Hi doctor,

What is the difference between IntraLasik and Contoura Lasik?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

IntraLasik is a method in which the corneal flap is taken by laser. In regular Lasik, the corneal flap is taken by a mechanical device which has a metal blade. The rest of the procedures are the same. Contoura vision is a personalized Lasik in which the laser correction is done according to the size and specifications of the individual's eye. It is something like getting a shirt specially stitched to the individual's size, whereas regular Lasik is like buying a ready-made shirt.
