What to Expect:
The Contoura® Vision Walkthrough

It's normal to feel a little nervous when you undergo a procedure
like laser eye surgery. Safety is Contoura® Vision's highest priority
with every patient, so here's what you can expect before and during the procedure.

Before your Contoura®
Vision Procedure

Step 1

Your eye doctor will perform a preliminary eye exam to determine if Contoura® Vision is right for you. This part will be non-invasive and painless.

Step 2

Your eye doctor will then take the measurements needed to create an accurate map of your cornea's topography.

During Your Procedure

Step 1

On the day of the procedure, you will receive anesthetic eye drops to numb your eyes.

Step 2

Guided by your personalized topography profile, the laser will correct your vision by precisely reshaping your cornea based on up to 22,000 elevation points.1

Step 3

In minutes, the procedure will be over and healing begins – generally without pain or bandages.

The procedure may vary from clinic to clinic.

Help with the healing
