Can you tell me about the water drop procedure to correct presbyopia?
MAR 22, 2019
I saw a procedure on TV that corrected presbyopia by injecting a drop of water behind the lens. The procedure was done in the office and took only 15 minutes. What is this procedure called? And where can I get this done in the USA?
This was called the Raindrop—it was not a drop of water, but rather a plastic inlay that was placed under your cornea. Unfortunately, it was not tolerated long-term in the cornea and could cause fibrosis/scarring. For this reason, the FDA halted further treatment with the inlay.
