Before having the Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay procedure you should have a complete eye examination and discuss alternative treatments, potential benefits, complications, risks, healing time, and any other concerns you have about having the procedure.  

* Intermediate vision was measured in the pivotal clinical study, but it was not an endpoint.

What is presbyopia?

Presbyopia is a condition associated with aging of the eye that results in progressively worsening ability to focus clearly on close objects. People over 35 are at risk for developing presbyopia and all people become affected to some degree.

Symptoms include difficulty reading small print, having to hold reading material farther away, headaches and eyestrain. Different people will have different degrees of problems.

Presbyopia is a natural part of the aging process. It is due to hardening of the lens of the eye causing the eye to focus light behind rather than on the retina when looking at close objects. It is a type of refractive error along with nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Diagnosis is by an eye exam.
