Epi Contoura

April 12, 2024

Epi-Contoura is the latest type of topography-guided surface ablation system, and it has been shown to produce even better outcomes than custom PRK. This technology creates a more accurate three-dimensional map of the eye, to create a precise, individualized ablation profile for each patient.

The Epi Contoura procedure itself is very unique and precise. You can expect the surgery itself to be completed within 5 -10 minutes. There is no need for sedation or local anesthesia, only topical anaesthetic drops are used to numb the eye during the procedure.

After the procedure, you may experience some redness and watering of the eyes, but this should go away within a few hours. It is important to avoid rubbing or touching your eyes during this time.

Vision recovery is within a few days, and it will continue to improve over the next few weeks. Most people achieve their best vision within two to three weeks.

The procedure of Epicontoura is flapless and Bladefree. It is done using the Most sophisticated Wavelight EX - 500 Excimer Laser and it is one of the fastest Excimer laser in the world today. It uses a very advanced software to correct both Macro and Microaberrations of the cornea thereby making the corneal surface extremely uniform, thus allowing enhanced night vision, reduced glare and light sensitivity and making vision crisper and sharper with better contrast.

This procedure is ideal for those who are into contact sports like boxing, martial arts, or even games like hockey, football and cricket etc that carry a risk of injury to eye because this procedure ensures maximal corneal integrity as compared to flap based/ lenticule based corneal procedure.

Additionally, Epicontoura is the procedure of choice for thin corneas or corneas with asymmetrical curvatures and in those patients where lasik and silk and smile procedures are contraindicated.
