Phorcides for Contoura

Phorcides is clinical decision support software.

It is meant as an advisory tool to allow surgeons to consider the optical effects of topographic treatments and advise on the appropriate treatment for a patient. It provides analytic support to understand how and why treating topography affects a patient’s spherical and astigmatic Contoura treatment. It is meant to assist with calculations for primary LASIK treatments.

Surgeons who use this software must still use their own training and judgement and rely on the appropriate examination and diagnostic tests necessary for LASIK surgery. Surgeons who use Phorcides must still arrive at their own independent determination regarding the proper treatment.
