Abstract Details


To evaluate the change in near acuity with PresViewTM Scleral Implants (PSI) and Scleral Spacing Procedure (SSP) at one site in the US FDA clinical trial.


Wang Vision Institute, Nashville, TN.


In a randomized prospective IDE study, near emmetropic presbyopes have careful documentation of their baseline near acuity. After SSP is performed with PSI, re-evaluation of these vision parameters are performed at various intervals. All testing is performed under standardized mesopic illumination.


An interim report of the results at Wang Vision Institute in this FDA monitored IDE clinical trial will be discussed. A comparison of the subject’s pre-op, 3 month, 6 month, 1 year, 18 month and 2 year data will be reported.


SSP with PSI is currently being studied under an FDA IDE at multiple sites in the USA. All subjects will be followed for a full two years after surgery. Results to date are showing improvements in near acuity in these presbyopic subjects. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
