What is Raindrop Near Vision Inlay?

What is Raindrop Near Vision Inlay?
Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is one of the most advanced procedures to address the loss of age related near vision or presbyopia, which happens when your natural lens loses elasticity, making it difficult to change your focus to see objects up close. Presbyopia affects most people in their 40s and early 50s. While there are several treatment options for presbyopia, the most common is reading glasses. The hassle and inconvenience of readers is driving many patients to look for a better way to improve their near vision without glasses. Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is a minimally invasive, long term solution to improve near vision without glasses. This innovative and unique procedure is an effective alternative to the hassle of readers.

What is the Inlay?
It is a small, transparent disc about the size of a pinhead and half the thickness of a human hair. The inlay is made of approximately 80% water.

How does it work?
The Raindrop, placed just below the surface in your cornea of your non-dominant eye, changes the shape of your cornea to improve the ability to focus on near objects.

How long does it last?
The Raindrop is intended to be a long-lasting solution. If you develop a cataract, the Inlay can remain in the eye, during and after cataract surgery. If for any reason you need to remove the Inlay, this can be easily done and most patients return to their vision before the procedure.
