Simple; they can give you back your near vision. Actually, you only need one of them; just a single corneal inlay is implanted into your non-dominant eye.
Why Corneal Inlays?
Corneal inlays are really less invasive than other current types of presbyopia treatments. For example, if you have Presbyopia at the moment you’re probably using reading glasses to see this. Wouldn’t it be nice not to be dependent on corrective eyewear for close vision?
There are other surgical treatments that can help you get rid of your glasses; yes-but they have side effects which create monovision; not an optimal solution for a lot of patients.
Is Having a Corneal Inlay a Big Surgery?
The Presbia Flexivue Microlens™ is easy to implant and, in most cases, the procedure takes less than 10 minutes.
The Presbia Flexivue Microlens™ is removable and replaceable if the patient needs additional power later, since visual acuity predictably changes with aging. It’s the ideal solution to an aging eye problem, with the flexibility of change and updating allowed for.
How does a Corneal Inlay work?
Essentially, the Flexivue Microlens changes the refractive index of the eye and creates a myopic area in the centre of the field of vision. In other words, it makes you able to see things close up, by correcting the focus of the eyes so that objects near the eye seem clearer and brighter, as the image is now being focused correctly onto the retina by the corneal implant.
