Hydrogel corneal inlay improves near, intermediate, distance vision at 3 months

Steinert, MD, OSN Cornea/External Disease Board Member, spoke about the Raindrop near vision inlay (ReVision Optics). “This is really better than anybody expected,” Steinert said. “It’s providing uninterrupted functional vision and satisfaction across a very wide range of preop refractive errors. … We think the real sweet spot is going to be somewhere around the very low hyperopic side and not higher than +1.5 (Read more...)
