In addition, with CustomVue there is no need to dilate the pupils, resulting in a faster, more comfortable treatment. Whether you have myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism, CustomVue can provide you with your personal best vision, greatly reducing your reliance on corrective eyewear.

Stratus OCT™ – Comprehensive glaucoma and retinal imaging and analysis

This state-of-the-art diagnostic technology allows our doctors to perform a detailed cross-sectional examination of the various layers of the retina and optic nerve without the need for any contact with the eye.

Stratus OCT™The Stratus OCT system is like an ultrasound that scans the retina for successful detection and diagnosis of retinal diseases, including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, edema and other vision-threatening conditions. In fact, the Stratus OCT is the most powerful tool used today in the early diagnosis of glaucoma. This is extremely important for our patients who often present no symptoms of the disease until irreversible damage has occurred.

The high-definition images obtained through the Stratus OCT enhance our doctors’ confidence in obtaining the correct diagnosis and level of damage so that an immediate and effective treatment plan can be developed.

WaveTec ORange Aberrometer

WaveTecThe ORange aberrometer manufactured by WaveTec Vision is the first-ever, real-time surgical device that allows our physicians to take refraction measurements during the actual cataract surgery. The device is mounted directly below the operating microscope and measurements are taken throughout the operation, ensuring maximum precision and intraocular lens implant (IOL) placement accuracy. This technology also provides instant refraction readings during the creation limbal relaxing incision, thereby improving astigmatism treatment and visual results after surgery. ORange WaveTec technology dramatically enhances the outcome of cataract surgery.

LenSX Laser for Laser Cataract Surgery

The highly sophisticated LenSX laser technology has revolutionized cataract surgery by providing increased surgical accuracy and allowing OCC cataract eye surgeons to further enhance the safety and precision of an already advanced procedure.

LenSX laser creates perfect incisions during cataract surgery and liquefies the crystalline lens, previously performed with an ultrasonic handpiece. This one-of-a-kind laser is also used to simultaneously treat astigmatism by creating limbal relaxing incisions in the eye.
