“We are delighted with our partnership with NovaMedica, as this agreement and their knowledge of the Russian/CIS market supports our mission of actively pursuing worldwide market opportunities for Raindrop™ to provide a viable alternative to the millions and millions of people around the world who want to eliminate their reliance on their reading glasses,” said
Raindrop™ Near Vision Corneal Inlay is a microscopic hydrogel inlay designed to correct presbyopia, thus reducing or even eliminating the need for reading glasses. Raindrop™ is placed just beneath the surface of the non-dominant eye during a five-minute procedure. It is comprised of approximately 80% water and therefore has a refractive index very similar to the cornea. The inlay gently produces a smooth variation in focal power across the pupil by microscopically altering the surface shape of the cornea. It is as transparent as natural tears, and therefore does not restrict the amount of light reaching the retina. The gentle reshaping of the anterior curvature of the cornea provides for a natural restoration of near and intermediate vision.
Presbyopia is considered to be a natural part of the aging process and is believed to be caused by the gradual loss of elasticity of the eye’s lens, which decreases the ability to focus up close. The first symptoms usually occur between the ages of 40 and 50.
ReVision Optics has recently completed patient enrollment in its U.S. Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) clinical trial designed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Raindrop™ Near Vision Inlay in improving near vision in patients with presbyopia and is now in the process of gathering follow-up data to submit to the U.S.
Clinical trials and the registration of the technology will be conducted in
