Abstract Details


Evaluate the safety and efficacy of combining corneal inlay implantation and laser vision correction using a dual-interface technique to extend depth of focus for myopic presbyopes.


Global data registry(41 clinics in 18 countries)


Retrospective analysis 7421 myopic presbyopes from 46 centers in 19 countries implanted monocularly with a small aperture inlay. Refractive error was treated using a standard LASIK procedure followed by inlay implantation into a femtosecond laser-created lamellar pocket. The manifest spherical equivalent refraction (MRSE), uncorrected near acuity (UCNVA), uncorrected distance acuity (UCDVA), and best-corrected distance acuity (BCDVA) were evaluated pre-operatively (n = 7421), week 1 (n= 7092), month 1 (n= 6784), month 3 (n= 6242), month 6 (n= 5644), month 12 (n= 4285) and month 18 (n= 2373). Visual acuity is represented in logMAR.


At 18 months, the MRSE in the inlay eye was -0.77D ± 0.79D. UCNVA improved 4 lines from 0.42 ± 0.29 at preop to 0.02 ± 0.13 at 18-months (p<0.0001). UCDVA improved to -0.01 ± 0.14 at 18-months from 0.05 ± 0.41 at preop (p<0.0001). 99.8% of patients achieved >20/25 BCDVA at 18 months. 0.36% experienced a sustained loss of 2 or more lines of BCDVA at 18 months. 90.4% of patients were within ±1.0D of target refraction. At 18 months, 88.2% and 77.2% of inlay eyes achieved 20/25 (J2) or better for distance and near respectively.


Combining LASIK and small aperture inlay implantation using a dual-interface technique significantly improves uncorrected near and distance vision without compromising best-corrected distance vision in myopic presbyopes.
