What is Contoura LASIK?

Responsive image

Contoura LASIK is a state-of-the-art laser vision correction surgery that can provide excellent results for people with a wide range of vision problems. It is especially well-suited for people with corneal irregularities, such as thin corneas, ectasia, and dry eye.

If you are considering Contoura LASIK, be sure to choose a qualified and experienced surgeon. The surgeon will perform a comprehensive eye exam to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure and to discuss your expectations.

On the day of surgery, you will be given numbing eye drops and a mild sedative. The surgeon will then use a femtosecond laser to create a thin flap in the cornea. The flap is then lifted up and an excimer laser is used to reshape the underlying corneal tissue. The flap is then replaced and the eye heals naturally.

The recovery from Contoura LASIK is typically quick and easy. Most people experience some mild discomfort and blurred vision for the first few days. However, most people are able to return to work or school within a week.


If you are interested in learning more about Contoura LASIK, be sure to schedule a consultation with an eye doctor at The Eye Foundation.
