SMART Cataract Surgery

Font Size

SMART Cataract Surgery is a procedure designed to combine the latest and most precise equipment in cataract surgery- the LenSx Femtosecond Laser with the most accurate technology in intraocular lens selection- the Optiwave Refractive Analysis (ORA)- to give you the most customized vision correction available.

SMART Cataract Surgery with LenSx® Laser and ORA Technology

New Eyes is one of the first practices in the nation able to offer the most incredibly accurate and precise cataract surgery without the need for a surgical blade. Using SMART Cataract Surgery technology, New Eyes cataract surgeons Helga F. Pizio, MD and Ksenia Stafeeva, MD combine the LenSx® Femtosecond Laser system with the Optiwave Refractive Analysis (ORA) to more precisely remove cataracts and more accurately predict the power of the intraocular lens implant. We are very excited and proud to bring to Las Vegas the combination of the most advanced technology in laser cataract surgery and lens implant accuracy which will result in optimal vision correction for distance, near, or both.

Benefits of Laser Cataract Surgery

The LenSx® Femtosecond Laser is an all laser technique designed to remove cataracts more safely and precisely than by conventional means. With laser cataract surgery, a small beam of laser energy makes it possible for New Eyes surgeons to remove cataracts without the need for a surgical blade. This laser procedure provides many benefits to cataract patients, including:

Cataract Surgery: Laser

The Laser Cataract Surgery Procedure

The removal of cataracts with the LenSx® Femtosecond Laser is performed by New Eyes surgeons only at Alta Rose Surgery Center. The LenSx Laser uses the sophisticated technology called OCT (Ocular Coherence Tomography) to provide our New Eyes surgeon with an incredibly precise and detailed image of the inside of your eye. Then, your surgeon customizes the treatment plan for your eye and guides the LenSx laser to create small incisions on the cornea, incision of the anterior covering of the cataract, and then fragment the cataract. This makes it possible for our surgeon to remove the cataract more easily and safely and correct for astigmatism. Once the LenSx Laser has completed the incisions, the cataract is removed and an intraocular implant is placed in the eye for vision correction. Your surgeon will discuss which intraocular lens is the best choice for you to correct for distance vision, near vision, or both.

And now for the first time in Las Vegas, LenSx® Femtosecond Laser is performed in conjunction with Optiwave Refractive Analysis (ORA) technology to give patients the most accurate and precise procedure we branded SMART Cataract Surgery.

SMART Cataract Surgery with Optiwave Refractive Analysis – ORA

SMART Cataract Surgery is a procedure designed to combine the latest and most precise equipment in cataract surgery- the LenSx Femtosecond Laser with the most accurate technology in intraocular lens selection- the Optiwave Refractive Analysis (ORA)- to give you the most customized vision correction available.

Traditional techniques are limited in their ability to exactly measure your eye for an intraocular lens (IOL) implant. The new technology called Optiwave Refractive Analysis (ORA) was developed to reduce this margin of error in making the best selection of an intraocular lens for your eye. The ORA is a laser attached to the operating microscope and is used by your surgeon to more accurately measure your eye during the surgery. Your surgeon selects the best IOL for your eye based on these measurements and can then “TEST DRIVE” the IOL by repeating the measurements before leaving the operating room.

ORA is a breakthrough technology for lens selection especially for patients with difficult problems such as astigmatism, mature advanced cataracts, and patients who have had previous LASIK, PRK, or RK.

Presbyopia Treatment with LenSx® Femtosecond Laser Surgery and ORA

With the precision of the LenSx® Femtosecond Laser, accuracy of the ORA measurements, and our highest technology multifocal intraocular lenses, New Eyes can offer patients with presbyopia the most advanced treatment available to correct distance and near vision without glasses or contacts.

Presbyopia affects patients over the age of 40, causing a decreased ability to focus on objects at distance and near simultaneously. Presbyopia results in the need for reading glasses in most people. The LenSx® Femtosecond Laser and ORA combined with a multifocal intraocular lens can significantly reduce the need for wearing glasses or contact lenses.

Schedule an appointment with a New Eyes surgeon for your personalized evaluation to see if you are a candidate for SMART Cataract Surgery to eliminate your need for glasses or contacts.
