As we age, our eyes start to lose the ability to focus on up-close objects, resulting in the need to wear reading glasses. 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.
The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is a transparent inlay 2mm in size that is placed in one eye, just beneath the surface during a 10-minute outpatient surgical procedure. The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is 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 patients near vision reducing the need for reading glasses.
Anyone who just needs reading glasses to complete their daily tasks, such as seeing fine print, reading text on the phone, or working on the computer could be a candidate for the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay.
