  • What Is Contoura Vision Eye Surgery?

    Contoura vision, commonly called topography-guided surgery, is a type of laser eye surgery used for vision correction. It is a form of LASIK surgery that utilizes cutting-edge technology to map and reshape the cornea. It is a highly customized type of LASIK surgery that involves creating 22,000 points on the cornea for a highly-accurate correction of corneal irregularities and visual axis.

    This procedure is designed to correct common vision issues such as farsightedness (hyperopia), nearsightedness (myopia), and astigmatism. Individuals who are not eligible to undergo LASIK surgery due to abnormalities in the cornea can also get good results with this advanced technique.

    Contoura vision is considered a developed form of LASIK surgery because it offers a more personalized approach to vision correction. It aims to provide patients with better visual results and reduced side effects, such as glare and halos, compared to traditional LASIK techniques.

    Who Is Considered For Contoura Vision Treatment?

    Before considering any treatment, it is always recommended to speak with a professional about whether it is accurate for you or not. Contoura vision treatment is no exception. To be a suitable candidate for the contoura vision treatment, you must:

    • Be at least 18 years of age
    • Not have any pre-existing eye diseases such as cataracts
    • Not be pregnant or nursing
    • Have a spherical power that is not greater than 8D
    • Have a steady eyeglass or contact lens prescription
    • Not have had any previous refractive surgery
    • Not be suffering from any major corneal pathology

    If you are unsure whether you meet the conditions for contoura vision, you should schedule a consultation with an eye doctor who can help evaluate your candidacy. During your consultation, the surgeon will thoroughly examine your eyes. This will help decide whether you are a good candidate for the surgery and also what kind of outcomes you can expect. If you are found to be a suitable candidate for contoura vision eye surgery, the surgeon will develop a treatment plan for you. This treatment plan will take into account your individual requirements and goals.

    Diagnostic Tests Performed Before Contoura Vision Surgery

    Before undergoing contoura vision eye surgery or any LASIK surgery, it’s important to undergo a series of diagnostic tests. These tests help determine if you are eligible for the surgery and ensure your eyes are healthy. The diagnostic tests may include the following:

    The results of these tests, along with a consultation with your eye surgeon, will determine whether you are a good candidate for contoura vision surgery. It’s vital to have a thorough evaluation to ensure your safety and the success of the surgery.

    Procedure Of Contoura Vision Surgery

    Here is an overview of the contoura vision procedure:

    • Contoura vision eye surgery begins with a comprehensive eye examination and consultation with an experienced eye surgeon. During the consultation, the surgeon will evaluate your eye health, vision prescription, and suitability for the surgery.
    • If you are considered a suitable candidate for the surgery, your eyes will undergo advanced corneal mapping using a device known as a corneal topographer. This forms a clear 3D map of your cornea, identifying even the most subtle abnormalities. It also helps the surgeon to create a personalized treatment plan, which results in better vision than traditional approaches.
    • On the day of the surgery, your eye will be numbed with local anesthesia, and your surgeon will form a protective corneal flap using a femtosecond laser or microkeratome.
    • With the corneal flap gently lifted, a contoura vision laser is used to reshape the cornea according to the customized treatment plan. The laser ablates small amounts of corneal tissue to correct the refractive errors and improve vision.
    • After the cornea is reshaped, the protective flap is carefully repositioned onto the treated area. The flap attaches naturally without the need for sutures.
    • The entire contoura vision procedure is generally quick, with both eyes often treated during the same session. Most patients experience enhanced vision within a day or two, although personal recovery times may vary.

    What Are The Risks And Complications Associated With Contoura Vision Surgery?

    Contoura vision eye surgery, like any surgical procedure, is associated with some risks and complications. While it is considered safe and effective for correcting vision problems, it’s essential to be aware of these potential risks before surgery. In addition, it’s important to discuss these risks with your surgeon and weigh the benefits against the potential complications. Some of the risks and complications associated with contoura vision surgery include the following:

