NO MORE “WAIT & SEE” CATARACT SURGERY:
Dr. Dee Stephenson First in U.S. to Offer the ORA System® with VerifEye™ for LASIK-Like Cataract Surgery Results – ORA-Guided Cataract Surgery is a Truly Remarkable Advancement Now Available to Local Patients
VENICE, FLORIDA (July 9, 2013) – Dr. Dee Stephenson is the first physician in the U.S. to offer commercial use of a breakthrough cataract surgery technology that provides LASIK-like visual quality to area patients. The ORA System with VerifEye is a revolutionary new way to analyze the eye during premium cataract surgery. Using ORA allows Dr. Stephenson to tailor treatment for each patient’s eye.
“We’re extremely pleased to offer the ORA System with VerifEye for cataract surgery, which takes the procedure to new heights,” said Dr. Stephenson. “VerifEye improves the accuracy of cataract surgery, and the result is a more precise, more refined visual outcome, and more satisfied cataract surgery patients who literally see the results themselves.”
ORA-guided cataract surgery enables Dr. Stephenson to measure the eye and refine visual outcomes during the procedure, rather than having to “wait and see” weeks or even months afterward, as with traditional cataract surgery. Dr. Stephenson uses ORA measurements to guide her decision making in the operating room and help ensure patients get the best possible vision.
ORA measurements are taken after the clouded cataract is removed, when Dr. Stephenson has a clear view of the eye. ORA-guided cataract surgery is compatible with all premium lens implants and technologies. Patients can feel confident they will receive the best possible result, no matter what premium cataract procedure they select.
“This advancement marks a real turning point in the field of cataract surgery,” said Dr. Stephenson. “The ORA System with VerifEye offers advanced guidance that results in increased confidence for me and optimized outcomes for my patients. It’s what we’ve been waiting for in our effort to help patients achieve better vision for life.”
Whether the patient has had LASIK or has astigmatism, an ORA-guided cataract procedure provides the security of knowing they can have the best possible outcome, and reduce the chance of needing an additional procedure.
