Raindrop Near Vision Inlay Portsmouth

Raindrop Near Vision Inlay – Clear Advantage Laser

If you are in your 40’s or 50’s, you have most likely already experienced a decline in near vision. Have you noticed that you have to hold your phone an arms length away just to be able to focus on the words? If the answer is yes, you are experiencing the symptoms of a common condition called presbyopia.

What is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia is an age related refractive error that typically occurs around a person’s middle age. Normally, the natural lens in the eye, responsible for focusing light onto the retina, is able to flex and accommodate for near vision. As we age, the natural lens loses its elasticity and becomes less flexible. When this happens, the lens is no longer able to accommodate for close range distance.

Presbyopia treatment usually begins with a pair of reading glasses. People with presbyopia generally reach for their reading glasses each time they need to read a text, look at a label or read their favorite book. However, this quickly becomes tiring. Luckily, there is new device called the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay that can permanently correct presbyopia!

What is the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay?

The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is a tiny, contact lens shaped corneal inlay designed to correct presbyopia.  The inlay is about the size of a pinhead, and is thinner than a piece of paper. The Raindrop inlay is placed just underneath the surface of the eye, and aids in reshaping the cornea. This device is only placed in one eye, allowing both eyes to work together, resulting in both sharp near vision and clear distance vision.

The Procedure

The process of implanting the Raindrop inlay is simple, takes about 10 minutes to complete, and takes place right in our office. Your surgeon will begin by administering numbing eye drops to eliminate the possibility of any discomfort. Your surgeon will then create a small incision in the first few layers of the cornea. The Raindrop inlay is carefully positioned into the cornea. Once the inlay has been positioned, the incision is smoothed over and requires no stitches. Your surgery is over!

The Recovery Process

The recovery from the Raindrop inlay procedure is quite easy. Most people are able to return to work within a few days. Vision may fluctuate at first as your eyes adjust and learn to work together. Most people see full results in a week or two. Be sure to use your medicated eye drops as directed by your doctor, and refrain from any activities that could cause any trauma to your eye.

"I am writing this less than 24 hours after the procedure, and I'm thrilled with the results. I was very nervous, as I am about any medical procedure, but the staff and doctors could not have made the experience better. It was painless, fast and everyone made me comfortable. And the results are amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
