ORA Improves The Sight Of Cataract Sufferers

June 12, 2014

ORA

Overtime the lenses of your eye begin to cloud. This clouding is called a cataract, and it is the leading cause of vision loss in people over 55.

In order to treat cataracts and restore vision, the clouded lens must be replaced. Among the safest and most common of eye procedures, cataract surgery is performed over 3 million times each year in the US.

In traditional cataract surgery, the clouded lens is first removed from the eye. A clear intraocular lens (IOL) is then inserted in the eye, restoring function. While this basic procedure removes the main cause of vision loss for the sufferer, most patients after this surgery still require the use of prescription lenses.

The ORA (Optiwave Refraction Analysis) system allows doctors to go beyond simply restoring basic sight to those with cataracts. ORA allows doctors to increase the outcomes for cataract patients through utilizing advanced lens removal technologies. Replacing clouded lenses with premium IOLS allows surgeons to correct presbyopia and astigmatism. Patients who have benefited from ORA often are able to enjoy the clear, crisp vision they enjoyed when younger.

ORA is a revolutionary diagnostic device that allows your doctor to better meet your vision needs. By enabling your healthcare provider to select the ideal IOR and place it precisely for optimal performance, your vision can not only be restored, but improved.

Dr. Silverman and the OCLI team now offer the advantages of the ORA system to their patients. No matter what premium cataract procedure you choose, the ORA system can support an enhanced vision outcome. ORA helps you see better and get back to doing the things that matter.
