Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery

What happens during cataract surgery?

During cataract surgery, the cataract-clouded lens is removed and an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) is implanted in its place. Choosing the correct IOL focusing power is essential to great visual results. That is why our team uses ORA with VerifEye+, the first laser technology of its kind and the tool of choice for many of the nation’s leading cataract surgeons. ORA simplifies the IOL power selection process, enhancing precision and contributing to a more customizable procedure and better outcomes than ever before.

How does laser technology customize your cataract surgery?

In the past, cataract surgeons selected IOL power based only on eye measurements gathered prior to surgery. This traditional method is effective, but makes it difficult to predict how effective the cataract surgery will be.

ORA laser technology allows our surgeons to gather and monitor your measurements DURING the procedure. These real-time measurements allow the surgeon to make any necessary adjustments or refinements to your replacement lens power—or any additional corrections—right then instead of weeks later.

"The laser-assisted cataract surgery technology in which Mattax Neu Prater Eye Center has invested is the only one shown in peer-reviewed journals to improve the accuracy and outcome of cataract surgery. Our investment in this technology demonstrates our commitment to providing the best possible care for our patients."
