The growing popularity of laser cataract surgery has helped create some technological advances. Previously, ophthalmologists could only learn so much about your eyes before they operated, which made it difficult to restore perfect vision to cataracts patients. The Optiwave Refractive Analysis System, or ORA, helps make the procedure much more accurate.
If you want the improved results that come from the ORA System, you should know that the ophthalmologists at Seeta Eye Centers include this technology as a standard part of our laser cataract surgery. To learn more about laser cataract surgery at Seeta, call 845-454-1025 to schedule an appointment with us.
Improving the Fit of Your Intraocular Lenses
Modern cataract surgery involves replacing the lens of your eye with an intraocular lens (IOL), but it is only recently that we’ve been able to use lenses that sharpen your vision and correct eye conditions that weaken it. This means that the tools we use to analyze your eye before, during, and after cataract surgery matter more than ever.
The ORA System is a huge improvement on existing technology, allowing our professional eye doctors to:
- Analyze a wavefront image of your eye
- Determine the power and magnitude of your IOL.
- Detect any existing astigmatism.
- Build a lens customized to your specific visual needs.
- Adjust the positioning of the lens as needed during surgery.
Optiwave Refractive Analysis also makes things easier for the eye doctors at Seeta Eye Centers. Our ophthalmologists get more accurate information delivered quickly, all with a device that can fit over existing equipment. This allows us to take advantage of great new technology without having to charge more to cover costs: ORA comes with any laser cataract surgery.
A New Approach to Treating Astigmatism
Advances in the construction of toric intraocular lenses also allow your eye doctor to treat any existing astigmatism you may have. An astigmatism occurs when the back of your eye is imperfectly round, causing something similar to double vision in a single eye.
The Optiwave Refractive Analysis System can treat astigmatism by:
- Mapping the curvature of your eye and finding the defect.
- Determining what type of intraocular lens can best fix this defect.
- Show the doctor how the lens affects your vision as it is being placed.
When you go to an ophthalmologist that uses the ORA system in their laser cataract surgeries, you’re much more likely to get an optimal outcome. And when you combine the technological advances of ORA with the skill of the ophthalmologists at Seeta Eye Centers, you have something truly special.
