Raindrop Near Vision Inlay

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!

What is the Symfony IOL?

Up until recently, if you wanted to fix your presbyopia (age-related long-sightedness) you would need to get a Multifocal IOL (Intraocular Lens). The problem with a Multifocal IOL is that to be able to additionally improve your reading vision your distance vision would suffer. You would have to decide whether you would rather have better distance vision and still need reading glasses (Monofocal IOL), or if you would rather have slightly better distance and good reading vision (Multifocal IOL). You also had the option to get a Monofocal IOL in one eye and a Multifocal IOL in the other, so you could have at least one strong distance eye. Enter the Symfony IOL.

The Symfony IOL is the first and only extended range of vision IOL that corrects presbyopia. This means, that unlike the Monofocal IOL that only allows you to correct distance vision, or the Multifocal IOL that allows you to correct both but with a compromise in your distance vision, that you can now correct both without loss of quality. It also comes in a Non-Toric and Toric version for patients with astigmatism! Another added benefit of the Symfony IOL, which the Multifocal IOL had a problem with, is that there are no glares or halos with this lens, making your newly corrected vision even better!

Implanting the Symfony IOL

 The Symfony IOL is implanted during a routine cataract operation. Completed with minimum recovery time, most patients are able to go back to their normal lives within 24 hours. With a routine operation, minimal recovery time, and improved distance and reading vision without glares or halos, the Symfony IOL sounds like a great choice!
