Age related loss of near vision, or presbyopia, happens when your natural lens loses elasticity, making it difficult to change your focus to see objects up close. Everyone – yes, everyone – will eventually experience presbyopia, making it difficult to perform daily activities, such as reading or looking at a cell phone without glasses.
Raindrop is a safe way to improve near vision. The tiny inlay, about the size of a pinhead, can be placed just beneath the surface of your eye in a 10-minute outpatient procedure. This procedure has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in June of 2016, and has been available around the world for several years prior to approval in the US.
