When Cataract surgery is performed, a lens implant is placed in the eye. The lens power has a prescription and the prescription should match the prescription of your eye or glasses will be required. There are several ways to measure Lens power. None of the techniques is 100% accurate, but the ORA SmartVision system with VerifEye+ allows your surgeon to approximate LASIK like results after Cataract surgery.
The older techniques used to measure lens power do so with the cataract still in place. ORA SmartVision is different because it is done in the operating room with the cataract out resulting in better accuracy.
The ORA SmartVision will benefit almost every patient. But, the information it provides is most important in the following patients who have a high risk of needing glasses after cataract surgery:
Most patients who had Cataract surgery prior to the 1970’s did not have a lens implant placed in their eyes and were guaranteed extremely thick “coke bottle” glasses after surgery. In the 1980, lens implants started to get popular, but the technology for measuring lens power was not ideal and thus most patients still required glasses.
In the early 2000’s, as LASIK became more common, Cataract surgeons started wanting to provide Cataract surgery patients visual results similar to LASIK. Thus, a new field of Refractive Cataract surgery was born. The doctors at LaserCare Eye Center are refractive cataract surgeons. Early attempts were placed first at improving lens implant technology. This brought us astigmatism correcting lens implants and multifocal lens implants that allow vision far and near.
More recently, the technology has improved. The biggest recent advance has been ORA Intraoperative aberrometry or as we like to call it “ORA SmartVision”.
