Abstract Details


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.


Singapore National Eye Centre


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.


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.


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