Cataract & LASIK Specialist Dr. Jonathan Frantz utilizes an innovative technology called the ORA (Optiwave Refractive Analysis) System with VerifEye, which continuously monitors the measurements of a patient’s eye during their cataract surgery. This incredibly accurate, real-time display of the patient’s eye provides Dr. Frantz with an unprecedented level of valuable information about the eye that allows him to customize each patient’s procedure to give them the best visual outcome.
Prior to having this new technology, surgeons have been unable to assess the quality of vision during the procedure and would have to wait until weeks after the procedure to determine the accuracy of the results. The instantaneous feedback that Dr. Frantz gets from the VerifEye has proven to be invaluable for making minor adjustments in the surgical suite that allows him to confidently refine the patient’s lens power for an optimal outcome. This new technology takes our refractive cataract surgery procedure to the next level.
According to Dr. Frantz, there are many patient benefits to having ORA-guided cataract surgery:
- The ORA analysis can be utilized to optimize any cataract procedure, whether the patient is having Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery or basic cataract surgery, and regardless of the intraocular lens implant that the patient and he have selected.
- The analysis guides him in the correction of the patient’s eye to help ensure optimal outcomes.
- If a patient has astigmatism, the ORA System may also improve the accuracy of their correction to help reduce the chance that the patient will need eyeglasses after their cataract procedure.
ORA VerifEye maps out and analyzes the entire eye and gives the surgeon real time measurements as the surgery is performed. After the cataract has been removed, the surgeon can then can easily take a more precise measurement to help with the placement of the new lens.
Before ORA VerifEye, patients and surgeons would have to wait weeks to determine the accuracy of the surgical results. Now, that information is available right away. The state-of-the-art device provides an unprecedented new level of valuable information about your eye before, during, and after surgery, ensuring you receive the best vision results possible.
