Abstract Details


To report patient outcomes with the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay


Wellington Eye Clinic, Dublin Ireland


Near emmetropic presbyopic patients with good UDVA were implanted unilaterally in the non-dominant eye with the Raindrop inlay after creating a flap with the WaveLight FS200 femtosecond laser. Uncorrected visual acuities (UVA), manifest refraction, keratometry measurements (WaveLight, Allegro Topolyzer Vario) were measured preoperatively and at various postoperative visits.


Seven (n=7) patients (mean age: 51 y/o, range 49-58) had a pre-operative MRSE of +0.43 D. Binocular UNVA (mean, decimal) improved from 0.31 pre-op to 0.78 at 1 month and continued to improve to 0.82 at 3 months, a gain of 5 lines on average. Binocular UDVA remained unchanged from pre-op to post-op. At 3 months post-op, the mean MRSE is -0.81 D. Post inlay keratometric changes are consistent with the Raindrop Inlay’s method of action showing a steepening centrally.


The Raindrop inlay is an effective tool for correcting presbyopia. Patients gain in average of 5 lines for near and binocular distance VA remains unchanged. Keratometric measurements show a central steepening validating Raindrop’s method of action.
