Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay: FDA-Approved Technology for Presbyopia Treatment


A new and effective option for people suffering with presbyopia is now FDA-approved and available in cities across the country. Introducing The Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay, a small, transparent, curved disc called a corneal inlay, Raindrop is made up of about 80% water and of materials similar to that of a contact lens. This exciting new treatment offers a long-term solution to your presbyopia.

Raindrop was recently approved by the FDA, making it the first corneal shape changing inlay to hit the market and offer the simplest way to effectively and efficiently correct presbyopia for the millions of people.

“The outstanding clinical results that supported FDA approval of the Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay clearly show that patients who have difficulty with near vision due to presbyopia, now have a new option to obtain excellent uncorrected vision at all distances,” said John Kilcoyne, ReVision Optics President and Chief Executive Officer.

The easy, LASIK-like procedure takes approximately 10 minutes with steady vision improvement as early as 7 days after surgery.  The Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay helps resolve the “on, off, on, off” reading glasses situation that so many presbyopic people put up with every day.

“Over the years in my practice I’ve continually heard from patients with presbyopia that they are looking for an alternative to reading glasses,” said Dr. Steve Slade, Houston based ophthalmologist and one of the first doctors to perform the Raindrop procedure. “The Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay provides that solution and brings what we call the ‘WOW’ factor to these patients with quickly enhanced near and intermediate vision, without impairing binocular distance vision.”
