Contoura Vision – The Next Generation In LASIK In The Valley

Contoura LASIK is the NEXT GENERATION in LASIK and is now available at our new state-of-the-art laser center in Edinburg. Contoura Vision is the first major advancement in laser vision correction in more than a decade and takes the already proven results of conventional LASIK to the next level.

A New Method of LASIK To Take Your Vision Beyond 20/20

In fact, during the Contoura FDA clinical trial, nearly 1/3 of patients (30.9%) could see better after LASIK than they could see before with their best glasses prescription.1 It is the first laser vision correction procedure to receive FDA labeling that indicates the potential for Contoura patients to enjoy a higher quality of vision than is possible with either glasses or contacts. The leading eye surgeons of Thurmond Eye Associates are among the first practices in the Valley to offer patients the added benefit of the breakthrough Contoura LASIK procedure.

22,000 Ways To Improve Your Vision

Contoura is a topography-guided method of LASIK that uses an advanced Topolyzer to map 22,000 unique topography points of the surface of your cornea. Contoura uses this information to direct our Ex 500 Wavelight Excimer laser to smooth any irregularities on the surface of your cornea.  A comprehensive LASIK evaluation at Thurmond Eye Associates in our new Edinburg office can determine if Contoura can take your vision BEYOND glasses, BEYOND contacts and BEYOND 20/20.

No other LASIK laser vision correction procedure in the Valley uses topography-guided technology to perform LASIK.

Impressive Results In The FDA LASIK Study for Contoura Vision

1 year post procedure:

  • 15.7% of eyes 20/10 or better
  • 31.6% of eyes 20/12.5 or better
  • 68.8% of eyes 20/16 or better
  • 92.7% of eyes 20/20 or better
  • 96.5% of eyes 20/25 or better

It is important to understand that not all LASIK patients are ideal candidates for Contoura Vision LASIK. It is also important to understand that the results achieved during the FDA clinical trials may differ from results achieved with Contoura Vision in private practices. Only a thorough eye evaluation and comprehensive measurements can confirm your candidacy for Contoura Vision.
