The ORA® “Optiwave Refractive Analysis” Intraoperative Wavefront Aberrometer provides surgeons with on-demand real-time measurements of the patient’s eye during cataract surgery. Prior to ORA®, ophthalmologists were unable to assess the quality of vision during a cataract procedure, and would often have to wait until weeks or even months after the surgery to determine the accuracy of the surgical results.
Using this revolutionary technology, Denver LASIK surgeon Dr. Lewis can evaluate the optical conditions in the eye throughout the cataract procedure and make surgical decisions at the precise moment that can best effect visual outcomes. The measurement occurs when and where it matters most– during the surgical procedure while the patient is on the table – not afterwards. ORA® can assist surgeons in more accurately determining factors such as intraocular lens implant accuracy and astigmatism correction.
How ORA® Works:
ORA® works by directing a beam of low intensity laser light into the eye during the surgical procedure. The laser light reflects off of the patient’s retina, and sensors in the ORA® instrument analyze the reflected wave of light exiting the eye. This on-demand, real time analysis measures all of the eye’s unique optical characteristics, and gives the surgeon an accurate measurement of the eye’s focusing capabilities. ORA® is the first intraoperative wavefront aberrometer, made by WaveTec Vision.
