The cataract surgeons of Medical Eye Care Associates are pleased to offer the Alcon ORA System™ technology, one of the most substantial advances in cataract surgery technology in recent years. ORA stands for Optiwave Refractive Analysis, and this sophisticated device provides our surgical team with real-time measurements of a patient’s eye during their cataract procedure. This technology additionally helps to verify that nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism is appropriately corrected during cataract surgery.
At Medical Eye Care Associates, we strive to provide visual outcomes to greatly reduce dependence on prescription eyewear after surgery. Based on the measurements provided by the ORA System, we are able to optimize the cataract procedure in real time and make decisions to ensure enhanced surgical outcomes.

Cataracts are extremely common, and cataract surgery has proven to be the only effective way to remove a cataract from the eye. As they develop, cataracts can greatly reduce the quality of life by impairing the ability to see and perform daily activities. An individual is typically a good candidate for the procedure when the development of cataracts has reached this point, and they have discussed the procedure with a qualified professional.
Cataract surgery can help patients to regain their quality of life and take back their vision. Dr. Violin and Dr. Moreira are committed to providing patients of Medical Eye Care Associates with the best technology and quality of care available for their vision care needs.
