The IntraLase Method is a 100% blade-free technique used to perform the critical first step in the LASIK procedure: creating the corneal flap. The creation of the corneal flap prepares the eye for the second step of the LASIK procedure where an excimer laser is used on the inner cornea to correct vision.

Ask Us A Question
Cataracts and You
In order to see clearly, your eye’s natural lens must remain clear to properly focus. Over time, your lens becomes cloudy. This clouding of the lens is called a cataract, and it’s the leading cause of vision loss in people over the age of 55.
How ORA Works
The ORA System™ utilizes intraoperative wavefront aberrometer, similar to the technology that has made LASIK a customized, precise procedure. A low-intensity beam of laser light is directed into the eye. The laser light reflects off the patient’s retina and sensors in the aberrometer measure optical characteristics in the reflected light.
What does that mean for the Surgeon and You?
It gives the surgeon an accurate, real-time measurement of the eye’s focusing capabilities at any time during surgery. That helps your surgeon choose the best intraocular lens power and astigmatism correction. Giving the patient the best possible results. It truly is revolutionary and the difference is clear.
Now, during the procedure, your surgeon can take measurements of your eye. ORA measurements are taken after the clouded cataract is removed, when the surgeon has a clear view, allowing him to tailor the procedure to your individual eye and refine your visual outcome.
