San Antonio Eye Specialists now offers Contoura Laser Vision Correction technology, the next generation in LASIK which uses the latest WaveLight® topographic-guided laser system developed by Alcon Pharmaceuticals. This is one of the most technologically advanced excimer laser systems available in the United States that uses 22,000 points to map the surface of the cornea.
The Best FDA LASIK Results to Date!
In FDA studies, this laser technology produced the best results compared to previous FDA studies for myopia (nearsightedness) and myopic astigmatism (nearsightedness with astigmatism). U.S.-based clinical trials conducted by Alcon showed that 12 months after surgery 92.6% of eyes that received topography-guided LASIK treatment achieved 20/20 vision or better, 64.8% experienced 20/16 vision or better, and 34.4% could see 20/12.5 or better. The outcomes also showed reductions in some of the visual symptoms associated with LASIK, including glare, light sensitivity, difficulty driving at night, and difficulty while reading.
