Abstract Details

Purpose:

To report the experiences and early clinical outcomes of my patients implanted with the Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay (ReVision Optics, Inc, Lake Forest, CA) for the correction of presbyopia

Setting:

Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Brest – CHU, Brest Cedex, France

Methods:

Commercial registry of presbyopes implanted with the Raindrop Inlay in the non-dominant eye under a femtosecond flap. Manifest refraction, visual acuities at distance and near, and a patient satisfaction questionnaire were collected at 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, and 4 months postoperatively.

Results:

Interim data at 4 months (n=7), the mean age was 53.5 years (range: 48-58) with pre-operative MRSE of +0.36 D. 71% of patients achieved uncorrected near visual acuities of 0.5 or better both monocularly and binocularly. Binocularly all patients had visual acuities of 0.5 or better at distance. All patients were satisfied with their near vision postoperatively.

Conclusions:

The Raindrop Inlay yielded good early visual outcomes showing that the majority of patients see 0.5 or better for near vision and all patients see 0.5 or better for binocular distance vision. Initial results show promise for this inlay technology commercially in my practice. Additional patient enrollment and long-term outcomes are needed to corroborate with published results.
