How Does Raindrop Near Vision Inlay Work?

Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay helps reshape the front of the eye, restoring near vision. The inlay is placed just below the surface of the eye during a simple ten minute procedure. It is placed in the non-dominate eye, offering a long term solution to presbyopia.

About Raindrop Near Vision Inlay Technology

Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is a microscopic, transparent disc called an inlay, which is implanted just beneath the surface of your eye. The inlay is made of approximately 80% water and works by reshaping the cornea, clear front part of your eye, to improve the ability to focus on near objects while minimally impacting distance vision.

Am I A Candidate?

Dr. Fedyk will determine if you are a candidate for the Raindrop procedure through a series of tests and measurements on your eyes. You may be a candidate if:

  •   Are between 41-65 years of age
  •   Wear reading glasses
  •   Experience blurry vision when reading or focusing on near objects
  •   Do not need corrective eyewear to see far away

What To Expect

In preparation for your procedure you will be given a prescription eye drops. The procedure only takes about 10 minutes, and is performed with a laser similar to LASIK procedures. Recovery is quick, with many patients resuming normal activities the next day, and aftercare includes prescription eye drops and follow up appointments. Patients see an improvement in vision within one week and vision continues to improve for several weeks, with the majority (>87%) of patients achieving 20/25 near vision or better.
