For decades, cataract surgeons were forced to remove cataracts through the conventional means of cutting into the eye with blades and instruments. Today, new technological advancements allow outstanding surgeons, such as those at Nevada Eye & Ear, to remove cataracts without the use of any blades. With a combination of Lensar laser assisted surgery, and the ORA system technology, cataract surgery has never before been so precise.
What is the ORA System?
The ORA system for cataract removal is an innovative and sophisticated device that can be used to produce real-time measurements of the eye of a patient. Such precise readings could not be possible with conventional instruments, but with ORA, the surgeon can easily take measurements at any point during the procedure to make the best decision in repairing the eye. Prior to the introduction of the ORA system, surgeons could not assess the quality of a patient's vision during the cataract removal procedure, and would generally have to wait until weeks following the surgery to determine the extent of the results. In simple terms, the ORA system assists the eye surgeon at the time of surgery by helping the surgeon make the best choices for intraocular lens power and astigmatism correction. and refine outcomes throughout the procedure, rather than having to simply work on a "wait and see" basis. This technology is particularly useful with Lensar procedures, as it allows for incredibly precise incisions and alterations throughout the laser cataract surgery, providing you with the best outcome possible.
Lensar with ORA
For a number of years, eye surgeons had to make incisions and remove cataracts using blades. Today however, Dr. Surjeet Singh of Nevada Eye & Ear and Medical Director at Stonecreek Surgery Center, can perform the intricate steps involved within the surgical process using the Lensar guided laser, with the help of ORA. The Lensar laser gives surgeons precision and control during difficult procedures. The software of ORA mixed with Lensar laser cataract surgery allows Dr. Singh to develop personalized procedures for each patient, before visualizing and performing the procedure on a step by step basis. The benefits of using Lensar and ORA in vision correction are extensive. For example: • The ORA system permits your surgeon to have an added level of confirmation for the best outcome. • The ORA system and Lensar laser surgery can help your surgeon achieve superior results, which means that you end up with a superior quality of vision overall. • The ORA and Lensar procedure can help to improve the accuracy of corrections for people with astigmatism, thereby reducing the chances that they will need glasses after the procedure. Dr. Singh's cataract patient shares how laser cataract surgery changes his life. Patient - Dudley Beatty "I came to Dr. Singh and staff at Nevada Eye and Ear and they took wonderful care of me. I now have 20/20 vision and it has meant a whole new world for me. I can’t tell you enough how great the gift of sight is. Dr. Singh should be operating on The Strip. The man is an absolute magician with the laser! Thank you Dr. Singh." See below for the video testimonial.
