The Raindrop Inlay for Presbyopia
The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay, like the KAMRA Inlay also described on our website, has been FDA approved for Presbyopia, or difficulty with near vision.
Presbyopia is the most common eye condition. The symptoms include difficulty seeing near objects, such as newspapers and your cell phone, without blurriness, while your long distance vision remains fine.
If you’re 41-65 years old and reliant on bifocals or reading glasses, the Raindrop is another option to consider among several available at the Yaldo Eye Center to deal with Presbyopia.
The Raindrop Inlay (ReVision Optics) is the first device to change the shape of the cornea to correct vision.
In technical terms, The Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay is a microscopic hydrogel inlay. Its optical characteristics are almost identical to the human cornea. The hydrogel material is comprised of nearly 80% water, ensuring effective nutrient diffusion and transfer through the cornea. It is easily placed within the cornea under a LASIK-style flap. When in position, the inlay changes the curvature of the cornea so the front of the eye acts much like a multifocal contact lens.
In other words, it works by re-shaping the surface of the eye to improve reading vision. Patients can return to work the next day as it is a completely walk in and walk out procedure
