What is the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay and Why do I Need it?
The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is made from a microscopic hydrogel that has been designed to improve the near vision that your eye has lost due to the natural aging process, otherwise known as presbyopia. Presbyopia is most commonly treated using reading glasses. With Raindrop Near Vision Inlays you will no longer have to worry about putting your glasses on and off again!
The microscopic hydrogel that is used to make the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is composed of almost 80% water. This makes for a more effective nutrient diffusion and allows for it to easily transfer through the cornea. The characteristics of the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay are almost identical to the human cornea, making it an ideal alternative to reading glasses.
How do they Implant the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay?
The procedure for implanting the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is similar to the procedure for Lasik eye surgery. It is an outpatient procedure where the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is implanted just beneath the surface of the eye. To do this, they use a specialized laser to create a thin and circular flap in the cornea. The surgeon then lifts the flap and lays the lens into place and waits for it to adhere. Once the lens is adhered they can now close the flap and that completes the procedure. The whole procedure only takes about 15 minutes and there is minimal recovery time, with most patients returning to their normal routines the next day!
