What Is ORA (Optiwave Refractive Analyzer)?
The ORA system is a new, advanced way to provide real time measurements of your eye during surgery. It works by directing a beam of low intensity laser light into the eye during the surgical procedure. The sensors in the ORA instrument analyze the reflected wave of light that comes off of the retina. With this information, Dr. Tantisara can evaluate the optical conditions during the procedure. This allows him to make real time decisions giving you the best visual outcome.
We are currently the only center in Maui that offers this to our patients.
Benefits of ORA
- With ORA we can optimize any cataract procedure, regardless of the lens that you select.
- The surgeon will receive an ORA analysis that will guide the correction of your eye to help ensure the best, most optimal outcome.
- With ORA we can greatly improve the accuracy of your astigmatism correction, which will reduce the chances of needing to wear glasses after the surgery.
