Article

According to several presentations given during the American Society of Cataracts and Refractive Surgery 2014 meeting, the investigational Raindrop (ReVision Optics) transparent hydrogel corneal inlay has shown to be consistently effective for the correction of presbyopia, is relatively easy to implant, and has high patient satisfaction.

Boston-According to several presentations given during the American Society of Cataracts and Refractive Surgery 2014 meeting, the investigational Raindrop (ReVision Optics) transparent hydrogel corneal inlay has shown to be consistently effective for the correction of presbyopia, is relatively easy to implant, and has high patient satisfaction.

The Raindrop is a transparent inlay, which is about 30 µm thick and 2 mm in diameter, was designed to be placed on the stroma, beneath a 150 µm femtosecond laser-created flap. The inlay is biocompatible and has a water content similar to the cornea and the same refractive index.

Reports, such as one given by Julian Theng, FROCphth, MMed, found a low complication rate and high patient satisfaction at his practice in Singapore.
