Once the cataract clouded lens is removed, an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) must replace it. Choosing the correct IOL focusing power is essential to great visual results. WaveTec ORA System® with VerifEye®, the first technology of its kind, is the tool of choice for many of the nation’s leading cataract surgeons. It not only simplifies the IOL power selection process, it enhances precision. This contributes to a more customizable cataract surgery and even better outcomes than ever before.
Before implementing the WaveTec system, IOL power selection was based only on eye measurements gathered PRIOR to surgery. This traditional method is effective, but makes it difficult to gage the effectiveness of a patient’s cataract surgery or lens power selection until weeks after their procedure.
With the WaveTec system, our surgeons use an IEC Class 1 Laser 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."
