It All Starts with Oraya:

Introducing a New Option for Wet AMD


Radiotherapy has come of age. While long used for the treatment of cancer, recent improvements introduced by Oraya have brought radiation to the forefront of AMD therapy. CNV appears to be a multi-component disease involving neovascular growth, vascular leakage, matrix deposition, remodeling, and inflammation. Radiation has the ability to inhibit rapidly proliferating vascular tissue and diminish new blood vessel growth. It can also reduce inflammation and minimize scar formation. Intended as a one-time treatment, Oraya Therapy is non-invasive, quick and easily tolerated.

With Oraya Therapy, we’re raising the bar and lowering the burden.

The Oraya Therapy provides the following advantages:

Innovative Technology
Oraya Therapy raises the bar in the treatment of wet AMD by using state-of-the- art technology that advances radiotherapy to new levels of control and precision targeting. The Oraya system uses advanced X-ray tube positioning to ensure precise targeting and control. The patient’s eye is secured by the proprietary I-Guide™ Eye Stabilization Device that immobilizes the globe to assure accurate treatment. This stereotactic approach results in precise delivery of therapy to the macula while protecting surrounding tissue from radiation exposure.

Ease of Use and Patient Comfort
Delivered non-invasively in an outpatient setting, Oraya Therapy is designed to ease the burden of wet AMD treatment for both the patient and the physician by reducing the number of anti-VEGF injections. The procedure requires only a topical anesthetic, and patients are able to leave within 15 to 20 minutes. The actual treatment time is approximately four minutes.
