Despite the fact that all human eyes have the same basic anatomical structure, each eye is different in terms of size, depth, curvature of the cornea and other important features. Because of these unique individual differences in your eyes, as well as any previous treatments that may have been performed (like PRK or LASIK), cataract surgery must be tailored to you. We accomplish this by carefully measuring and mapping your eye prior to cataract surgery in order to achieve the goal of lower dependence on glasses.Prior to your surgery, various measurements are taken in order to select the appropriate IOL, or intraocular lens, power.
There can be a margin of error, however, when making the proper selection based on previous surgery and unknown physiological factors. As a result, we utilize a special surgical confirmation tool which help us to customize your vision even further during all custom cataract surgery procedures performed at North Georgia Eye Surgery Center. The ORA (Optiwave Refractive Analysis) intraoperative aberrometry system provides real-time analysis of your eye during surgery.
With the use of ORA with VerifEye™ during your Custom Cataract Surgery, we can ensure your procedure will be optimized; the analysis will provide your surgeon with information that helps confirm the proper correction for optimal visual outcomes. For patients with astigmatism, those who have had prior LASIK, PRK or RK, or those who are having a multifocal lens implanted, ORA with VerifEye™ can improve the accuracy to help reduce the need for glasses after your procedure.
