If you want to be able to see raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens with clearer vision, then you may want to consider the raindrop inlay procedure from Dr. David Aizuss. As one of the most common vision problems that patients over the age of 50 experience, presbyopia causes your lenses to lose elasticity which makes it more difficult to see things close up. Luckily, with the help of raindrop inlays, Dr. David Aizuss can correct your vision in virtually no time. Sound too good to be true? Read on to learn more.
What Is the Raindrop Inlay?
The Raindrop Inlay is a thin, microscopic, transparent disc that will be surgically implanted below the surface of the eye. Made up of nearly 80% water, the Raindrop Inlay works to reshape the cornea which improves your eye’s natural ability to focus on objects up close. And, because it is made primarily of water, it will be easier for your eyes to adjust to the implant.
What Are Results Like?
If you are sick and tired of always having to take your reading glasses on and off and on and off— losing them in process half the time— then Raindrop Inlays may be the right procedure for you. By eliminating your need to wear reading glasses, you can expect to be able to see images up close without any assistance. Let’s just say that Raindrop Inlays will bring a whole new meaning to what it’s like to see clearly and without hindrance.
What Is the Procedure Like?
One of the best things about Raindrop Inlays is that the procedure is fast and easy. Lasting about 10 minutes per eye on average, you shouldn’t have to miss any work to get this surgery done. By making a small corneal incision on your eyes, Dr. David Aizuss will then place the implant just below the surface of the eye. Once it has been placed, your eye will naturally heal around it— meaning that there’s no need for stitches.
