An End to Reading Glasses
Are you frustrated with having to wear reading glasses but otherwise have good distance vision? Do you have to find your reading glasses to see a menu or a price tag? If so, there is a simple solution available through the Dean McGee Eye Institute -- the Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay.
Raindrop® is a small, transparent, curved disc the size of a pinhead called a corneal inlay. The inlay is placed just below the surface of the cornea during a ten minute procedure similar to LASIK. Made of approximately 80% water and from a material similar to a soft contact lens, it works by reshaping the front of the eye and restoring near vision.

Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay allows those suffering from near vision loss to get back to life without constantly searching for reading glasses.
On average, patients see an improvement of five lines of near vision on an eye chart without the assistance of reading glasses within one week of surgery.
The Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay is an FDA-approved procedure for restoring near vision. As with LASIK, the Raindrop® inlay is an out-of-pocket expense.
