It used to be that a surgeon needed to wait weeks after performing surgery to determine your vision results. Thanks to ORA, this is no longer the case. Now, during the procedure, your surgeon can take measurements of your eye. ORA measurements are taken after the clouded cataract is removed, when the surgeon has a clear view, allowing him to tailor the procedure to your individual eye and refine your visual outcome. No matter what premium cataract procedure you and your surgeon decide upon, you can feel confident that by adding the ORA System®, you’ll receive the best possible results.
ORA System™ is a cutting edge technology by Wavetec® that allows the doctors of Temas Eye Center, Institute to take a picture of the eye at the time of surgery to verify that the nearsightedness, farsightedness or the astigmatism was corrected, and that the exact correct powered Intraocular lens (IOL) was selected. Prior to the ORA System™, surgeons have been unable to assess the quality of vision during the procedure, and would have to wait until weeks after the procedure to determine the accuracy of the results.
The ORA System™ works by directing a beam of low intensity laser light into the eye during the surgical procedure. The laser light reflects off the back of your eye, and sensors in the ORA System™ device analyze the reflected wave of light exiting your eye. This real-time analysis measures all of the eye's unique optical characteristics, and gives your cataract surgeon an accurate measurement of your eye's focusing capabilities.
The doctors at the Temas Eye Center, are committed to providing the highest quality of vision possible to their patients. Using the ORA System™ helps them achieve this goal, because for the first time ever, the surgeon is able to correct the eye prescription in “real time” so the patient may not need any glasses after surgery.
I couldn't have asked for better treatment or outcome. The staff at both your office and the surgical center are superior by every measure. They are professional, knowledgeable and respectful of all patients. It was almost a fun experience! Although the cataracts in both eyes had impaired my vision, the thought of eye surgery was scary. But - my fears were all for "naught" - it was such a quick, PAINLESS procedure, I wondered why I had waited so long!
