Speaker: System helps guide placement of toric IOLs
NEW ORLEANS — A speaker here said that the ORA System can measure the true total of astigmatic error in the eye in guiding toric IOL placement.
“What I saw is that my toric cases were really being accurately targeted, so I started doing torics on everybody, and since incorporating ORA, I’ve seen a dramatic improvement in my toric refractive result,” Tal Raviv, MD, said at the ORA System Symposium, sponsored by WaveTec Vision.
Raviv analyzed toric IOL results without and with the use of the ORA System; it was not used on 32 eyes and was used on 25 eyes. He said that 53.1% of eyes without ORA had a residual cylinder of 0.5 D or less and 88% of eyes with ORA had a residual cylinder of 0.5 D or less. Also, 82.4% of eyes without ORA had uncorrected visual acuity of 20/25 or better, and 94.7% of eyes with ORA had UCVA of 20/25 or better.
