Reading Glasses DON'T Have to Be Inevitable

TODAY COULD BE THE LAST DAY

 

Alternatives to Reading Glasses

Many people over age 40 need to wear reading glasses to see up close. This is due to the naturally-occurring vision condition of presbyopia where the eye lens becomes less flexible over time, making it increasingly difficult to read without glasses.

Atwal Eye Care now offers two different treatments to help people struggling with reading glasses

Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay

How Raindrop Works

The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is a microscopic inlay that is placed within the first few layers of the cornea (the clear front of the eye) of your non-dominant eye to gently alter the shape of the cornea. By making the corneal shape steeper, the eye can focus up close.

Raindrop Procedure

The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay procedure takes approximately 20 minutes:

  • Your non-dominant eye is numbed
  • A femtosecond laser is used to create a corneal flap
  • The inlay is gently placed into the eye
  • The corneal flap is replaced and heals naturally

Most patients can return to work within 24-48 hours after the procedure. Full vision improvement may take several months to one year.

In a clinical trial, 92% of patients were able to see with 20/40 vision or better at near distances 2 years after the procedure.

Candidates for Raindrop Inlay

  • Candidates are typically age 40-55
  • No previous eye procedures
  • No existing eye conditions
  • Rely on reading glasses to focus on up close objects

KAMRA Inlay

The KAMRA Inlay works by placing a very thin lens within the first few layers of the eye known as the cornea. Smaller and thinner than a contact lens, the KAMRA Inlay has a mini ring that has an opening, or pinhole, in the center. This allows your eye to focus on near objects without reshaping your cornea, or affecting your distance vision.
