Comparison of emmetropic and low hyperope patients


Here, the author discusses the findings of a recent study examining the efficacy and safety of the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay in emmetropic presbyopes and then compares these with results from an unpublished study on patients with low hyperopia.

An alternative approach

In this article, I have reviewed the findings of a recently published one-year feasibility study which investigated the safety and efficacy of the Raindrop Inlay in patients with emmetropic presbyopia,1 and I compared those findings with results from a yet unpublished study on patients with low hyperopia, focusing on visual acuity results. An important aspect of these investigations was that a flap was created for the purposes of placing the inlay, but no ablation was performed.
