CATALYS® femtosecond laser
This ultrafast laser is the preferred method for removing cataracts. The CATALYS uses an image guidance system to map out the surface of your eye and identify safety zones. Using this information, your surgeon creates a customized treatment for your specific needs.
ORA™ optiwave refractive analysis
The ORA system is essential for precise measurement of the strength and placement of your intraocular lens (IOL) during cataract surgery. Before ORA, patients had to wait weeks to determine whether their surgical results were accurate.

The Centurion Vision System offers the latest technology in phacoemulsification, which is the most common type of cataract surgery. The Centurion system enhances surgical control and efficiency, leading to a smoother procedure and an improved outcome.
