Dr. Rozenbaum Performs ORA

Ilya Rozenbaum, MD is pleased to announce that a new cataract surgery measurement tool called ORA (Optiwave Refractive Analysis) is now available to patients of MEA. The ORA is performed by the surgeon during cataract surgery to ensure the accuracy of proper intraocular lens selection.

The ORA is a real breakthrough that increases the precision of correcting vision with cataract surgery.

Especially for patients with astigmatism and those who have had prior refractive surgery such as LASIK or PRK, or those who are having a multifocal or accommodative lens implanted, ORA can improve the accuracy to help reduce the need of glasses after cataract surgery.

Currently the ORA system is only available to use at the Wills ASC in Warminster, PA.

March is Workplace Eye Wellness Awareness Month
Each year, 300,000 Americans visit the emergency room to treat a workplace eye injury. During Workplace Eye Wellness Month in March, Matossian Eye Associates is joining the American Academy of Ophthalmology in reminding employers and workers in these fields about the importance of wearing proper eye protection.

The American Academy of Ophthalmology's public education program, EyeSmart®, provides the following tips to avoid eye injuries at work:

  • Wear protective eyewear whenever there is a chance of eye injury such as anywhere there may be flying debris, falling objects, chemicals and intense light and heat. This is particularly true of workers involved in welding. Among welders, their assistants, and nearby workers, UV radiation burns (welder's flash) routinely damage workers' eyes and surrounding tissue.
  • Make sure your eye protection is American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-approved, OSHA compliant, and is appropriate for the hazards in your workplace. If you are working in an area that has particles, flying objects, or dust, you must at least wear safety glasses with side protection (side shields). If you are working with chemicals, you should wear goggles. If you are working near hazardous radiation (welding, lasers or fiber optics) you must use special-purpose safety glasses, goggles, face shields or helmets designed for that task.

In case of an eye injury, follow these EyeSmart® tips for Care and Treatment Recommendations for Eye Injury to learn the do's and don'ts of eye injury first aid:
  • If your eye has been cut or punctured:
    • DO NOT remove the object stuck in eye, rinse with water, rub or apply pressure to eye. Avoid giving aspirin, ibuprofen, or other non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs. These drugs thin the blood and may increase bleeding.
    • DO gently place a shield over the eye. The bottom of a paper cup taped to the bones surrounding the eye can serve as a shield until you get medical attention. After you have finished protecting the eye, see a physician immediately.
  • In case of a chemical burn to the eye:
    • DO immediately flush the eye with plenty of clean water, and seek emergency medical treatment right away.
  • To treat a blow to the eye:
    • DO NOT apply any pressure.
    • DO gently apply a small cold compress to reduce pain and swelling. If a black eye, pain, or visual disturbance occurs even after a light blow, immediately contact an ophthalmologist or go to the closest emergency room. Remember that even a light blow can cause a significant eye injury.
  • To treat sand or small debris in the eye:
    • DO NOT rub the eye.
    • DO use eyewash to flush the eye out. If the debris doesn't come out, lightly bandage the eye and see an ophthalmologist or visit the nearest emergency room.
