Cataract & Refractive Surgery Today, a major industry publication, recently asked Phillips Kirk Labor, MD to share his expertise about a revolutionary cataract surgery technology he introduced to Dallas/Fort Worth in 2011. The result was an article Dr. Labor authored, Updating Your Practice With Advanced Technology, with the subtitle, Intraoperative aberrometry is a worthwhile investment for the practice and provides added security for cataract patients. The article appeared nationwide in the October 2012 issue.
A prime example of intraopertive aberrometry he discusses is the ORA System. This is a “wavefront aberrometry device,” the first of its kind to measure cataract surgery results in real time – during the procedure. Previously called ORange, Dr. Labor was the first metro Dallas/Fort Worth eye surgeon to use this technology when it was introduced in 2011. When ORange changed to the further enhanced ORA System, Dr. Labor remained at the forefront as an early adopter of this newer, better technology. Today, he is one of the top ORA surgeons in the world.
“Cataract & Refractive Surgery Today is a trusted, highly regarded publication among leading surgeons all over the world. I was grateful when they contacted me, and didn’t hesitate to do it,” Dr. Labor said. “Although written for our industry, my main goal, however, was to share my experiences and successes related to how this benefits the patient first.”
