Mark C. Lobanoff, MD Discusses Contoura Vision Treatment on Fox 9

Mark C. Lobanoff, MD was a featured guest on KMSP Fox 9 on June 26, 2016 where he discussed Contoura Vision Treatment. North Suburban Eye Specialists recently became the first eye care facility in Minnesota to perform Alcon’s Contoura Vision Treatment, a topography-guided LASIK treatment designed to provide surgeons the ability to perform more personalized procedures for patients with nearsightedness, or nearsightedness with astigmatism, based on the unique corneal topographic of each eye. The new procedure signifies a massive advancement in LASIK technology in the last 10 years and is the first procedure to offer improved night vision. With this new technology Dr. Lobanoff can offer you a customized LASIK surgery specifically for your eyes with the highest degree of safety.  North Suburban’s LASIK center has such advanced technology that many patients who have been told by other doctors that they are not candidates for LASIK actually can successfully have surgery with Dr. Lobanoff.
