Raindrop Inlay Improves Near Vision
Dr. Mark Whitten and the doctors of Eye Associates of Washington, D.C. are proud to introduce the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay to the D.C. area. We are one of the first medical centers to perform this revolutionary procedure to improve your near, or reading, vision.
The Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay is FDA-approved to reduce or eliminate your need for reading glasses. The Raindrop is indicated for patients with presbyopia, also known as age related loss of near vision.
Dr. Whitten is renowned for his extensive experience with vision correction procedures. Join the list of thousands of patients who have had their vision renewed with Dr. Whitten.
Raindrop Corneal Inlay
The Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay is a very tiny (about 2mm) transparent disk inserted within the layers of the cornea. The inlay is made up of about 80% water and the material is very similar to the material used to make contact lenses.
Dr. Whitten will insert the inlay at our Massachusetts Avenue office in Spring Valley. The procedure takes about 10 minutes and is performed in our office as an outpatient.
Raindrop Improves Near Vision | How it Works
The surface of your cornea is responsible for a most of the focusing power of your eye. Subtle changes in the shape or curvature of the corneal surface can result in calculated changes in your focusing power. This is the basis of all refractive vision procedures.
This is true with Raindrop.
The Raindrop creates a subtle change in the shape of the cornea. This small change is enough to improve your near reading vision. The Raindrop inlay is placed only in your non-dominant eye.
Ready to Give Up Your Readers?
If you are over the age of 40 and have signs of presbyopia, or near vision loss, the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay may be perfect for you.
We look forward to meeting you.
