Presbia Flexivue™ Corneal Inlay

30 Nov 2012

The Flexivue System is a corneal inlay to correct presbyopia, developed by Presbia Coöperatief U.A. (Amsterdam and Los Angeles) and available exclusively in Ireland at Optilase.
The Presbia Flexivue Microlens™ inlay is inserted into a small pocket created in the central cornea with a femtosecond laser — the same type of laser used to create the corneal flap in all laser LASIK.
Unlike LASIK surgery, people undergoing the Presbia procedure will have no corneal tissue loss as a little pocket is made by the laser, and the Flexivue Microlens™ is inserted and positioned over the eye.

Corneal Implant Surgery Risks

As with any vision correction surgery, there are some minor risks associated with corneal implant and inlay surgery, including risks of infection and reduced vision.
Some patients may experience visual symptoms, including glare, halos, blurry or fluctuating vision and night vision problems. These symptoms are usually temporary and tend to resolve over time without treatment, or additional surgery may be required in rare cases.

Excellent Aftercare at Optilase

Once you have the Presbia™ procedure at Optilase, you will be monitored closely by your Optometrist and Ophthalmic Surgeon in a series of follow-up visits.
It’s important to attend your follow-up visits so your healing process and visual outcomes can be evaluated, and although you can probably dispense with your reading glasses you might need them if you’re doing close work for long periods of time, or in poor light.
If your vision isn’t improved to an acceptable level after corneal implant surgery, in some cases removing the intracorneal inlay and replacing it with one of a different power may improve results.

Your Options Remain Open with Presbia

Remember that your Flexivue Microlens™ is easily removed or exchanged as your vision requirements change, and you can always avail of a different type of refractive surgery, such as LASIK or PRK, to improve your vision as time goes on if your surgeon advises it.
