Abstract Details

Purpose:

Corneal Inlay insertion is a treatment for presbyopia. Current approval for space occupying inlay is under a LASIK flap. In this pilot study we describe our initial experience with pocket insertion.

Setting:

Singapore National Eye Centre

Methods:

Prospective clinical trial of presbyopic patients who underwent space occupying inlay insertion in a pocket incision. All pocket incisions were created with a femtosecond laser. Inlays were inserted using a custom delivery system. Main outcome measures included: Distance vision, Near vision, complications including haze formation.

Results:

Six patients underwent inlay insertion. Mean follow up time varied from 3-9 months. Mean age was 46. Mean preop near vision was N12 mean add �.5D. All patients underwent uncomplicated pocket creation with a Z8 femtosecond laser. Inlay insertion was performed without complication. 1 patient needed inlay adjustment 1 week postop. Mean postoperative unaided reading vision was N6. Mean improvement in near vision was 4 lines. All patients were spectacle independent. There was no loss of uncorrected distance visual acuity in either eye. There was no haze formation.

Conclusions:

Space occupying presbyopic inlay insertion is a viable option following pocket insertion. Patients experienced good visual improvement by 1 week.
