Alcon introduced Contoura Vision, an advancement in its WaveLight refractive portfolio during the annual meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) in Las Vegas, November 14-17, 2015.
Contoura Vision is a topography-guided LASIK treatment designed to provide surgeons the ability to perform more personalized laser procedures for patients with nearsightedness, or nearsightedness with astigmatism, based on the unique corneal topography of each eye.
“We are pleased to provide surgeons with a technology that has been shown to deliver visual acuity better than glasses or contact lenses for nearly one-third of patient eyes in a clinical trial setting,” said Franck Leveiller, Head of Research & Development for Alcon’s Surgical Franchise. “Backed by FDA approval and very positive clinical trial outcomes, surgeons can now offer a topography-guided treatment option for refractive surgery patients in the US.”
