Abstract Details


To report clinical outcomes in presbyopes implanted unilaterally with Raindrop corneal inlay in the non-dominant eye with and without concurrent LASIK from a single center in Singapore.


Eagle Eye Center Singapore


Thirty (n=30) patients were implanted with Raindrop Near Vision Inlay unilaterally in the non-dominant eye under a femtosecond flap centered over the miotic pupil. If needed, concurrent laser ablations were performed targeting a postop refraction of +0.75 D. Manifest refraction, distance (6 meters) and near (30 cm, 40 cm, and 50 cm) visual acuities were collected at preop, 1W, 1M, 3M, and 6M.


Mean age of 51 years old (range: 35 to 63) at preop with mean central corneal thickness of 554 μm. Femtosecond flaps were created at mean thickness of 156 μm. At 6M postop, 15 out of 30 patients were available for analysis with an average (inlay eye) MRSE of -0.46 D and uncorrected distance VA of 6/8.3. Uncorrected near VAs (30 cm, 40 cm, and 50 cm) showed 80%, 80%, and 71% of eyes were N5 or better respectively. 90% of patients at 6M were satisfied or very satisfied with this procedure.


Raindrop Near Vision Inlay delivers very consistent near capability of N5 or better at various near distances with high patient satisfaction. This inlay technology provides a valuable, effective tool in managing presbyopes in my practice.
