Patients in the communities of Encino and West Hills, CA who have been diagnosed with cataracts may be overwhelmed at deciding what treatment, if any, is best for improving their vision. At the practice of Dr. David Aizuss, patients are encouraged to ask about treatment options such as the ORA system for cataract surgery.
What is the ORA system?
ORA stands for Optiwave Refractive Analysis. This is a special technology that has been developed and used in the last decade for use durng the treatment of cataracts intraoperatively. This procedure is used to measure the power of the eye after the cataract has been removed to ensure that the optimal lens implant power is used in your eye. This ORA measurement is readily available with Dr. David Aizuss of California in his state-of-the-art practice.
How is a cataract surgery performed using this advanced technology?
During cataract surgery, Dr. David Aizuss will remove the natural lens that is cloudy and not allowing you to achieve your best possibe vision. Then, an intraocular lens implant, or IOL, is used to replace the natural lens of the eye. The ORA device is attached to the surgeon’s microscope and uses intraoperative wavefront aberrometry to measure the refractive power of the eye. This measurement is then used to calculate the proper implant power needed and the placement of the IOL to ensure precision results. The ORA system offers a more customized refractive cataract surgery for patients thanks to almost 40 instantaneous calculations made while treating the eye and the cataract.
Who is a candidate for ORA treatment?
The ORA technology is helpful for all patients who are undergoing cataract surgery. Even patients who have had other concerns such as extreme nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism or prior laser vision correction such as LASIK can enjoy the benefits of this advanced measurement device. Dr. David Aizuss encourages patients to ask about including the ORA measurements during their evaluation to determine if it is right for them.
