"Intraoperative aberrometry…captures the entire eye, the entire optical system together, [and] provides me a great level of accuracy and intraoperative decision-making power. I wouldn’t dream of doing a post-refractive case without [it], and that’s why we have [a unit] in every single one of our operating rooms."

"I had a very demanding patient who did not want to wear glasses for distance, so I was planning for a 9.5 monofocal lens. ...The ORA SYSTEM® told me I needed a moderately high 10.5 astigmatism lens. ...I gulped, placed the moderately high astigmatism lens in, and the next day, I was rewarded with a 20/20 uncorrected, ecstatic patient."
"On a weekly basis, I have a case or two that give me a 'wow' factor...prior to the ORA SYSTEM®, I would not have dared to do [certain] patients."
"I just recently had cataract surgery myself. One of my partners...used the ORA SYSTEM®... and I'm just thrilled with the outcome."
"The ORA SYSTEM® suggested something to me in terms of surgical guidance or lens choice, that was really different than what I had planned preoperatively, and the difference was significant."
"Patients now are becoming much more demanding of a refractive outcome...the only consistent way of doing that is to have a live wavefront device that is very accurate, and more accurate than any of the formulas that are out there at this point."
"We placed [the lens] after doing multiple readings... it was the right power, and we saved that patient from having two lenses in her eye."
