What is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia is a natural condition that affects almost everyone as they age. As we get older, the lens of your eye changes and is no longer as elastic as it once was. Proteins in the lens of your eye harden over time and cause the eye to have difficulty focusing on objects up close.

The hallmark of presbyopia is having to hold cell phones, books, and newspapers at arm’s length in order to focus properly. It typically becomes noticeable in your mid to late 40’s and can worsen over time. Most people cope with the blurry vision by using reading glasses.

Presbyopia is not the same condition as farsightedness. Farsightedness is due to the natural shape of your eye’s lens, whereas Presbyopia is due to lost lens elasticity.

Presbyopia is a natural part of aging and cannot be prevented. It will persist over your lifetime, so if you choose to combat presbyopia with glasses or contacts, you may need to adjust your prescription over time.

Clear Vision, Little Downtime

and Amazing Results

How Does the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay Work?

The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay works by reshaping the cornea in order to help focus and correct your vision. The inlay is implanted beneath the surface of your eye during a short ten-minute procedure.

The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is a microscopic hydrogel device that is 80% water. This tiny device, when implanted, allows for a more effective fluid and nutrient diffusion through the cornea. Because of the composition of the microscopic hydrogel, Raindrop Near Vision Inlays are almost identical to the human cornea.

The procedure itself is a simple outpatient procedure: Using a laser, your surgeon will create a small flap on the surface of the cornea. The Raindrop Inlay is then implanted under this flap where is reshapes the curvature of your cornea.

How do they Implant the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay?

The implanting procedure of Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is similar to LASIK Eye Surgery. The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay gets implanted just beneath the surface of the eye. The procedure uses a specialized laser that creates a thin flap in the cornea. The thin flap allows the surgeon to lay the lens into place and wait for it to adhere. After it is adhered the surgeon closes the flap and completes the procedure. The eye will heal naturally without the need for any stitches or sutures.

The entire procedure can be completed in about 10 minutes and usually requires very minimal recovery time. In fact, most patients return to work or their daily activities within one day.

Who Are Candidates for the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay?

Most people don’t notice their presbyopia symptoms until around age 40 or so. Around that time, the farsightedness associated with Presbyopia becomes apparent and continues to worsen over time. Many patients first notice symptoms like needing to hold a newspaper or mobile phone at arms-length to be able to read clearly.

The only way to truly find out if the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is right for you is to schedule a consultation.  A typical candidate is about 40 t0 65 years of age who are currently wearing reading glasses to combat the effects of presbyopia. The Raindrop procedure is not for everyone: Those who have had cataract surgery, have certain corneal diseases, chronic dry eye problems, and other prohibitive eye conditions may not be able to undergo the procedure.

During your preliminary Raindrop Near Vision Inlay consultation, your doctor will perform a thorough examination to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. Careful consideration is given to the anatomy of your eye and any preexisting eye conditions.
