Cataract Surgery Technology – ORA System
The ORA System
The ORA system is an incredible technology that helps our eye doctors assess your eyes during your cataract procedure and select the right power IOL for your visual needs. Thanks to the ORA system, we can perform a more precise procedure and deliver more predictable outcomes, and you can enjoy the clearest, sharpest vision you have had in years.
During your cataract surgery, the ORA system uses Wavefront technology to collect real-time measurements of your eye and its structures, without coming into contact with your eye. This information helps us select the strength of IOL that is required for your eye – making it less likely that you will need glasses or contacts after surgery. The ORA system provides post-operative data so we can compare your results against the initial measurements.
The ORA system is also extremely helpful for the correction of astigmatism. The technology can assist our eye surgeons in performing limbal relaxing incisions, or when placing Toric lenses.
Since the system does not come in contact with your eye, it does not cause discomfort or increase the risk of side effects. It simply helps us perform a safer, faster and more precise procedure.
