The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay
Why do we need reading glasses as we age?
As we age, the need to hold objects further away to read clearly becomes necessary. This condition is presbyopia; when the natural lens of the eye loses the ability to focus. Everyone develops presbyopia at some point in their life, usually around the age of 40.
Traditionally, patients compensate for this vision loss by using reading glasses, or bifocal lenses. Dr. Schumer and Dr. Shah of ReVision are the first surgeons in Columbus to provide The Raindrop Solution for presbyopia.
The Raindrop is a transparent inlay that is placed in one eye, just beneath the surface during a 10 minute outpatient procedure. Made up of 80% water it is roughly the size of a pinhead. The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay gently creates a shape change of the cornea that improves a patients near vision reducing the need for reading glasses.
