Alcon’s Optiwave Refractive Analysis (ORA) System® is one of the most substantial advances in cataract surgery technology in recent years. This revolutionary device corrects the eye prescription in real time during cataract surgery.
How Does ORA Work?
In the past, cataract surgery would be completed and then weeks would have to pass before the surgeon would know whether the results were correct. The ORA System allows the surgeon to have an entirely new level of precision in evaluating the patient’s vision, which is used to help optimize decision-making during cataract surgery. The ORA System works by using wavefront aberrometry data to assess the sphere, cylinder, and axis measurements of the eye.
