Preoperative Wavefront Analysis
Prior to any vision correction procedure, Dr. Jackson must have an accurate reading of any aberrations in your eye. An aberration is anything that may deviate from normal eyesight and could be responsible for you seeing halos around lights or fuzzy vision.
The Wavefront analysis that is performed at Jacksoneye will produce thousands of complex data points. This, along with measuring the degree of your nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, will allow us to tailor each vision correction procedure for each patient.
Dr. Jackson is one of a few surgeons in the nation to perform this analysis for all of his vision correction procedures. The accuracy of analyzing these data points allows Dr. Jackson to provide the best care and results possible.
Orbscan Corneal Topography
The Orbscan measures the overall corneal structure of your eye. This step includes measuring the thickness, surface power and the shape of your cornea. The technology used with the Orbscan can acquire over 8,000 data points in two seconds, providing a 3-D map of your cornea. It can also detect signs of specific diseases and/or abnormalities.
This knowledge about your cornea is essential to Dr. Jackson as he determines the best course of action for your vision correction procedure.
Zeiss Humphrey IOL Master
Once it is determined that cataract surgery is recommended, the next step is to determine which intraocular lenses (IOLs) are the best for you. Just like a prescription for your contact lenses, IOLs contain the correct calculation to provide you with optimal vision. Our skilled technicians use the Zeiss Humphrey IOL Master for highly accurate measurements and precise IOL power calculations.
Laser Guided Optiplus-ORA
OptiPlus which is referred nowadays as ORA is the latest breakthrough in modern technologies used by eye surgeons in their cataract removal treatments. Its main role is to provide quick and accurate eye analysis to the eye surgeon performing the surgery which was not possible during a traditional measurement.
How OptiPlus works?
OptiPlus uses an innovative device, the intraoperative wavefront aberrometer which provides accurate IOL analysis during a cataract eye surgery. Here, a low-intensity laser light is pointed to the targeted eye while the surgery is taking place. The device gives a real-time measurement of the patient’s optical features and provides the eye surgeon with the opportunity to arrive with a more precise measurement of the patient’s focusing capabilities.
With the development of this advanced technology, eye surgeons can now have instant access to a person’s visual quality, enabling him/her to determine the appropriate lens replacement needed to correct the patient’s refractive error right there, unlike the traditional method wherein the performing surgeon cannot get the accurate measurements during the procedure and will have to wait for weeks after the surgery to assess the outcome of the treatment.
Benefits of OptiPlus during a cataract surgery:
- On-demand analysis of a patient’s eye condition is achievable while the surgery is taking place.
- Higher percentage of optimum results is guaranteed.
- Whether you underwent a Lasik surgery or availed other corrective solutions for your refractive disorder, the OptiPlus technology can help any patient remove the need for eyeglasses after surgery or simply give a more precise visual outcome even if glasses are needed postoperatively.
