What is Contoura vision surgery?

Contoura Vision takes LASIK corrective surgery to a new height. Contoura Vision is a computer-guided topographic mapping technique that maps microscopic contours of the cornea. The cornea is the clear front of the eye. This procedure treats irregularities of the curvature of the cornea as well as optics.

What does laser eye treatment do?

What is it? Laser eye surgery, or laser vision correction, involves using lasers to reshape the front surface (cornea) of your eyes so that you can focus better. It can correct short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism.
