How common are cataracts? 
Cataracts are very common. Its estimated that at least 50% of Americans have cataracts by age 80

How does the CataLāze™ Refractive Suite work?
allows your surgeon to analyze your vision and tailor your treatment during the procedure. And with ORA, measurements are taken after the clouded cataract is removed, when the surgeon has a clear view of your eye. Verion provides landmark based image guidance to track eye movements and to provide a reference for all incisions and lens positioning. The LenSx® Laser makes blade free, precise incisions to the cornea and lens capsule. The LenSx® Laser then breaks up the cataract at faster speeds than traditional methods, keeping inflammation to a minimum.

How will the CataLāze™ Refractive Suite enhance my premium cataract procedure?
The new ORA
and Verion technologies revolutionize cataract surgery by allowing your surgeon to analyze your eye during your premium cataract procedure. By providing detailed measurements of your eye, this system helps your surgeon tailor treatment to your individual needs and provide more accurate and predictable refractive outcomes. The precise incisions made by the LenSx
® Laser minimizes risk of post-operative inflammation.

Does CataLāze™ track my eye movements during surgery?
Yes! The
Verion™System allows the surgeon to track subtle eye movements throughout the cataract surgery using previously obtained images of your iris.  This allows for proper incision location and ideal lens implant positioning. 

How effective is CataLāze™ with ORA, LenSx® Laser, and Verion guided cataract surgery?
Compared to traditional cataract procedures, ORA
® Laser, and Verion guided cataract surgery is proven to significantly improve your visual outcome.

Will I feel anything while the ORA System measurements are being taken?
Anesthetic drops are used to numb your eye in order to ensure you are comfortable throughout your cataract procedure. The laser does not touch your eye at all, and all measurements are easily taken while you focus on a red flashing light.

Is ORA, LenSx® Laser, and Verion guided cataract surgery safe?
Cataract surgery is one of the safest surgical procedures available, with 3 million surgeries performed in the United States alone each year.
¹ And by adding the CataLāze™ option to your premium cataract procedure, youll have the security of knowing you can receive the best possible outcome.

Does laser-guided cataract surgery take longer than regular cataract surgery?
The CataLāze™ option adds a small amount of additional time to your procedure, but the extra time is well worth it when considering the enhanced visual outcome it can provide you.

Will CataLāze™ surgery cost more?
and Verion Systems with the LenSx® Laser are part of a premium cataract surgery offering, which incorporates a premium replacement lens. While it is slightly more expensive than standard cataract surgery, the use of all these advanced technologies can help result in a better outcome and ensure you have great vision for life.
