Dr. Robert Cionni
and the surgeons at The Eye Institute of Utah
now utilize the ORA System® with the new VerifEye™ upgrade to achieve more accurate results for improved vision for cataract patients.
Salt Lake City, UT - The Eye Institute of Utah
has once again upgraded its cataract surgery technology in a way the practice says can further ensure patients achieve improved vision after the procedure.
With VerifEye™ technology
added to the ORA System®, Dr. Robert Cionni
fellow Salt Lake City eye surgeons, including Drs.
Before ORA with VerifEye™
, Dr. Cionni
says eye surgeons had to select the IOL's lens prescription based on measurements taken prior to cataract removal.
says this sometimes made it difficult to precisely predict what the post-operative prescription might be, and thus led to corrections or enhancements that would need to be made after the initial cataract surgery.
Using ORA with VerifEye™
, Dr. Cionni
says ophthalmologists at the Salt Lake City eye surgery practice can now, for the first time, take vision measurements during surgery, enabling them to more accurately adjust and confirm the prescription in order to reduce the chances that the patient will need enhancements after their procedure.
Dr. Cionni, Medical Director of The Eye Institute of Utah, says the VerifEye™ upgrade provides continuous, real-time monitoring; ultimately improving the original Optiwave Refractive Analysis (ORA) System and helping surgeons tailor and refine results even further.
"I've always had great results with the ORA System®, and with the addition of VerifEye™
we're now seeing LASIK-like results in cataract surgery.
Of the VerifEye™
cases we've done to-date, 92 percent of patients were within .50 diopters of the intended target, which is truly remarkable.
says this new measurement tool, combined with LenSx® laser cataract surgery and advanced IOL's, can further increase the chances of a reduced reliance on eyeglasses or contacts after treatment.
Dr. Cionni notes that one of VerifEye™'s
key benefits is its ability to continually monitor eye stability, since the eye must be steady in order for more precise measurements to be taken.
The refractive feedback it displays throughout the procedure alerts surgeons when the eye is steady and ready to be measured, which can result in more accurate readings.
increased image processing speed represents another upgrade over the original ORA System®.
With double the processing power, Dr. Cionni
provides faster, more accurate measurements, which in turn often yields more refined visual outcomes for The Eye Institute of Utah's
custom cataract surgery patients.
Today, Dr. Robert Cionni
and the team of ophthalmologists at The Eye Institute of Utah
offer an array of vision care options, including cataract surgery, custom lens-implant surgery with advanced technology intraocular lenses, Lipiflow dry eye treatments, LASIK
, advanced glaucoma surgery, corneal transplantation, and other treatments designed to improve a variety of eye conditions and diseases.
"Celebrating the mothers in our communities is extremely important to us," says Salt Lake City eye surgeon Robert Cionni, MD, Medical Director of The Eye Institute of Utah.
Many patients visit the refractive specialists at The Eye Institute of Utah
, Dr. Darcy Wolsey and Dr. Robert Cionni
, with questions regarding the advantages of LASIK surgery versus Visian ICL (Implantable Contact Lens) procedures.
Dr. Robert Cionni, Medical Director of The Eye Institute of Utah and a world renowned cataract and refractive specialist, was recently featured as a meeting reporter for the ASCRS 2013 Winter Update.
, or the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery
, conducts meetings throughout the year where thousands of ophthalmologists and other ophthalmic professionals attend to help advance and learn about anterior segment surgery.
