No More “Wait & See” Cataract Surgery in the Bay Area

San Leandro, California (EastBayDaily) — Dr. Chirag Patel of the Turner Eye Institute is the first in Bay Area to offer 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. Patel 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. Patel “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. Patel 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. Patel uses ORA measurements to guide the procedure and help ensure patients get the best possible vision.

ORA measurements are taken after the clouded cataract is removed, when Dr. Patel 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’ll 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. Patel “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.
