Dr. Jennifer Sokolosky, the very first person in the Washington, D.C. area to receive the Raindrop near vision inlay, has her journey documented here. The inlay is FDA approved to treat near vision loss due to presbyopia.
Follow her entire journey from pre-operative consultation to the post-operative interview conducted by NBC 4’s very own Barbara Harrison.
Minutes before Dr. Sokolosky can not read the directions on saline bottle.
Raindrop is performed in our surgical suite located in our Spring Valley office, Washington D.C.'s first Raindrop procedure is performed taking about 10 minutes.
Just minutes after having the procedure performed, Dr. Sokolosky's near vision has been restored.
Thank you to NBC!
