“Our goal is to provide patients with their personal best vision while offering the latest technology available.”
Charles H. Williamson, M.D.
Medical Director and CEO
When you have cataract surgery, we will remove your cloudy lens and replace it with a clear lens implant. This implant has a “prescription” customized to correct your vision. In order to accurately choose the correct lens for your eye, your surgeon will perform an ORA scan during surgery. ORA stands for Optiwave Refractive Analysis sometimes called “SMART VISION.”
The ORA scan is extremely important to be able to choose the correct lens implant for your eye. Whether you have nearsightedness, farsightedness and/or astigmatism, the ORA allows your surgeon to choose the best lens to correct your vision. ORA has been found to give us the best results with cataract surgery.
The benefits of the use of ORA include:
- Lens power confirmation and optimization
- Proper lens orientation
- Eliminate as many refractive errors as possible at the time of surgery
- Increased chance of being less dependent on glasses or contact lenses for distance vision
- Customized enhanced visual outcome
