corneal inlay

Deeper implantation depth for inlay may enhance visual performanceA comparative analysis suggests placement of a cornea inlay (Kamra, AcuFocus) has improved patient satisfaction, refractive stability, and visual results when placed at 250 μm or deeper in the cornea. Shallower implantation depths may be more prone to refractive instability and lower patient satisfaction.
Inlays provide option for presbyopic correctionThree corneal inlays are in clinical use for improving near vision in phakic presbyopic patients with low refractive spherical equivalent.
Clinicians coming to terms with dysfunctional lens syndromeUsing dysfunctional lens syndrome stages, physicians can discuss a range of treatment options with patients, based on clinical findings and refractive error.
Managing presbyopia with surgeryCurrent methodologies for surgically addressing presbyopia and new technologies that are shaping the process.
Was 2015 the year of inlays, FLACS, or something else?While 2015 may not have been the year for ground-breaking introductions or trials in the field of refractive surgery, plenty of improvements have kept the procedure an evolving process, Ophthalmology Times editorial advisory board members said.
Corneal inlay technology offers new advantagesCorneal inlays to correct refractive errors are not new—various materials have been tried for more than 50 years to correct blurred vision. The greatest barriers to success of corneal inlays have been a lack of biocompatibility with the cornea, the difficulty of placing them within the corneal stroma safely, and refractive predictably.
Achieving balanced visionHere, Dr Verdoorn presents his experiences with the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay, which he has found to be a successful option for presbyopic patients.
Reports find Raindrop hydrogel corneal inlay can help presbyopesAccording to several presentations given during the American Society of Cataracts and Refractive Surgery 2014 meeting, the investigational Raindrop (ReVision Optics) transparent hydrogel corneal inlay has shown to be consistently effective for the correction of presbyopia, is relatively easy to implant, and has high patient satisfaction.

Physician-patient receives corneal inlay in his own eyeA surgeon undergoing implantation of a corneal inlay to treat presbyopia enjoys the same visual benefits as his patients with the device.
