Newsom Eye is excited to announce the next generation for LASIK in Tampa, Florida- 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.

Once a patient’s unique vision is captured using the WaveLight® Topolyzer ™ VARIO analyzer, the data is transferred to the WaveLight® Contoura™ computer. Next, the treatment is calculated using measurements analyzer data as well as combined information from the patient exam. This results in a highly detailed and precise level of vision correction that can allow for improved night vision, a better quality of vision and often produces better than 20/20 vision. 

In an FDA Study, visual acuity at 12 months showed the following results:

  • 92.7% of patients achieved 20/20 or better vision
  • 68.9% of patients achieved 20/16 or better vision
  • 31.6% of patients achieved 20/12.5 or better vision

In addition to excellent visual acuity, symptoms such as glare, halos, night driving issues and light sensitivity improved after topography-guided LASIK using Contoura™ technology.
