Did you know that you are eligible for a cataract surgery after your LASIK surgery? Not only that, you are eligible for any kind of refractive surgery that involves reshaping the cornea to improve vision. The only thing that you need here is to provide your eye surgeon with precise information about your eyes from before and after your laser eye surgery.
How is it possible for people like you to provide exact lens information as required for cataract surgery? It is not possible, unless the surgeon carries out additional calculations to identify the precise lens power. But it doesn’t end at that. The surgeon also needs an accurate record of your prescription, before and after Lasik, and exact measurements of the curvature of your cornea before laser eye surgery and more such details.
An experienced cataract surgeon from a reputable eye care institute, like Sugarland Eye & Laser Center in Houston, will have to run all the necessary tests to get the accurate power of the artificial lens that will finally be placed in your eyes. In other words, cataracts require individualized personal determinations by an experienced surgeon to give you the patient the best care.
The Role of ORA
The process for lens implantation was a good procedure to begin with. However, to take cataract surgery to a new level of success, ORA with Verifeye+ technology was introduced. The surgeons can now remove all ambiguity and receive real time measurements that can help them give you the most accurate lens placement. It is these simple, refined adjustments that make all the difference to the quality of your vision.
Personalizing Lasik with ORA
The wavefront eye-mapping technique used in ORA with Verifeye+ is the same technology that makes Lasik such an accurate procedure. With the help of ORA, your surgeons are able to determine your eye’s unique characteristics during the cataract surgery and that optimizes the results significantly.
ORA making LASIK better
When you undergo Lasik surgery, the surgeon alters the shape of your cornea which makes it difficult to calculate the exact power of your lens implant that is required for cataract surgery. This is the same challenge that the surgeons faced when they are dealing with patients suffering from high myopia or high hyperopia.
The ORA Intraoperative Aberrometry system helps the surgeon in getting accurate measurements, real time, in the operating room, in the middle of procedure. The lens power that the ORA system selects documents as highly accurate. Thanks to this technology, the patient no longer needs distance glasses after the surgery.
Over the years, people looking for a cataract surgery after Lasik have increased significantly. Most people who come to ORA for post-Lasik treatment are the ones who are seeking a permanent solution to their vision issues. These patients have already invested greatly in quality of their vision and with the help of procedures like intraoperative aberrometry. Qualified surgeons are able to reach reasonable expectations set by their patients related to quality of their vision. Patients that have had prior Lasik procedures can gain increased accuracy of vision and reduce the need for eyeglasses after the procedure.
