Improve the near vision that has been lost by the eye’s natural aging process—presbyopia
Presbyopia effects over 114 million people in the US and is usually noticeable in your mid-40s, making it more difficult to read at close range, especially things like menus, product labels, and phone messages —all while your distance vision remains clear.
Common signs of presbyopia include holding reading materials farther away, blurry vision when reading, or trouble focusing on near objects. If you are frustrated with presbyopia and are tired of keeping track of your readers, then you may benefit from the Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay, now available at Jackson Eye
The Raindrop® Near Vison Inlay is a safe way to treat age related near vision loss, or presbyopia. Presbyopia is a condition that causes your eye to lose the ability to change focus from distant to near objects. It is a natural part of aging that most people begin to experience after age 40.
Raindrop is the world’s first inlay to change the cornea (the clear, front part of the eye) to improve near vision. Raindrop is incredibly small – about the size of a pinhead and less than half the thickness of a human hair – and is bioengineered to mimic the natural cornea. The LASIK-style outpatient procedure takes about 10-minutes and patients go back to most of their daily activities the next day.
Dr. Mitch Jackson of Jacksoneye says, “I am excited to be able to offer the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay to our community. For adults in their 40s and 50s who want visual freedom from reading glasses, we now have a solution to restore their full range of vision. If you are frustrated with the inability to see close-up, there’s nothing to lose expect your reading glasses.”
How Does Raindrop® Work?
The Raindrop is placed just beneath the surface of the eye during a 5- minute procedure. The Raindrop reshapes the front part of your eye so you can see up close again. The day of treatment will require relaxing activities, but most people are okay to resume normal activities the following day.
Is Raindrop covered by Insurance?
No. The Raindrop procedure is not covered by insurance, but financing is available. FSA plans can also be used.
