What Does ORA Technology Mean to You and Your Cataract Surgery?
During cataract surgery, an intraocular lens (IOL) is used to replace the lens affected by cataracts. The power, placement, and alignment of your IOL all affect your resulting vision. Optiwave Refractive Analysis (ORA®) allows Dr. Emilio M. Justo to fine-tune these factors for optimal surgical results.
The ORA® system uses a beam of low intensity laser light. During surgery, this beam is directed into the eye and bounces off the retina (the "screen" at the back of the eye that gathers visual information). Once the light is reflected back, sensors analyze the information to measure the eye's focusing capabilities.
ORA® technology aids in confirming and selecting the lens power to reach the most precise vision improvement possible. It also helps Dr. Justo to diagnose and manage astigmatism, and properly align your implant during placement.
Repeat measurements can be taken until the desired outcome is achieved, and the surgery can be customized to an exacting degree.\
Why Technology Matters
Dr. Justo has incorporated advanced technology to provide safer, more accurate treatment. Our practice is proud to be one of the first in the state to offer ORA®-guided cataract surgery. By passing on the advantages made possible by this exciting technology, we are able to further improve results after cataract surgery. Ultimately, these state-of-the-art technologies allow us to provide an even higher quality of care.
