASIK surgery.

To be a good candidate for Contoura LASIK, you must be:

  • Over the age of 18
  • Have a stable eyeglass prescription for at least one year
  • Have up to -9.00 diopters of myopia (nearsightedness) or up to -8.00 diopters of myopia and 3.00 diopters of astigmatism
  • Be in good overall health

Other factors that may make you a good candidate for Contoura LASIK include:

  • Having corneal irregularities, such as thin corneas, ectasia, or dry eye
  • Having not had other eye surgeries, such as LASIK or PRK
  • Being willing to follow your surgeon's instructions carefully during recovery

If you are interested in Contoura LASIK, the best way to determine if you are a good candidate is to schedule a consultation with an eye doctor. They will perform a comprehensive eye exam and discuss your individual needs and goals to determine if Contoura LASIK is right for you.

Here are some additional things to consider when deciding if Contoura LASIK is right for you:

  • Your expectations: Contoura LASIK is a very effective surgery, but it is important to have realistic expectations about the results. You should not expect perfect vision after surgery. However, most people who have Contoura LASIK experience a significant improvement in their vision and no longer need glasses or contact lenses.
  • Your lifestyle: Contoura LASIK is a good option for people with active lifestyles who want to be free from the hassle of glasses and contact lenses. However, it is important to note that Contoura LASIK is a surgical procedure, and there is always some risk involved.
  • Your budget: Contoura LASIK is more expensive than traditional LASIK. However, many people find that the benefits of Contoura LASIK are worth the extra cost.

If you are considering Contoura LASIK, be sure to talk to your eye doctor about all of your options and make sure you understand the risks and benefits of the procedure.

At Eye Foundation, take the first step toward clearer vision by scheduling an appointment for a Contoura LASIK consultation. We understand the importance of addressing corneal irregularities and improving your eyesight.
