Raindrop Near Vision Inlay, A simple solution
The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is a simple solution to presbyopia. Presbyopia, better know as the loss of near vision, happens when your natural lens loses elasticity, making it difficult to change your focus to see objects up close. It affects most people in their 40s and early 50s. This innovative and unique procedure is an effective alternative to the hassle of readers. Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is a minimally invasive and long term solution to improve near vision without glasses.
About Raindrop Near Vision Inlay Technology
The Raindrop Inlay is a microscopic, transparent disc, which is implanted just beneath the surface of your eye. The inlay is made of approximately 80% water and works by reshaping the cornea, clear front part of your eye, to improve the ability to focus on near objects while minimizing the impact to distance vision.
What to Expect
Dr. Aizuss will determine if you are a candidate for the Raindrop procedure through a series of tests and measurements on your eyes.
Am I a candidate for Raindrop?
The following traits are indicators of strong candidates:
- Are between 40-65 years of age
- Wear reading glasses
- Experience blurry vision when reading or focusing on near objects
- Do not need corrective eyewear to see far away
In preparation for your procedure, you will be given prescription eye drops. The procedure only takes about 10 minutes and is performed with a laser similar to LASIK procedures. Recovery is usually quick, with many patients resuming normal activities the next day, and aftercare includes only prescription eye drops and follows up appointments. Patients see an improvement in vision within one week and vision continues to improve for several weeks, with the majority (>87%) of patients achieving 20/25 near vision or better.
