To assess patient satisfaction with the RaindropTM Near Vision Inlay (ReVision Optics, Inc., Lake Forest, CA) when incorporated into a high volume, high referral LASIK center.
Ultralase Eye Clinics
Based upon early clinical evaluation, 3 surgeons at UltraLase Vision Centers offered the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay as a surgical near vision solution. UltraLase referring opticians received education on patient selection, education and follow-up. In 58 patients the non-dominant eye was implanted under a 150 ?n fs laser-created flap. All surgeries were performed on normal LASIK surgery days, and inlay patients were not segregated from LASIK patients. Near and distance visual acuities were measured at 1, 3 and 6 months. A questionnaire was used to evaluate patient satisfaction with near vision while performing common equivalent tasks.
: With at least 1 month follow-up, 96% of treated eyes saw 0.3 logMAR or better UNVA. Binocularly, 96% of patients saw 0.1 logMAR UDVA and 78.3% saw 0.1 logMAR UNVA. Regarding patient satisfaction, 52% of patients reported their results as Couldnt Be Better, 29% stated Pleased With Results, 12% responded as Satisfactory, 7% Hoped For Better. 0% of patients responded Regretted Having It Done.
The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay can be effectively incorporated into a high volume LASIK practice as a viable treatment for presbyopia in a highly motivated refractive patient population.
