Advanced Lens Placement
At Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center, our practice combines experience, compassion, and technology to achieve optimal outcomes for our patients. To enhance precision and accuracy during cataract surgery, Dr. Justo uses the ORA® System.
Our patients in Phoenix, Sun City, Sun City West, Wickenburg and surrounding communities, have benefited from this technology, and it can help you achieve excellent results, too. Reach out to us today to schedule a consultation and learn more.
What is ORA®-guided Surgery?
During cataract surgery, an intraocular lens (IOL) is used to replace the lens affected by cataracts. Selecting the appropriate IOL is based on a number of factors, including any pre-existing medical conditions, and the patient's vision enhancement goals. The decision regarding which type of IOL to place will be made during a visit to our office. The power, placement, and alignment of your IOL all affect your results. Optiwave refractive analysis (ORA®) allows Dr. Justo to fine-tune these factors for optimal surgical results.
Previously known as OptiPlus, 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.
OAR® technology aids in:
- Confirming and selecting the appropriate implant lens power
- Diagnosing and managing astigmatism, which can be corrected using a premium toric IOL
- Aligning the implant during placement
Repeat measurements can be taken until the desired outcome is achieved, and the surgery can be customized to an exacting degree.
Benefits of the System
Before the introduction of the ORA® system, surgeons were unable to measure the level of their patients' vision improvement for weeks after cataract surgery. Now, accurate analysis can be performed during the procedure.
The ORA® system provides:
- Exacting analysis of data regarding visual outcome
- Optimized selection of your implant's power
- Enhanced placement of the IOL
In short, the ORA® System uses optimized algorithms to provide real-time feedback during surgery. As a result, Dr. Justo can operate in a more precise, efficient way.
Leaders in the Field
Throughout his career, Dr. Justo has incorporated advanced technology to provide safer, more accurate treatment.
