Abstract Details


To report my long term commercial outcomes in patients implanted unilaterally with the Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay (ReVision Optics, Inc., Lake Forest, CA, USA) for the treatment of presbyopia


Lasikcentrum Oogkliniek , Boxtel, The Netherlands


Twenty-one (n=21) patients were implanted with the Raindrop Inlay in the non-dominant eye after creating a femtosecond LASIK flap at 150 microns depth and 8 mm diameter. Concurrent laser ablation was performed on 13 of the 21 patients with a targeted refraction of +0.75 D in the inlay eye. Postoperative measurements included: visual acuities, manifest refraction, topography, and slit lamp images


Patients (mean age: 54 years old, range 47-61) had an average postop period of 21 months. All patients achieved binocular uncorrected distance VA of 1.0 or better. 70% of the patients achieved binocular uncorrected near VA of 1.0. Two inlays were explanted: one due to recurrent haze and one for binocular imbalance (after 1.5 and 2 years respectively). Normal topograghical changes with Raindrop and complication management will be shared at the meeting


Raindrop Inlay is an effective tool for correcting presbyopia in my practice. My long term data show consistent improvements at near and intermediate vision. To ensure continued success and minimal complications, patients should be followed up every 6-12 months
