Dean McGee Eye Institute Uses New Technologies to Enhance Precision of Cataract Surgery

OKLAHOMA CITY—Dean McGee Eye Institute (DMEI) surgeons are using a combination of new technologies to increase the accuracy and precision of cataract surgery. Computer-guided surgical lasers help dissolve the cloudy lens called a cataract and make incisions that allow for a level of precision never before obtained with cataract surgery.

Cataract surgery is recommended when the natural crystalline lens of the eye becomes opaque, usually due to age, causing diminished vision over time. During cataract surgery, the damaged lens is removed and replaced with a transparent synthetic lens to restore vision.

“The combination of the laser-driven surgery, refined lens implant measurements during the procedures, and premium replacement intraocular lenses is giving DMEI patients an enhanced surgical experience with a rapid recovery after surgery and remarkable improvement in their vision,” said Gregory L. Skuta, MD, DMEI President and CEO and Edward L. Gaylord Professor and Chair of the OU Department of Ophthalmology. “The computer-guided lasers make removal of the clouded cataract very precise, and the premium intraocular lens that is implanted can be better calibrated to the point that maximizes vision after surgery.”

The femtosecond laser is the latest in the combination of new technologies used by DMEI. The surgeon first anesthetizes the area and couples the device to the eye with gentle suction. The computer-guided device then scans the eye and sends detailed measurements to the laser, which automatically delivers a series of carefully calibrated pulses to create incisions on the outer surface of and inside the eye and to help dissolve the cataract.

“Once the cataract is removed, the ORA VerifEye+® wavefront technology system measures the eye for the new intraocular lens in the operating room to ensure the most accurate choice,” said David Jackson, MD, DMEI ophthalmologist, cataract and refractive surgeon. “Next, a premium synthetic replacement lens is individually fitted to the precise visual needs of each patient.”

The first signs of a cataract include a strong glare from lights and small light sources at night, along with reduced acuity at low light levels.
