Eye Consultants of Texas advances revolutionary Orange® cataract surgery technology
We introduced ORange® technology to Dallas/Fort Worth in August 2011. It’s the world’s first technology that can assess cataract surgery results in real time, during the procedure. And Eye Consultants of Texas founder Phillips Kirk Labor, MD, was the first Dallas/Fort Worth eye surgeon to use it.
WaveTec Vision, inventor of ORange®, has introduced a more advanced version now called ORA System™. Once again, Eye Consultants of Texas is the first DFW practice to implement this new advancement.
As with ORange, ORA uses the world’s first Intraoperative Wavefront Aberrometer, or diagnostic device, that provides real-time measurements of the eye during cataract surgery. Previously, any surgeon had to wait sometimes weeks until after surgery to determine accuracy. Dr. Labor can instantly analyze every imperfection caused by the cataract, make adjustments on the spot, and customize the procedure to each patient’s eye. The new ORA System enhances precision and consistency to further improve post-surgery vision quality. In addition, ORA is designed to further improve artificial lens implantation accuracy (a normal part of the cataract procedure), regardless of the type of lens selected.
“The ability to accurately measure results at any point during the procedure is a true breakthrough,” Dr. Labor said. “The new ORA System advances this in ways that will continue to transform cataract surgery, and further improve post-surgery vision quality.”
Since it was introduced, Eye Consultants of Texas has grown to become one of the top providers of this technology in the U.S. Cataracts is a clouding of the eye’s lens most people experience after age 55, and more commonly in their 60’s or 70’s.
