WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE BETWEEN THE TWO, IF EVER GIVEN A CHOICE?-Wearing huge glasses or delicate lenses.
The majority of choices will be-Delicate lenses. No, doubt, sometimes it is irritable to wear specs every time, maybe because you find it an extra burden to handle.
BUT TECHNOLOGY BEING THE LIFE SAVIOUR NOWADAYS– Innovations in correcting vision have been around for centuries. With the technological advancement in eye surgery, the process has become highly efficient and sophisticated with no or few complications.
WHAT IS CONTOURA VISION?
It is a type of surgical program that is technically advanced and upgraded versions of other surgeries like routine laser surgery and LASIK surgery. The Contoura vision has another name, i.e. topography-guided LASIK surgery. Not only is this surgery an improved and reliable cure for general patients, but it also offers results for patients who were not eligible for LASIK surgery.
IS CONTOURA VISION EFFECTIVE?
Contoura vision offered the most reliable and enhanced form of eye surgery with its advanced techniques and increased suitabilities. It is known that some patients are unsuitable for LASIK and other surgeries due to their cornea irregularities.
The Contoura vision is an upgraded version which has no side effects or irregularities, and it is possible with every patient. It is also approved by the US FDA, which makes it safe and reliable to get it. Also, it is a more straightforward method to correct refractive errors and provides better visual clarity.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR CONTOURA VISION SURGERY?
To have a Contoura Vision eye surgery, one must get a proper medical test done under the supervision of an eye doctor. It will check your eligibility and guide you through the various specific eligibility criteria as follows:
- One should be above the age of 18 years.
- Should not face any Vascular or immunodeficiency diseases.
- One must have a steady prescription of the eyewear
- If one has <3D Power
- The eye power should not be spherical, i.e. >8D
IS THE EFFECT OF CONTOURA VISION PERMANENT?
Contoura vision is a technique that permanently eliminates the surface tissues in the cornea, which keeps the effect for a long time and is permanent. It is better to correct the cornea’s irregularities, which may not be possible in other kinds of eye surgeries. It is also a benefit for patients having astigmatism. Re-correcting the power of the lenses is also possible with Contoura vision, so with increasing age, if you find any reduction in vision clarity, you can get it correct.
Sometimes, its effects may decline, causing distorted and blurred vision. A follow-up enhancement procedure is carried out to restore sight to normal if a problem occurs.
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE FOR CONTOURA VISION?
Contoura vision works on the principle of topography and is performed by or under the supervision of an expert-trained ophthalmologist and performed on the raw image of the eye, i.e. Visual axis. It works on the essential principles of mapping around 22,000 points on the cornea, smoothens an eye cornea’s surface, and increases its visual clarity.
ARE THERE ANY RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS?
There are common risks of Contoura, and I vary slightly from person to person. They are:
- Development of dry eye syndrome.
- Development of visual symptoms, like glares
- Swelling (which can sometimes lead to Glaucoma)
Serious errors or complications during your recovery can reduce your Visual Acuity, but these cases are sporadic.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CONTOURA VISION?
The Contoura vision is mainly developed to enhance and remove the side effects of LASIK surgery. Its benefits are:
- It can be done at any age after 18
- No injections
- No equipment (Blades)
- No stitches
- No hospitalisation required
- Dependence on Glasses or spectacles reduces.
- Comparatively fewer side effects
- Sensitivity towards light decreases
WHAT MAKES CONTOURA VISION AND LASIK SURGERY DIFFERENT?
The results of Contoura vision are better as compared to LASIK surgery. Sometimes, the correction reaches more than 6/6. It helps you to provide clean and correct refractive errors.
Its utility is not limited to correct vision, but those with corneal curvature can benefit.
- IMPROVED TECHNOLOGY
Contoura vision is a technologically advanced and upgraded version of LASIK surgery. IT maps 22000 points on the cornea and works on the visual axis; on the other side, LASIK surgery works on 200 points.
- REDUCED COMPLICATIONS
In Contoura vision, tissue damage is less, healing is faster, and its complications are relatively less.
OTHER BENEFITS OFFERED BY CONTOURA VISION:
- Safety standards
With improved technology, safety standards have also been enhanced, reducing complications.
- US FDA Approved
The US FDA has approved Contour vision. This indicates the safety, reliability, and authenticity of this technology.
- Patient’s comfort
Contoura surgeries have no stitches, no pain, no injections, and no need to be hospitalised.
WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD BE TAKEN WHILE CHOOSING A CENTRE FOR CONTOURA VISION SURGERY?
- As the eyes are the most beautiful and vital organ of the human body, certain precautions and extra care should be taken in deciding the centre for Contoura Vision Surgery.
- Make sure that it has an expert-trained ophthalmologist.
- You should have your proper medical test done and recognise your suitability.
After the surgery, it is advisable not to spend long hours in front of the computer, laptop, or mobile phone screen, as it can cause dry eyes. One should take a short break every 15-30 minutes in front of the computer screen. Furthermore, using lubricants regularly will prevent dry eyes.
WHAT IS THE AVERAGE COST OF CONTOURA VISION?
There is not too much difference in the cost of the Contoura vision procedure and other LASIK surgery treatments. But, comparatively, the Contoura technique is a little expensive because it requires expert training and sophisticated services.
