FDA Approves Raindrop Near Vision Inlay to Treat Presbyopia

June 30, 2016

On June 29, 2016, the FDA approved the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay, a device implanted in the cornea of one eye to improve near vision in certain patients with presbyopia.

The safety and effectiveness of the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay were studied in a clinical trial of 373 subjects implanted with the device. Two years after implantation, 92 percent of patients included in the analysis (336 out of 364) were able to see with 20/40 vision or better at near distances with the inlay-implanted eye.

The inlay is manufactured by ReVision Optics.
