It relies on amazingly accurate measurements, the skilled yet gentle hand of an experienced cataract surgeon, new and exciting short-acting anesthetics, and wavefront designed high-definition lens implants. The result is QuickVision Cataract Surgery -the fusion of cataract and refractive surgery.
To begin the cataract surgery procedure, your eye will be treated with an anesthetic so that you will feel little, if any, discomfort. A tiny incision will be made and a microscopic instrument will be passed through it. Using ultrasound from the tip of the microscopic instrument, we will be able to gently break the cataract into pieces small enough to be washed away, drawn through the instrument and removed from the eye.
After the procedure, you will rest for a short time at the surgery center before going home. Usually we will arrange a visit to examine your eye within 24 hours after of your procedure. We will prescribe some eye drops for you to use the days following and ask you to wear a protective shield, mainly at night to help you remember not to rub your eye. Although each patient heals a slight bit differently, most patients see well enough to return to their routine activities within a day or so after their cataract surgery.
This technique is called “phacoemulsification” and is the most advanced method of cataract surgery and crystalline lens removal available. Once your cataract has been removed, a new permanent Intraocular Lens Implant can now replace it. The new lens is readily inserted and placed in position through the same tiny incision at the outer edge of the cornea through which the cataract was removed.
Before, a surgeon needed to wait weeks after performing surgery to determine your vision results. Thanks to ORA, this is no longer the case. Now, your surgeon can take measurements of your eye during the procedure. ORA measurements are taken after the clouded cataract is removed, when the surgeon has a clear view, allowing him to tailor the procedure to your individual eye and refine your visual outcome. No matter what premium cataract procedure you and your surgeon decide upon, you can feel confident that by adding the ORA System™, you will receive the best possible results.
ORA System™ is a cutting edge technology by Wavetec® that allows the doctors of Kutryb Eye Institute to take a picture of the eye at the time of surgery to verify that the nearsightedness, farsightedness or the astigmatism was corrected, and that the exact correct powered Intraocular lens (IOL) was selected. Prior to the ORA System™, 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.
Some of the many benefits to having ORA System™ included as part of your cataract procedure:
The ORA System™ works by directing a beam of low intensity laser light into the eye during the surgical procedure. The laser light reflects off the back of your eye, and sensors in the ORA System™ device analyze the reflected wave of light exiting your eye. This real-time analysis measures all of the eye’s unique optical characteristics, and gives your cataract surgeon an accurate measurement of your eye’s focusing capabilities.
The doctors at the Kutryb Eye Institute are committed to providing the highest quality of vision possible to their patients. Using the ORA System™ helps them achieve this goal, because for the first time ever, the surgeon is able to correct the eye prescription in “real time” so the patient may not need any glasses after surgery.
