Hi… I wanted to do Contuora vision surgery for removing my spectacle . My age is 42 and powers are -5 cylindrical and -1 spherical with 110 and 65 axis. One doctor suggested that with -5 cylindrical power Contoura vision cannot be done and go for Refractive Lens Exchange / clear lens exchange or ICL. I visited another ophthalmologist for second opinion as I don’t want to extract my natural lens ,and he suggested that I can go with Contoura vision for spec removal. Now I am confused . Should I go with CV. At this point i am not interested to extract my natural lens. Looking for some help in this regard from experts. It’s a matter of eyes. I also have reading glass .

CV is a laser procedure to reshape the cornea, while RLE involves replacing the natural lens. ICL is another lens-based option. To make an informed choice, discuss your cornea's suitability for CV, the effectiveness of each procedure for your prescription, and potential risks with your doctors. Seek a third opinion if needed, as your eye health is important.
