Contoura Topoguided LASIK
Newsom Eye is excited to announce the next generation for LASIK in Tampa with Contoura. The Wavelight Contoura Topographic Guided laser system is one of the most technologically advanced excimer laser systems available in the United States. In the FDA study, this laser technology produce the best results compared to previous FDA studies for myopia (nearsightedness) and myopic astigmatism (nearsightedness with astigmatism). This major leap forward in technology utilizes the WaveLight® Topolyzer ™ VARIO analyzer, which is capable of capturing extremely detailed maps of the cornea, using 22,000 data points. This information is used to analyze aberrations and corneal abnormalities.

Femtosecond Bladeless LASIK Technology
At Newsom Eye, we utilize All-Laser LASIK technology with the femtosecond laser. This technology replaces the older, outdated microkeratomes, i.e., “manual blades” of the past. Femtosecond laser technology virtually eliminates complications that were associated with outdated microkeratomes, allowing for a more precise and predictable outcome.
Bladeless LASIK technology works by utilizing computer guided software to create a tiny series of bubbles within the cornea. The bubbles are extremely tiny and concentrated, allowing for the protective corneal flap to be created. By using an ultra precise femtosecond LASIK, patients that were previously not deemed good candidates for LASIK due to thin corneas or other issues, might be good candidates with this bladeless LASIK technology.
Along with Contoura Topographic Guided technology, this advanced bladeless LASIK technology produces the finest results available. Dr. Newsom has performed thousands of corrective procedures and eye surgeries and was trained at the Mayo Clinic. You will not find a better solution for bladeless LASIK surgery anywhere.
AAAHC Surgery Center
Newsom Eye is changing the way bladeless LASIK eye surgery is performed. Many LASIK providers operate out of an office location or even in a strip mall. We offer a state-of-the-art LASIK surgery center. Newsom Eye sets a higher standard for surgical facilities, using only accredited, sterile surgical centers for total vision care. When it comes to the care of your eyes, you deserve the same surgical environment as any other surgery. The Tampa Surgery Center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). This is the highest nationally recognized standard of care for outpatient surgery centers.
