Difficulty Reading? Raindrop Corneal Inlay

Friday, October 17th, 2014

The Raindrop Corneal Inlay is the newest inlay and was performed first in Canada at the Bochner Eye Institute 5 months ago. The inlay is currently available only through special access through Health Canada.
The inlay is transparent, only 2 mm in size, and placed beneath a corneal flap.
The Raindrop increases central steepening to enhance reading.
Unlike other inlays it can provide satisfactory reading vision even in dim light.
Follow-up on our initial patients have been very encouraging with a high patient satisfaction and quick return of both distance and near vision.