    1. Corneal ectasia: In very rare cases, counting for about 0.3%, the patient suffers from corneal ectasia, post contoura vision surgery. It is a medical condition in which the cornea becomes weakened and bulges out, leading to vision distortion. This type of situation occurs when a high amount of nearsightedness requires correction or when the patient’s cornea is thinner than the average.
    2. Dryness and redness of the eye: This is majorly considered a temporary phenomenon but could stretch for a longer period, depending on case to case. Patients can suffer from dryness and red-eye post their contoura vision surgery if their evaluation or testing before the surgery was not done correctly. If the patient continues to suffer from dryness or redness in the eye for a longer time, this means an unidentified problem has not been appropriately diagnosed before the surgery.
    3. Infection: Although rare, there is a risk of eye infection after surgery. This can lead to redness, pain, discharge, and impaired vision. 
    4. Flap complications: The probability of occurrence of flap complications after contoura vision surgery in patients is extremely low for about 2 in 1000 patients. These complications include irregular fragmented flaps, buttonholes, partial flaps, etc.
    5. Undercorrection or overcorrection: In some cases, the surgery may not achieve the expected level of vision correction. This can result in undercorrection (where you still need glasses or contacts) or overcorrection (where you may need additional surgery or treatment to restore the vision).
    6. Halos and dual vision: Halos is a problem that happens due to the scattering of the light caused by the fluid present in the newly treated cornea. If the problem persists in patients for a long period after surgery, it becomes a serious concern and will need immediate attention. The extended problem may be a result of induced abnormalities by lasers or if the surgery was not centered accurately.
    7. Irregular astigmatism: In some possibilities, the surgery may cause irregular astigmatism, which can lead to distorted or blurry vision. Additional treatments may be necessary to address this issue.

    It’s important to note that most contoura vision surgeries are successful, and most patients experience significant improvements in their vision without experiencing severe complications. However, the risk of complications differs depending on numerous factors, such as the person’s eye health, the surgeon’s skill, and the technology used during the contoura vision procedure. Following the surgeon’s post-operative instructions is also important in minimizing the risks and achieving the best possible result.

    Lifestyle Changes Required After Contoura Vision Eye Surgery

    Here are some lifestyle changes to follow after contoura vision eye surgery:

    What Is The Contoura Vision Surgery Cost In India?

    Contoura vision cost in India ranges from Rs. 95,000 to Rs. 1,05,000. However, several factors can impact the overall contoura vision surgery cost in India. Some factors that influence the cost include the following:

    Is Contoura Vision Surgery Covered Under Insurance?

    Contoura vision surgery, like other refractive eye surgeries such as LASIK, is covered under insurance when considered medically necessary. If you have a medical condition like keratoconus, which causes severe irregular astigmatism and impairs your vision, your insurance provider might consider contoura vision eye surgery as a medically necessary treatment to enhance your visual function. In some cases, contoura vision may be deemed medically necessary if you have already undergone cataract surgery or other eye surgeries, and refractive error correction becomes essential to achieve functional vision.

    However, even if your surgery is deemed medically necessary, there may still be out-of-pocket expenses, such as deductibles or copayments, depending on your insurance plan. Always contact your insurance company to understand your specific case and obtain precise information about your coverage options and requirements.

    FAQs around Contoura Vision Surgery

    Is Contoura LASIK better than traditional LASIK?

    Contoura LASIK and traditional LASIK are both effective approaches for correcting vision problems. However, the results of contoura surgery are better than LASIK in terms of visual clarity and correction in refractive error. Some of the patients experience corrections better than 6/6 after contoura vision surgery. This surgery is designed to be highly accurate due to the detailed corneal mapping. This precision may result in better visual acuity and a reduced likelihood of needing retreatments.

    Does Contoura Vision surgery hurt?

    Contoura vision is a safe and effective procedure for improving vision and reducing the need for glasses or contact lenses. While the procedure is typically not painful as it is performed under local anesthesia, patients may experience mild discomfort or irritation during recovery. However, this is usually manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers or medicines prescribed by your surgeon.

    Can I watch TV right after laser eye surgery?

    In most cases, watching TV or any other type of digital screen is safe 2 days after the surgery. Initially, you may experience sensitivity to bright light, halos, etc., which will take some days to improve. You can return to your normal routine and other activities after getting approval from the doctor.

    How much does Contoura Vision cost in India?

    In India, the cost of Contoura Vision surgery ranges from Rs. 95,000 to Rs. 1,35,000 approximately. This is only an estimated range that might vary for each patient due to various factors, such as the extent of correction, surgeon’s fee, diagnostic tests, post-surgery medications, etc.

    Will health insurance pay for Contoura Vision surgery?

    Typically, vision correction or refractive surgeries are covered by health insurance only if the patient’s refractive power is equal to or higher than 7.5 Diopters. If the power is below this limit, then insurance companies won’t cover the cost of treatment.

    Are Contoura Vision results permanent?

    Contoura Vision and other forms of laser eye surgeries are effective as they permanently reshape the cornea. Due to this, the results are long-lasting, and the patient enjoys improved vision for a long time. However, after age 40, the patient’s eye health may start to decline, and refractive errors might develop again.
