Abstract Details


To report safety and efficacy of a refractive corneal inlay for presbyopia .


Federal University of Sao Paulo-UNIFESP


Corneal Inlays (Presbia Flexivue Microlens™, Presbia Coöperatief U.A., Netherlands) were implanted in the non-dominant eye of 31 emmetropic presbyopic patients (0.75 SE 1.00SE) after the creation of a 300 microns depth stromal pocket using a femtosecond laser.Patients were followed according to a clinical protocol,and include collection of visual acuity data, including refraction, anterior segment imaging analysis(Oculyzer,Alcon) and wavefront evaluation (Nidek OPD Scan).


The mean age of patients in the population is 50,07 years (range 45 to 60 years); 70% of the study population is female, and 30% is male. The mean UNVA improved to J 1 in 82,6% of eyes treated with the inlay. All eyes improved four lines in all visits. Patients reported near vision to be good or excellent in 86,4%. Two patients were explanted due to blurred vision for distance and near. One patient developed a superficial corneal ulcer after 20 months. Two patients underwent cataract removal .One patient underwent inlay exchange to increase near power correction.


The Presbia Flexivue Microlens™ provided patients with an effective treatment for the correction of presbyopia by providing an improvement in near vision. Manageable complications may occur in the long term follow up.
