ORA™ Technology

ORA Wavefront Cataract Surgery Technology

Refractive Cataract Surgery Technology That Can Help Affect Your Surgical Outcome.

Mississippi Vision Correction Center has always had a commitment to the best patient care utilizing the latest technology. This is why we are excited to bring the ORA™ refractive analysis technology for a better, overall cataract surgery experience. This technology enables our patients to see better after cataract surgery by enabling our eye doctors to create customized treatment plans.

“The ORA system provides real-time measurements that assist our cataract surgeons in providing a more overall accurate procedure.”

What is ORA™ Technology?

Our Mississippi cataract surgeons now have the on-demand ability to measure outcomes, correct astigmatism and verify lens implant calculations in real time during the actual cataract surgery. By paying attention to these calculations we can help reduce or eliminate the need for glasses to see in the distance after surgery. Many cataract surgeons feel that this is one of the most dramatic breakthroughs in cataract care over the past decades. Brannon Aden, MD will be happy to discuss the potential benefits that this technology can provide patients.

How does it work?

The ORA™ system assesses your eye during cataract surgery very similar to how a GPS system tracks progress on a road. The ORA™ system is attached to the surgical microscope and utilizes intraoperative wavefront aberrometry to measure the refractive power of the eye once the cataract is removed. The on-demand power calculation is then used.

An astounding 90% of the lenses selected by the ORA™ System are within a half diopter of their intended target. What this means is that when our surgeons use this system for cataract removal it makes the IOL selection as accurate as possible.

The Benefits of the ORA™ system

There are many important benefits to having the ORA System™ included as part of your vision correction procedure. These include:

  • The ORA™ System may help your surgeon achieve better results and provide you an improved quality of vision.
  • The ORA™ System gives your surgeon an added level of confirmation for an optimal outcome.
  • If you have astigmatism, the ORA System™ may improve the accuracy of your correction to help reduce the chance you’ll need to wear eyeglasses after your procedure.
  • The ORA system reduces the chances of error in lens implant selection.

The revolutionary ORA™ System with VerifEye is a cutting edge technology by Alcon® that allows our cataract surgeons to take a picture of the eye at the time of surgery to verify that the nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism (eyeglass prescription) was correct and that the exact correct powered Intraocular lens (IOL) was selected. The ORA System™ is also used when doing Limbal Relaxing Incisions (LRI) or placing Toric (astigmatism correcting) lenses. It is also used in post-refractive patients (patients that have previously undergone LASIK or RK) distortion.
