Expert Guidance During Cataract Surgery: ORA™ System

Prior to your cataract surgery, your doctor will determine what type and power of replacement Intraocular Lens (IOL) to implant in your eye. This choice is based on preoperative measurements of your eye and your vision goals.

However, the surgical process can alter these measurements slightly, making it difficult to pinpoint the exact power necessary to produce the very best vision results…until now.

At Eye Associates of Tucson we incorporate Optiwave Refractive Analysis (ORA) technology to provide real-time intraoperative measurements of your refractive error after the cloudy lens is removed – during surgery – so we can adjust the IOL power if necessary. The ORA system takes a Wavefront analysis of the eye after the cataract has been removed to calculate the proper IOL.

Benefits of the ORA System

With the ORA System, your Tucson cataract doctor can assess your eyes on-the-spot to:

  • Measure the true refractive power of your eye
  • Choose the IOL power that will provide a better visual outcome
  • Completely tailor your procedure
  • Reduce the need for follow-up surgeries

ORA technology is especially helpful for patients who have astigmatism. Patients are often amazed at how quickly their vision is restored.
